Subject RE: [ANN] Cactus 1.5-rc1 has been released
Date Mon, 27 Oct 2003 17:01:17 GMT
Hi Larry,

I had made a mistake and put the release files on archive.apache.org
instead of www.apache.org (which is mirrored). Sorry about that. It
should be fixed now (it may take some time before the files are mirrored
but at least you can get them from www.apache.org).

Thanks 
-Vincent

> The main focus for version 1.5-rc1 was on usability. We had several
user

> Main new features
> -----------------
> 
> The following main features have been added since Cactus 1.4.1:
> * Added support for begin()/end() that are run before and after each
>   test on the client side (mirrors setUp()/tearDown() which are run
>   before and after each test on the server side).
> * Special Jetty integration to automatically start Jetty when
executing
>   a test suite
> * Added support for Form-based authentication
> * Added support for i8n
> * Added new JspTagLifecycle class to help unit test taglibs
> * Added support for JBoss in Ant integration
> * Added support for server-side XSLT when running Cactus tests from a
>   browser
> * New Ant integration (<cactifywar> and <cactus> Ant tasks). Note that
>   version 1.5-rc1 has added support for WebLogic 7.x as compared to
>   version 1.5-beta1.
> * Added ability to run pure JUnit tests seamlessly on the server side
> * Lots of other new features. For a full feature list, see
>   http://jakarta.apache.org/cactus/features.html

> 
> Known limitations and bugs:
> ---------------------------
> 
> * Support for WebLogic 6.x has not been tested. This is because BEA is
>   no longer providing a download for WebLogic 6.x (unless you're a BEA
>   customer).
> * [Bug 21484] "ClassCastException when casting
WebAppRequestDispatcher"
> * [Bug 23978] "Cactus doesn't properly integrate w/HttpUnit. External
>   Javascript generates NullPointerException". Note that this bug has
not
> 
>   been verified yet and may not be a bug (the js.jar may simply have
> been
>   missing from the bug reporter's classpath).
> * [Bug 21237] "CactifyWarTask duplicates init-param lines in existing
>   web.xml servlet tag".
> * [Bug 17077] "Code page problems under WebSphere z/OS".
> * [Bug 23653] "CactifyWar task throws OutOfMemory Error with large WAR
>   file".
> * [Bug 23854] "Clustered servlet test results are not accurately
> reported".
> * [Bug 17933] "FormAuthentication assumes "localhost" when adding
> cookies".
> * [Bug 24054] "Sometimes, JBoss is stopped before it has finished
> starting".
> * [Bug 24072] "Failure to start jetty prevents subsequent jetty tests
> from
>   running".
> * Some binary incompatiblity was introduced by the refactoring of the
>   XXXTestCase class hierarchy. Whereas it was previously inheriting
from
> 
>   AbstractWebTestCase and AbstractTestCase, it is now simply
inheriting
>   from JUnit TestCase. Thus all non-public API are now not visible
from
>   users (as they should be). If you had some framework compiled with
>   Cactus 1.4.1 and using some methods from AbstractWebTestCase or
>   AbstractTestCase, you'll need to recompile it with Cactus 1.5-rc1 or
>   you might get a NoClassDefFoundError exception. We'll be more
careful
> in
>   the future.
