They did not improve the report with time.
I submitted the idea of XML reporting more than a year and a half to
Parasoft when I exposed my nightly build requirements. I was amazed by how
poor were the reporting features for the price.

Parasoft was definitely too expensive for this purpose and integration would
have been more painful. I also absolutely did not like the pressure to buy
the tool.
They were reluctent to even give me a 3-day evaluation and we were speaking
about a $20,000 figure.

JTest developer version is way too expensive for the features (one class at
a time), the learning curve is somewhat consequent if you use the dynamic
About the 'project' version, it is damn expensive.

Out of curiosity how much did you pay for JTest ?
