Eclipse Flash Demos

I stumbled upon a bunch of Eclipse Viewlets via ::Manageability::. They're basically Flash demo's of how Eclipse is better than Visual Studio .NET. If I only had the time to actually watch them.

[ANNOUNCE] StrutsTestCase v1.9 Released

StrutsTestCase v1.9 improves support for Struts 1.1b2 (including support for testing Tiles and sub-applications), provides several requested enhancements, and fixes many reported defects.

 The project home page can be found here:

 Notes for this release can be found here:

I upgraded my current project to use Cactus 1.4.1 and StrutsTestCase 1.9 this morning - and everything works great! I had to add :80 to a few URLs and add ServletRedirector?Cactus_Service=RUN_TEST to my testURL for runservertests, but that was it. I've posted a message to the Cactus User list asking why these changes were necessary. If I was really smart, I'd write a whole bunch of HttpUnit and Cactus tests for Roller before integrating Tiles. Probably save me a whole bunch of time in the end - if I could only get that through to my brain.

Tomcat Security Updates.

If you're using Tomcat 4.0.4 or Tomcat 4.1.10 - you might want to upgrade to 4.0.5 or 4.1.12.

A security vulnerability has been confirmed to exist in all Apache Tomcat 4.x versions (including Tomcat 4.0.4 and Tomcat 4.1.10), which allows to use a specially crafted URL to return the unprocessed source of a JSP page, or under special circumstances a static resource which would otherwise have been protected by security constraint, without the need of being properly authenticated.
