Hi,

I have searched google but I can not find any good links to papers or tutorials on using Junit to test EJBs and Servlets.

Thanks for any help.

Have found a good link about cactus that covers this.

Cactus is a little more complex compared to JUnit.

It is sure the testing framework for in-container testing.

If you want simplicity you can continue with Junit + out-of-container testing of your servlets and EJBs.

Tony,
First thing is to move as much logic out of the servlets/EJBs as possible. In an EJB, it is often possible to get all the logic out so there is nothing left to test.

For servlets, Mock Objects are useful (easymock, jmock, ...) You can test passing specific parameters in the servlet and check how your application responds.

Once you have done some unit testing, Cactus is good for integration testing.

MockEJB should also be useful for testing your EJB components.

Here is a list of multiple solutions for mock testing:
mock frameworks.

Hope it helps.
