Subject JMS support in Cactus (WAS RE: [junit] Using JUnit or Cactus for testing JMS)
Date Wed, 19 Dec 2001 20:50:18 GMT
Alan,

Cactus does not currently support unit testing of JMS applications. At
the current time, it only has an HTTP injector. However, I am also
interested in unit testing JMS listeners, especially EJB Message-Driven
Beans. I'm planning to include a JMS injector (i.e. the ability to send
a JMS message in the beginXXX() method of a test case) and have a Cactus
MDB redirector which would make available the Message object to your
test case, in the same spirit as what Cactus currently does for
Servlets/Taglibs/Filters.

Thus a typical test case would be :

Public MyTestCase extends MDBTestCase
{
[...]
   public void beginXXX(JMSRequest request)
   {
      // set up the message to send
      [...]
   }

   public void testXXX()
   {
      MyMDBBean mdb = new MyMDBBean();
      mdb.onMessage(message);
      // perform asserts
   }
[...]
}

In summary :
- the focus is on unit testing MDB, not in testing the JMS server
- it is focused on testing MDB, not generic JMS listeners
- a subsequent version might provide a generic JMS listener redirector
(i.e. not a MDB)

What do you think ? Would you like this ?

Thanks
-Vincent
