  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *
    * Users of RIT on the Linux platform who are iterating over    *
    * Excel based Tests Data Sets in tests.                        *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * The problem can be demonstrated using the following steps on *
    * a Linux platform                                             *
    *                                                              *
    * 1. Create an Excel test dataset (probably on a Windows       *
    * machine and then copied to Linux)                            *
    * 2. Create a test that iterates through the testdata          *
    * 3. Run the test                                              *
    *                                                              *
    * EXPECTED RESULT:                                             *
    *                                                              *
    * The test data is retrieved and the test executes correctly   *
    *                                                              *
    * ACTUAL RESULT:                                               *
    *                                                              *
    * The test fails to run and gives "Compilation Failed" error.  *
    * The JVM console displays the following error:                *
    *                                                              *
