Hi - I use eclipse to run this test case and point "WEB-INF" folder for classpath and I still get the error message below. could you please help me this issue? Thanks

junit 3.8.2. jar
jdk 1.6
Strut-config is located at WebRoot/WEB-INF folder.

MY TEST CLASS IS

package com.citi.cmb.gbnp.action;

import servletunit.struts.MockStrutsTestCase;
import com.orbitech.cash.xbnp.vo.MCPMultiTierVO;


public class MCPDispatchActionTest extends MockStrutsTestCase {

MCPMultiTierVO mcpMultiTierVO;
public MCPDispatchActionTest(String name) {
super(name);
}

protected void setUp() throws Exception {
super.setUp();
mcpMultiTierVO =new MCPMultiTierVO();
mcpMultiTierVO.setHeaderAccountNumber("1000");
mcpMultiTierVO.setStructID("1010");
mcpMultiTierVO.setSturctName("xyz");

}

protected void tearDown() throws Exception {
}
public void test() {


setConfigFile("/WEB-INF/struts-config.xml");
setRequestPathInfo("/MCPAction");
actionPerform();
}
}

ERROR IS


servletunit.struts.ExceptionDuringTestError: A NullPointerException was thrown. This may indicate an error in your ActionForm, or it may indicate that the Struts ActionServlet was unable to find struts config file. TestCase is running from D:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\webapps\xbnp directory. Context directory has not been set. Try calling setContextDirectory() with a relative or absolute path. struts config file must be found under the context directory, the directory the test case is running from, or in the classpath.
