Now I'm working with struts, and I want to test my action class, but I need to mock a HttpRequest object, a HttpResponse object, a ActionForm object, and a ActionMapping object, it's too difficult for me to test. Is there anything more easy?

I dunno... let's go over to the Struts forum and ask over there (I'll move this thread for you.)

What do you mean by mock? Why not just download tomcat and use it to test your action?

The Apache Cactus is a test framework made specifically for testing Web applications. It builds on JUnit and works great for unit testing Struts applications.
