Hello everyone

This is my first time in these forums

I am looking at different possibilites for testing J2EE applications and I do not quite understand the difference between JUnitEE and Cactus.

I gathered from the documentation that

- JUnitEE simply provides a servlet (JUnitEETestServlet) which runs the test case on the server-side. This servlet also offers an HTML interface.

- Cactus offers more, but what exactly?

I will come back when I find out more ... but thanks anyway for any hints you can give me.
