Overriding Documented Test Reposts XML Destination fails due wrong properties specified

We are upgrading from gradle 2.14.1 and we need to override for the moment the specified reports xml destination due that we need our jenkins pipeline working with the old test results directory for the time being.

However it seems that the documentation in the Gradle Release Notes for Version 3.0 in how to override the test result dir for test.reports.xml.destination is wrong.

  • The properties test.reports.html and project.testReportDir exists
  • But there is no such properties test.reports.xml or project.testResultDir

But the property test.reports.junitXml is available which seems to be the one referenced as test.reports.xml seems this is a typo.
