StrutsTestCase and Tokens

How does one get around the usage of Struts tokens when unit testing using StrutsTestCase? If the action class under tests for duplicate submissions using tokens,

if(isTokenValid(request) == false) {
// don't perform the action and route the user
// to an appropriate location

it'll always fail. This is because, the token is set in the request by the tag and of course when running a StrutsTestCase, the JSP isn't involved.

The application functions correctly, however, I cannot run my unit tests :(

  1. add the following before your test :

    addRequestParameter(Constants.TOKEN_KEY, "testToken");

    getSession().setAttribute(Globals.TRANSACTION_TOKEN_KEY, "testToken");
