Is anyone currently looking into this, and is this still considered a reasonable use of AntUnit?
We do a lot of different types of testing -- from drivers and distros to middleware integration
-- and I'm interested in any opinions on this possibility.

You might want to consider WebTest (
I have about 10 customers using it quite happily. It is ant extensions
just like AntUnit. 5 of those customers now use it almost exclusively
with Groovy. 2 arbitrarily mix AntUnit and WebTest (via Groovy).
