What is a "fine-grained startup configuration"?

If it is what I think it is, almost all supported containers support custom
configurations (as specified on
http://jakarta.apache.org/cactus/integration/ant/task_cactus.html). For
jboss3x, that would be the "config" attribute.

Note that Cactus 1.7dev supports more option for jboss3x (see

XXX (which is the port) can be modified using the "port" attribute. YYYY
(which is the servlet context) is the war name usually (or the context
defined in jboss-web.xml).

Yep, it's:

"http://localhost:" + containers[i].getPort() + "/" 
   + thisDeployable.getTestContext())

Nope. I would like to understand what is your use case.

What URL would you like Cactus to use instead?
