Thanks both,

Yeah I'm guessing the UI layer is not as important as long as the service classes doesn't
crumble if there's some UI bugs. Selenium looks quite interesting though. Peter, if I test
the classes as plain java classes I'm guessing I would have to use 

DataContext context = DataContext.createDataContext();

hi fredrik,

we use simple junit tests for testing the service layer of our webapps. in the service layer
we receive a datacontext via the cayenne servlet-listener using DataContext.getThreadedDataContext().
so we do a DataContext.bindThreadedDataContext(newContext) in the setup-method of the unit-test.

for testing the webapp there are several possibilites: html-unit, selenium ...

kind regards

Betreff: Unit testing web apps

Do you have any recommendations/guide lines for testing a Cayenne web
application. Do I need a combination of cactus for the web pages and
jUnit for the service layer and data objects? Would I be able to access
the cayenne data context from within the setup and tear down functions.
Or should I consider this testing as a completely separate application
from the current web app since the test is not running as a servlet and
can't get the context from there? How do you guys test your apps?
