Subject Best way to run Cactus in an IDE (WAS RE: Using Cactus to test EJB deployed to Weblogic6.1)
Date Thu, 10 Jan 2002 23:49:01 GMT
Here is I think the best way to run Cactus tests from an IDE. I'll use
WebLogic 6.1 as an example but it works with any other application
server although you need to adapt it a bit (you can have a look at the
Ant scripts provided as part of the Cactus distribution to learn how to
start your servlet engine/application server in a directory other than
the default).

A - Setup
-----------

1/ Have the following kind of directory structure :

myproject
 |_ src
 |_ output
   |_config
     |_ mydomain
       |_ applications
         |_ mywebapp
            |_ WEB-INF
              |_ classes
              |_ web.xml
              |_ lib
       |_ config.xml
       |_ SerializedsystemIni.dat
       |_ fileRealm.properties

2/ In your IDE, set the output classes directory to be
myproject/output/config/mydomain/applications/mywebapp/WEB-INF/classes

3/ Ensure that you have the cactus redirectors defined in web.xml

4/ Copy cactus.properties to
myproject/output/config/mydomain/applications/mywebapp/WEB-INF/classes

5/ Ensure that you have cactus.jar, junit.jar, commons-httpclient.jar
(and optionally log4j.jar) in
myproject/output/config/mydomain/applications/mywebapp/WEB-INF/lib

6/ Create an entry in your IDE to start weblogic, using the following
parameters :

class name : weblogic.Server
class path : weblogic_sp.jar (if it exists) and weblogic.jar 
jvm arguments : 

"-hotspot"
"-ms64m"
"-mx64m"
"-Djava.library.path=<bea home>/wlserver6.1/bin"
"-Dweblogic.RootDirectory=myproject/output"
"-Dweblogic.Domain=mydomain"
"-Dweblogic.Name=testserver" (name defined in your WL config.xml file)
"-Dbea.home=<bea home>"
"-Dweblogic.management.password=<your password>"
"-Djava.security.policy==./lib/weblogic.policy"

B- Running a test
------------------

1/ Start weblogic from the defined entry above (in step A-6). You only
need to do this once and do not need to repeat it for each test.
Modified classes should be reloaded automatically. If your IDE does not
support this, you may have to start weblogic manually beforehand, using
a script for example.

*WARNING* : Make sure that your IDE does not prepend your output classes
directory to the classpath being used to start weblogic. Otherwisem your
classes will be loaded using the system classloader and won't be
reloadable, which means you would have to repeat this step for each test
run.

2/ Choose a test case class with a main method and run it. Normally your
IDE will prepend to the classpath the output classes directory. Normally
you would also have included the cactus.jar, junit.jar,
commons-httpclient.jar  in your project classpath (to compile the
project), thus they would also be added. As you put cactus.properties in
WEB-INF/classes (i.e. in your class output directory) the client part of
cactus will find it. Configure cactus.properties to point to
http://localhost:<port used in config.xml>/mywebapp/ServletRedirector

3/ Try modifying the test class or a class under test and rerun it
without stopping weblogic. The changes should be picked up.

C- Conclusion
-------------

I'm writing this from memory so I may be forgetting stuff. Tell me if it
works. I'll try it when I have some time ... If you tell me it works,
I'll put these instructions on the cactus web site.

Thanks
-Vincent
