    JSFUnit issue - EJB not getting injected into servlet being tested

    Kiran Srinivasa Newbie

      In my application I have an EntryServlet which loads default data and sets up the security based on the logged in user id. This servlet is using EJB's through dependency injection. It works fine when I execute it as a normal web application but when I try to test the application using JSFUnit the ejb reference in the servlet is not injected and is null.

      I need to invoke the EntryServlet before setting up the JSF session since it loads the data required in the jsf pages. I am calling it as follows

      JSFUnit test code

      public class VisitingScholarNewRequestTest extends org.apache.cactus.ServletTestCase {

      public static Test suite() { 
         return new TestSuite( VisitingScholarNewRequestTest.class ); 
      public void testSaveAsDraft() throws ServletException,IOException { 
          //Calling EntryServlet 
          JSFUnitEntryServlet entryServlet = new JSFUnitEntryServlet(); 
          entryServlet.doPost(request,response); -- this is giving an error. 
          // Send an HTTP request for the initial page 
          JSFSession jsfSession = new JSFSession("/faces/cardrequestcreate.xhtml"); 
          // A JSFClientSession emulates the browser and lets you test HTML 
          JSFClientSession client = jsfSession.getJSFClientSession(); 
          // A JSFServerSession gives you access to JSF state       
          JSFServerSession server = jsfSession.getJSFServerSession(); 
          System.out.println("current view id :"+server.getCurrentViewID()); 
          // Test navigation to initial viewID 
          assertEquals("/cardrequestcreate.xhtml", server.getCurrentViewID()); 

      EntryServlet code

      public class JSFUnitEntryServlet extends HttpServlet { @EJB private MasterDataLocal masterDataFacade;

      public void doGet(HttpServletRequest request, 
                        HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, 
                                                             IOException { 
      public void doPost(HttpServletRequest request, 
                         HttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException, 
                                                              IOException { 
          String netId = ""; 
          try { 
              netId = (String)request.getAttribute("netid"); 
              //Establish the portal connection for this user 
              masterDataFacade.reinstateUser(netId); -- The test is failing with a null pointer exception here. 

      As I mentioned earlier When I execute the application in the browser it works fine and the EJB is injected in the EntryServlet, but it is not getting injected when I run the JSFUnit test suite. For some reason the servlet is not getting executed in the container. Please help in this regard.Any help will be greatly appreciated
