Error description

  • RAF 3.0.X fails to compare configuration files containing
    unknown XML characters
    
    For example, running the following action against a Portal
    environment will result in an import of unknown XML characters
    which can not be compared or diffed:
    
    rafw.sh -env test -cell dmgr -u cluster1 -i
    was_common_configure_resource_environment_providers
    
    The resulting XML Configuration file is attached
    (resourceEnvironment.xml)
    
    Simply running the same action in compare will fail with
    warnings
    
    rafw.sh -env test -cell dmgr -u cluster1 -r
    was_common_configure_resource_environment_providers
    
    Output will contain warnings which is defective since the import
    was just run and both Cluster config and RAF config should be
    identical.

    Rational Automation Framework 3.0.X fails to compare
    configuration files containing unknown XML characters
    

Problem conclusion

  • Tabs were being converted to spaces when we wrote out the
    XML file. Changes were made to write tabs instead.
