Subject Can Struts Junit plugin be used to test the redirect result of an action
Date Wed, 21 Sep 2011 15:25:44 GMT
I am using the Struts Junit plugin
( ), extending the
StrutsSpringTestCase for a regression test of an action in my application.

(Optional reading: 
Long story short on the problem, the action adds a record to a database
via hibernate. The result is a redirect to execute() of the same class,
whose prepare() populates a List<Record> object with all the records
available. For some reason, the prepare fires as it should, but returns
the old number of items. Only a refresh shows the page with the correct
results. For an odd reason, sleeping the thread before calling the dao's
code that retrieves the list for 1 second also makes the result to be
correctly updated.)

The action result is a redirectAction, that, well, redirects to another
action. The test doesn't call this second method, though.
Is it possible with this base test case to make it call the 2nd action?
