Xvfb failure does not fail build

    • xvfb-plugin
    • RHEL 6.2

      When using the Xvfb plugin, if the plugin fails to establish a connection, then the build should fail, as any tests that depend on an Xvfb display are bound to fail also. Or, at least there should be an option in the advance settings to fail the job if Xvfb fails.

      Currently, the plugin simply logs an error, and then proceeds with the rest of the build job.
