Subject Re: problem using include

Thanks for your response.  First of all, perhaps I over 
stated the Struts-like nature of our framework.  It has 
similar concepts (Operations instead of Actions, InputBean 
instead of FormBeans), but isn't actually based in Struts 
by Jakarta.  :-(  I have been trying to create a 
BaseTestCase, loosely based on StrutsTestCase (servlet 
genre) that extends ServletTestCase.  At this point, it's 
still pretty thin, as I'm just trying to get a simple test 
case working against an operation.

I remember seeing that e-mail you attached, but hadn't 
made the connection.  I think that will help.

Ah, I think this is tripping me up.  I was hoping the 
wrapped request object would be passed along.  The 
controller servlet would do it's thing, and the endXxx 
method would use the HttpUnit methods to assert the 
returned values.

Since Cactus comes in 2.2 and 2.3 flavors, how difficult 
would it be to pass on that wrapped request for flavor 
2.3??  Is it a small tweak, a big deal, or something in 
between?  Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!!
