Subject Re: Defining ant target to run junit tests using dbunit
Date Tue, 20 May 2008 19:20:48 GMT

I appreciate both attempts to help.
I had already viewed that other web page and tried to follow it.  It doesn't
provide quite enough
detail for me.

I did try using some of the sample code provided.  I was able to eliminate
the error about not
finding the oracle driver.  But now when I try to include a junit taskdef, I
get a classpath error that
a class needed by JUnitTask (TestListener) is not found.  As far as I can
tell, it is on the classpath, so no
idea what this all about.  I tried a couple ways of including it in the
classpath within the build.xml file.

Sure would be nice if someone had a sample who had also written junit tests
using dbunit for a web app
using Hibernate and Oracle.  I simply cannot get this to work;very
