If you download jsf1.1_02fcs-src, inside the zip file they extend
JspTestCase and ServletTestCase.


I'm getting ready to start testing JSF myself and I wonder if anyone has
used these classes?

I don't know what plans the Cactus team has, but you might want to look
Shale's test package:

Nightly builds are available:

This is where I'm still confused-- by the time it gets to the browser,
"just" HTML and JavaScript.  I don't see why testing the output of a JSP
page that had JSF tags in it is different from testing one that had,
Struts tags.  It's still <input type="text" ...> in the browser, right?

FWIW there are some examples of testing JSF JSP pages in Shale.  Look in
src/systest in the use-cases section.  They are, however, HtmlUnit and
current version of the Cactus Maven plugin wouldn't run them.  I did see
HtmlUnit support get added to Cactus recently, so I'm hopeful.

I'd suggest that you ask about testing JSF apps on the MyFaces list.
if you're using a different implementation, they are a helpful bunch. :)
And if you have questions about Shale, come join us on the Struts user
