Subject RE: HtmlUnit Integration
Date Sat, 22 Feb 2003 11:40:43 GMT
Hi Vishal,

Cactus does not provide any integration with HtmlUnit. However, we're
open to suggestions and we love patches! :-)

Thanks
-Vincent

Note: Unfortunately, I don't know HtmlUnit myself so I'm unable to
comment on the easiness of a Cactus/HtmlUnit integration. Maybe someone
else knows?
