Subject Re: getting started with activemq development
Date Wed, 22 Sep 2010 17:38:28 GMT
I have been able to run tests for activemq-core via maven.  Thanks.  I'm looking for tests
in activemq-web, and not finding any.  Are there no tests for AjaxServlet, MessageListenerServlet,
etc?  I suspect maybe I'm looking in the wrong place.
