Subject RE: Cactus tutorial needs updating
Date Wed, 10 Nov 2010 21:14:08 GMT
OK, so I got Tomcat 5.5.31, copied all the Cactus JARs to Tomcat's 
common/lib directory, then followed the tutorial instructions. I set up a 
web app as directed, with the following directory structure under webapps:

├──test
│  └──WEB_INF
│     └──classes

The classes directory has:

SampleServlet.class      TestSampleServlet.class

However, when I try to browse to 
http://localhost:8080/test/ServletTestRunner?suite=TestSampleServlet, I 
get this error. Is there something else I need to do in order to enable 
Tomcat to find the class? Should the class be in a different place than 
the test/WEB-INF/classes directory?

HTTP Status 500 -

Jim-

Can't speak officially, but I use Cactus 1.8.1 with Tomcat 5.5.30 (which
does still have the common/lib structure).  I don't think you need any
of those jars in Tomcat itself, although you probably need to place them
in the cactified-war.  In the setup I use, I only see aspectjrt (but we
do some AspectJ stuff) and commons-logging (necessary, as we want Tomcat
to use Log4J for its own logs) from the list you provided.  However,
commons-discovery, commons-httpclient, cargo, cactus, jasper and junit
are in most of the cactified wars we operate on.

Good Luck-
-Jeff

P.S. Anyone successful at taking Cactus to Tomcat 7 yet?  Pretty sure
it's impossible due to cactus's use of Cargo 1.0B2 (short of recompiling
Cactus), but just curious.

Subject: Cactus tutorial needs updating

The Cactus tutorial needs to be updated. It talks about Tomcat 4 (which
you can't even get anymore). The real issue, though, is it says this:

----------------------------
Copy the following jars to [tomcat-root]/common/lib: 
cactus.jar
commons-httpclient.jar
commons-logging.jar
junit.jar
aspectjrt.jar
----------------------------

First, there is no common/lib directory in Tomcat 6, and second, those
JARs do not exist in the Cactus 1.8.1 distribution. Here are the JARs
that are there now:

aspectjrt-1.5.3.jar
cactus.core.framework.uberjar.javaEE.14-1.8.1.jar
cactus.integration.ant-1.8.1.jar
cactus.integration.shared.api-1.8.1.jar
cargo-ant-1.0-beta-2.jar
cargo-core-container-jonas-1.0-beta-2.jar
cargo-core-uberjar-1.0-beta-2.jar
commons-discovery-0.4.jar
commons-httpclient-3.1.jar
commons-logging-1.1.jar
geronimo-ejb_2.1_spec-1.1.jar
geronimo-j2ee-management_1.0_spec-1.1.jar
httpunit-1.6.jar
jasper-compiler-5.5.9.jar
jasper-runtime-5.5.9.jar
junit-3.8.2.jar
mx4j-3.0.2.jar
mx4j-remote-3.0.2.jar
nekohtml-1.9.6.jar
org.mortbay.jetty-5.1.9.jar
servlet-api-2.4.jar

I can guess the right JARs to use for everything but "cactus.jar". Can
someone please explain what JARs are needed for Cactus now, and where
they should go?
