hello Anilyitta
Why dont you use JUnit for testing your Web Applications
JUnit is an open source Java testing framework used to write and run repeatable tests. It is an instance of the xUnit architecture for unit testing frameworks.

JUnit features include:
Assertions for testing expected results
Test fixtures for sharing common test data
Test suites for easily organizing and running tests
Graphical and textual test runners

>>Why dont you use JUnit for testing your Web Applications
JUnit cannot be used for testing web applications. it cannot provide the Web container environment.
so Cactus is the best option and if u have struts in your presentation layer then u can test using Struts Test Case which is a subset of JUnit

I have struts in my application. So can I use both Strutstestcase and cactus?

if u r having struts then Struts Test Case is built on JUnit and Cactus.
so u can download Struts Test case and use it. no need to have Cactus seperately
