Subject Re: cactus.properties in classpath, cactus.contextURL
Date Wed, 01 Jan 2003 21:53:47 GMT
Some extra information.

I've created a ServletTest.java (not using Cactus or Junit...) in the same directory as SampleServletTest.java.
ServletTest.java is basically a hollow servlet that merely prints out the current value (if
any) of the
cactus.contextURL. (System.getProperty( "cactus.contextURL").

Even though I *do* have a cactus.properties file in the JVM classpath ($TOMCAT/common/classes)
which contains, as
specified in last posting, a cactus.contextURL of "http://host.domain.com:8080/myWebApp/",
nevertheless the
ServletTest.java displays the following value:

  cactus.contextURL: null

Which leads me to conclude that cactus.properties file is NOT being picked up on.

Any ideas where I should be putting the cactus.properties file for server side testing with
