I'm trying to test my struts actions. I jUnit test all of my DAOs and I'm trying to keep the testing momentum going. When I run this line in my code:

setServletConfigFile("C:/apache/tomcat 5.5.7/webapps/xxx/WEB-INF/web.xml");

I get this error:

junit.framework.AssertionFailedError: Received an exception while loading web.xml - class java.lang.NullPointerException : null
at servletunit.struts.MockStrutsTestCase.setServletConfigFile(
at junit.framework.TestCase.runBare(
at junit.framework.TestResult$1.protect(
at junit.framework.TestResult.runProtected(
at junit.framework.TestSuite.runTest(
at org.eclipse.jdt.internal.junit.runner.RemoteTestRunner.runTests(
at org.eclipse.jdt.internal.junit.runner.RemoteTestRunner.main(

My web.xml works fine in my tomcat container. The file is there. When I taek the line of code out it says it can't find the web.xml.

I've been all over the forums, google, I've rtFm, and I'm just about out of ideas. Thanks for any help anyone can provide.
