Gradle Goodness: Quickly Open Test Report in IntelliJ IDEA

When we execute a Gradle test task in IntelliJ IDEA the IDE test runner is used. This means we can get a nice overview of all tests that have run. If a test is successful we get a green light, otherwise it is red in case of an error or orange in case of a failure. Gradle also generates a nice HTML report when we run the test task. It is placed in the directory build/reports/tests/. IntelliJ IDEA has a button which opens this report when we click on it. The following screenshot shows the button with the tooltip that opens a Gradle test report:
