The JavaDoc is perhaps misleading.  Build failure, for the platform is
considered to be an internal error in the builder itself, rather than
a compile error in a file.  So we only throw a CoreException when
something goes wrong.

Look for error markers, something like:
private boolean isProjectSuccesfullyBuild(IProject project) {
	boolean result = false;
	try {
		result = project.findMaxProblemSeverity(IMarker.PROBLEM, true,
	} catch (CoreException e) {
	return result;
