The junit task is fully functional.  The problem you are running into is
that the task depends on JUnit 3.2, which is not available on the machine
doing the nightly build.  Thus, the junit task set isn't compiled ('cause
that would break the build...) and included in Ant.  If you want to use the
junit tasks, you need to compile Ant yourself, ensuring that JUnit is on
your classpath.  The docs give pretty good instructions on how to build Ant

Subject:  junit ant task

I downloaded the nightly build of ant last night and tried out some of the
latest features this morning.  I'm interested in the new junit optional
type.  I installed JUnit 3.2 and tried using it with the junit ant task.
However, when I tried this I got the following error:

build.xml:35: Could not create task of type: junit because I can't find it
in the list of task class definitions

I suspect that this feature is not yet fully functional since it doesn't
show up in the ant.jar file.  I'm very interested in this feature, but
haven't had time to dig into the source yet.  What is the current status of
the junit ant task type?
