  We are using a commercial application that is buggy.   I am trying to 
test it to see if a new version is better or not than the current 
version, but I can't test the webapps because the class expects that 
some classes are already instantiated, as they are set in an application 
scope by a servlet or jsp page, and there are other classes set in a 
session scope by other jsp pages.

  When this is done, will cactus work, or will I need to write my own 
jsp page, instantiate the classes needed myself, then run the unit test, 
so that everything is set up for it?

  I have never thought of the difficulty of unit testing when using 
servlet contexts.

  Thank you for your response.
