[opencms-dev] unit testing without DB (CmsJspBean)

Hi Martin,

I'd recommend to use Powermock. I once wrote testcases with it that covered CmsJspActionElements. Although you have to fiddle a little bit 
to mix in the right expectations and reactions on it: it is possible.


The classic approach: Look at the OpenCmsTestcase / the unit tests of OpenCms: They set up a temp db, import demo content and run against 
the cms shell.
