Hi, Vincent

Thank you very much for your reply.
I understood the key point of how to apply a patch.

And personally I believe that more people will vote for this new feature
it indeed is a useful function.

In order to apply Marc's patch to Maven-Cactus Plugin 1.7,
I read it carefully and made the following modifications on the file
1) In order to run the goal 'test-war-in-ear' when running goal
'cactus:test' or goal 'site' etc, I added the following code into
     the goal 'cactus:test'.
    At the same time, a new property 'cactus.is.war-in-ear' is introduced,
     can be set in the maven project' property file (project.properties).
        <goal name="cactus:test" description="Run all Cactus tests"
              JasonHuang: for the case when testing a war in a ear file.
          <j:when test="${context.getVariable('cactus.is.war-in-ear') ==
            <attainGoal name="cactus:test-war-in-ear"/>

2) In the Marc's patch,  the goal 'cactus:test-war-in-ear' uses the
'ant:batchtest task' to run the cactus testcases.
    However, it seems this does not work well.
    So, I copied some code from the goal 'cactus:test-ear' and used the
'cactus:scanner' to run them.

Then , it (goal: test-war-in-ear) works very well.

I hope this will help for other people.

Hi Jason,

This is my fault. I wanted to apply Marc's patch (and it's still in my
inbox) but unfortunately I've been too busy on other things and I've not
found the time to dig into this issue and apply the patch.

What we need in Cactus land is more committers understand Cactus and can
apply the good patches (and can reject the less good ones when there are
valid reasons).

Personally I'd love to have Marc as a committer. We had started some
discussion on this some time back. I'll contact Marc to see whether he's
still keen on becoming a Cactus committer. Then we'll be able to start a

The problem we have in Cactus land is that most of the committers have had
some interest at a given point in the past but have stopped being active
after some time (this is also true for me even though I try my best to
continue supporting Cactus). I guess this is true when projects become
mature. However, there's still a lot of things to do and improve (including
the development of Cactus2, the Cargo refactoring, etc).

The main issue with applying a patch is that to apply it you need to
understand it so that later on when someone asks a question about it, finds
a bug, asks for an improvement, etc you are able to answer (there's no
guarantee that the contributor will provide these answers).
