    Issue by running a SeamTest

    michel petrovic Newbie

      I am developing a Web project with seam 2.1 which is available at
      I have created a SeamTest for testing a specific web page:


      Toe test it I have installed TestNG under eclipse.
      Then I have created a debug configuration under testNG to select the test class BaseStatusListPageTest and the method testConnection.

      By trying to debug it I get the following errors. Could you please help me to set up correctly the test?

          Seems to be the java 6 array classloading issue.
          Try to run with command line:

            Hi Heri,
            First of all many thanks for your feedback. I am currently using java version 1.6.0_20.
            I have the feeling that the issue is much more related to the way I am setting up the eclipse testNG to run the specified test above.
            Do you know if there is somewhere a video showing how to test a user interface by using testNG under eclipse.
            I have bough the book Seam in Action from Dan Allen but by reading the section how to create a SeamTest I don't find any explanation showing how to configure it properly under eclipse.
            I am a little bit frustrated because my project is running perfectly and I want to consolidate it by putting some user interface tests which I am not able to see them running under my eclipse environment.
            Best Regards

              I'm not an expert at all, and do not know any videos about seam. I had the same problem when I tried to run my first NG test which could be solved by the mentioned command line.

              The cited exception is typically for this issue:

              java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: [Ljava.lang.Class;

              Try to run your NG test with the commandline:


              and you should go fine.

                Hi Henri,

                I tried it but it didn't work.

                  Hi Henry,
                  finally I got it running. For sure I had to add the options you mentioned above but my most important issue was the way I have generated the project. Initially I used JBossTools under eclipse to create the project. After some investigation I decided to recreate the project structure by using seam-gen: the folders structure is completely different and it is appropriated to run the SeamTest.
                  Many thanks for your help.
