The implementation is a bit out-of-date now, but you can have
it+javadocs+ramblings I wrote to myself on said topic. See
started testcase docs attached.

Ya ya. Please ask as necessary. I just want to leverage whatever
ends up in the Ant distrib.

I'm not sure which macrodef you're referring to here but it turned
on that the AntX assertions worked so well the AntUnit stuff
concentrates on test management stuff and has no assertions at all.
Most of my tasks I test from Ant; my JUnit stuff just calls the Ant
stuff using a modified BuildFileTest. See attached samples. I've
attached some testsuites I created w/ my assertions and plain Ant
as the run harness (no AntUnit).
