Cactus is a simple test framework for unit testing server-side Java code (Servlets, EJBs, Tag libs, ...) from the Jakarta Project. The intent of Cactus is to lower the cost of writing tests for server-side code. It uses JUnit and extends it. Cactus implements an in-container strategy, meaning that tests are executed inside the container.

Project Status[edit]

The Jakarta Cactus project was retired on August 5, 2011.

The Jakarta Cactus project announced the new 1.8.1 version [1] on January 18, 2009. Version 1.8.1 still does not support JUnit 4.x, although a workaround of sorts is documented [2]. As of 1.8, Cactus uses Cargo for all server-related manipulation. As of 08/05/2011, cactus has been retired. http://jakarta.apache.org/cactus/mock_vs_cactus.html
