    JSF - Needs fixing

    Tim Evers Master

      Hi all,

      I've been trying to get JSF unit running for a while now and it seems basically impossible. This is mainly because the documentation is extremely poor on how to get it running.

      On the guide it states.


      Here are the minimum jars you will need in your WEB-INF/lib.

      * jboss-jsfunit-core-1.0-beta-1.jar
      * aspectjrt-1.2.1.jar
      * cactus-13-1.7.1.jar
      * httpunit-1.6.1.jar
      * junit-3.8.1.jar
      * jtidy-4aug2000r7-dev.jar


      This is so far from the truth and I have yet been able to get a single test to run because of jar dependencies which are NOT stated.

      The most obvious of course is cargo...funny seeings as your own ant example has it.

      But wait it only gets worse... once you do get a few of the missing jars in all I get are errors.

      like this:

      Would it be at all possible to have a working example or at least some documentation that actually reflects what needs to go on?

      Cause as it stands I just can't get jsfunit going

          Sorry you are having trouble. I'll take a closer look to make sure that the getting started guide reflects the current state of things. I don't know why you would need cargo unless you are deploying automatically during your build. You shouldn't need it if you are just running JSFUnit from the browser.

          There is a whole suite of examples that run from Maven. You can see how to run them from here:
          http://labs.jboss.com/jsfunit/building-jsfunit.html

          As for the JTidy problem, I haven't seen this myself and you are the first one to let me know if my suggestion helped or not. If you have a simple example that reproduces the problem, please attach it to this bug report:
          http://jira.jboss.com/jira/browse/JSFUNIT-65

          Regards,

          Stan

            Can you post a directory listing of WEB-INF/lib ?

                Ok....With some help of a colleague I have made progress...

                It seems as though you need to have xalan-2.4.1.jar on your classpath for jsfunit to run.

                Maybe the doco should be updated to show this. As even running the maven examples do not work in tomcat.

                  well, doing the above step made the examples work....but now i'm getting this when i try it in my own application.

                  *sigh*

                    Which JDK are you using? I have found that Sun's JDK 1.5 and 1.6 both use Xalan 2.6. Can you try with Xalan 2.6?

                      I had similar troubles running jsfunit with tomcat 4.1 (the jdk that tomcat referenced was java 1.6 however).

                      It told me I had missing xalan classes. These would have had to be set in the endorsed folder.

                      What also helped was just setting the tomcat4.1 to use the java 1.4 SDK. No more error messages since.

                      Anyhow, if you still get error messages with putting the newest xalan libs to the libs folder, try to use them in the endorsed folder. This may help.

                        Your wish is my command. I've created a wiki page where you can download a WAR based on the "Getting Started Guide".

                        The six jars listed really are the minimum required, but it depends on your container. If your container does not bundle JSF then you will need a few more than those.

                        Here is the new wiki page: http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/GettingStartedGuide

                          Thanks for your help stan.

                          Your comment about Xalan 2.6 actually proved to be the real issue.

                          I upgraded to Xalan 2.7 and everything seems to work the way it should now I think! At least....my initial test ran with succes :D YAY!

                          So maybe on the wiki you could make a note that if your using tomcat6 and running JDK 1.6 you need to include the xalan >= version 2.6 into your lib directory. (It doesn't have to be in endorsed just in your lib)

                          Now....just another quick question.

                          I have the following test (just learning how to use it)

                          public class JSFUnitTest extends org.apache.cactus.ServletTestCase {
                          
                           public static Test suite()
                           {
                           return new TestSuite( JSFUnitTest.class );
                           }
                          
                           public void testInitialPage() throws IOException, SAXException
                           {
                           // Send an HTTP request for the initial page
                           JSFClientSession client = new JSFClientSession("/web/index.jsf");
                          
                           // A JSFServerSession gives you access to JSF state
                           JSFServerSession server = new JSFServerSession(client);
                          
                           // Test navigation to initial viewID
                           assertEquals("/web/index.xhtml", server.getCurrentViewID());
                          
                           }
                          }
                          


                          Why is it that I navigate to /web/index.jsf that I have to assert that my view is /web/index.xhtml.

                          Why can't I assert that my view is the jsf page?

                          If this is just how it works so be it.....but just seems a tad weird :)

                            Thanks for the suggestion. I'll post a note about Xalan somewhere that people can see it.

                            Would you mind posting new questions as a separate thread? It's a good question and I think others are more likely to see it and benefit from it if it is in a new thread.

                              It's Httpunit and jtidy compatible issue. jitdy has remove the method setCharEncoding(String encoding) and add setInputEncoding() and setOutputEncoding()
