Verifications points ( both Visible tree or Selected ) captured on Flex tree controls with Rational Functional Tester versions earlier than 8.5 fail to play back successfully in version 8.5.
In Rational Functional Tester version 8.5, support for nodes whose root node is not visible has been added. Due to this, the verification points in case of such nodes differ from those in earlier Rational Functional Tester versions.
Resolving the problem
To ensure that verification points captured in Rational Functional Tester versions prior to 8.5 continue to work as they do in earlier versions, set the following flag to true in the ivory.properties file in the Rational Functional Tester installation / bin directory:
Setting the flag shown above to true will make verification points pass for scripts recorded in Rational Functional Tester versions earlier than 8.5. If you are using version 8.5, ensure that you capture all new verification points on the Flex tree control with the flag set to the default value, that is, false.
Note that because the selected tree path in case of Flex tree controls points to visible selected tree path, the selected node should be visible when you capture the verification point.
