#318 Insufficient exception stack trace in ServletUnit

Paul Austin

In ServletClient.newResponse it creates a
HttpInternalErrorException with the exception, the
cause of the exception does not get written out to a
log file or stderr which makes it diffifult to find the
cause of exceptions that are configuration errors as
opposed to client servlet errrors

    Dear Paul,

    Thank you for your bug report. I think this was fixed for the upcoming 1.7 release with:
    If you feel that the fixes are not sufficient please supply a JUnit test case proving your point.

    Dear httpunit user!

    Thank you for your bug report. We appreciate the time and effort you are putting into this.

    Please supply a testcase with the expected result for the bug report that you are asking a solution for and we'll look into implementing it. For a start you might want to get the trunk version from the subversion repository (see https://sourceforge.net/svn/?group_id=6550\)
    and have a look at the source code of some of the more than 700 JUnit based testcase in there.

    If you do not use or have subversion tool you can still directly browse our test cases via:
    Looking into one or more of the Junit Java source files
    should give you a clue on what a proper testcase for httpunit looks like, often you will probably only have to "clone" an existing testcase and modify it slightly to your needs.

    When you are ready you might want to attach the testcase (and if you already have started implementing a solution for it it also the actual code) to the patch section of the sourceforge.net tracker for patches of the httpunit project at

    The main communication about further details of the development is via the httpunit developer mailinglist. You are most welcome to sign up via

    The httpunit developer team
