Hi Nicole,

I think you misunderstand the purpose of Cactus.
Your test will always be executed in the server side.
This means that the testXXX methods are executed on the
server side. You can, however, execute two methods - beginXXX and endXXX
on the client side. This means the execution flow would be this:

beginXXX()  - >client side

startUp() -> serverside
testXXX() -> serverside
tearDown() ->serverside

endXXX() -> client side.

If you see the documentation of the WebRequest (the one you use in
beginXXX methods) there is no set-up for a caller principal. You can,
setup an Authentication object.

HTH, Petar.
