JsonFormatter and JsonPrettyFormatter require Appendable, FormatterFactory uses File #232

RC20 uses Gherkin java 2.9.0 which contains JsonFormatter and JsonPrettyFormatter classes which only have a constructor with a single Appendable arg.

The FormatterFactory tries, if the out arg is a File, to construct these with a File arg and results in java.lang.NoSuchMethodException: gherkin.formatter.JSONPrettyFormatter.(

Previously if the out arg was a File, it would be wrapped in a FileWriter in the FormatterFactory before constructing the Formatter.


I'll be fixing this when I attack #160, #142 and #148 - it's long overdue!
