Unit testing of servlet MVC-1 oriented java code

I am working with a large application that uses older 'Servlet'
oriented style of development.  Basically, everything piece is a
servlet or connected to some kind of filter.

We could rewrite so that all the 'request.getParameter' and other
servlet calls are far from the actual business logic but it isnt and I
can't change it.

I tried junit cactus but I have redirects (302? 303) responses and
cactus didnt like that. Actually httpunit didnt like redirects.

I was going to try httpunit, but (see above) httpunit doesnt like

Anybody have any ideas?

Toss httpunit? I think you are pretty much stuck with system testing when everything is so stuck together.

I don't beleive that it does not handle redirects.  It says it does on the homepage:

"Written in Java, HttpUnit emulates the relevant portions of browser behavior, including form submission, JavaScript, basic http authentication, cookies and automatic page redirection"

Must have been an older version.
