Cactus question

Hi all,
I'm learning how to test with cactus and got a question.
To test my servlet I need to call it's service methods several times with different parameters. Smth like this:
public void testMyServlet() {
MyServlet myServlet = new MyServlet();
myServlet.service(request, response);
//set request params
myServlet.service(request, response);
But I can't find how I can reassign parameters once given to the request in the beginXXX() method.
Any ideas?

Best Regards,<br />Serge

I don't think you can reassign the parameters, but you don't need to. Since you can have a separate beginXXX method for each testXXX method, you can set the parameters you want in each beginXXX. If you find a test needs more than one set of parameters, you can refactor it into two tests.
