Can you provide more details (maybe show or attach an exeception stack trace
plus any relevant log messages, etc.), *including* details on how you ran the
JUnit tests (e.g., from Eclipse, from Maven, etc.)  I have run the JUnit tests
on Linux before from both Maven and Eclipse without any problems. I don't
think anyone runs them by default "in-container" as you put it. So whatever
you have encountered, it is something unusual.

BTW, there is one known problem...if you install ESAPI along a path
where one of the directories has a space in it. In that case, I think all
the JUnit tests fail.
