Subject:    StrutsTestCase configuration

Hi All

I'm having some problems with the StrutsTestCase. I believe it is
OK and all appropriate JARS (cactus etc) added to my WEB-INF/lib dir. The
test runs but always throws the exception shown below:

java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException: String index out of range: -1
 at java.lang.String.substring(





Any idea what might be missing from my configuration?
