One question I have is why do you need Cactus for that? It seems to me
you could use HttpUnit directly, no? Or are you performing some tests in
your testXXX() method like verifying what's in the request, session,

Anyway, back to your question :-)

I believe the problem is that you're not setting the content type
anywhere. The content type is set as a HTTP HEADER in the response. The
META tag you're showing is not sent in the HTTP header. It is content (I
am not sure what it is supposed to do BTW).

Can you try to set the content type in the first line of your testXXX():
