Subject Re: Support for Convention-Plugin through the Junit-Plugin
Date Mon, 18 Mar 2013 15:22:28 GMT
I debugged a good while and figured out how it can be done, basically.

The trick is, you give it a special config:

    protected String getConfigPath() {
        return "struts-convention.xml";

This config above contains more or less everything which is also
contained in struts-plugin.xml of the convention plugin. Unfortunately
I didn't find a way to include the original file or how to use
"convention-default". It seems it isn't loaded and I need to push it
manually, which i did.

I could create an ViewAction which is then forwarded to
view-success.jsp, as desired.

One problem I face is now that it seems as view-success.jsp is not
rendered. When I read the output of this file its always "". I have no
idea why it's like that at the moment.
I looked into StrutsJUnit4TestCase (line 248) and it seems
struts-default.xml is always loaded. So I would expect there are all
components there to render it. I already tried ftl, which is used
often by teh other testcases, no success.

That said, besides the return value of executeAction is not useful,
this already works:

public class StrutsJUnit4ConventionTestCaseTest extends
StrutsJUnit4TestCase<ViewAction> {
ViewAction action = this.getAction();
// assert action members
