Thanks very much for your help. Indeed I was missing the webapp part completely. I have another
question. Is Cactus only for testing the cookie and session objects? Can't we test some code
for example some database code in the servlet? Is it possible with the present cactus structure
to invoke database and get result? Do we need t o make any changes ?

It seems you're missing a complete part of the Servlet spec, which is
the notion of WebApp. It is the way to package an application and is the
common and standard way of deploying an application. I would suggest you
do some reading (just download the servlet spec for example or find a
tutorial on javaworld) and then if you still have some additional
questions, come back here, and we will answer then with pleasure.

See some comments inline below.

this belongs to your webapp (see servlet spec).

I mean the webapp context (which is usually the name of the webapp war

setUp() and teardown() work in the same way as for JUnit except that
they are executed on the server side.
