Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *
    * Users of GH Tester and Rational Integration Tester (prior to *
    * 8.0.1) who are generating and running ANT scripts.           *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * The various system properties set up in the RunTests.ini     *
    * file that are used to initialise the Java runtime and Tester *
    * are not copied into the ANT script.  This means that when    *
    * the ANT script runs Tester the required system properties    *
    * are not initialised and various functions will fail to       *
    * operate correctly.  This includes, but is not limited to,    *
    * the generation of reports.                                   *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * Upgrade to Rational Integration Tester 8.0.1 or later.       *
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • This problem was resolved in Rational Integration Tester 8.0.1
    (and later versions).  In these versions generated ANT scripts
    will pass both the properties from the AppProperties block and
    those specified in the RunTests.ini file as arguments when
    launching. The AppProperties will take preference over the .ini
    ones. This means that the http bind address and everything else
    specified by Library Manager will be available when run through
    ANT.
