Error description

  • Test actions added to a Message Case within a Message Switch
    cannot be saved.
    
    STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
    
    1. Create a test.
    2. Add a Message Switch action.
    3. Add a Message Case below the Message Switch.
    4. Add a Failure Path below the Message Case.
    5. Add a test action under the Failure Path.
    6. Save and exit the test.
    7. Re-open the test.
    
    
    EXPECTED RESULTS:
    
    The test should look the same as when it was saved.
    
    
    ACTUAL RESULTS:
    
    An additional empty Failure Path has appeared under the Message
    Switch.
    
    Attempts to move the test action under the new Failure Path are
    unsuccessful as it is lost after saving.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *
    * All Rational Integration Tester users.                       *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * If a user adds a failure path to a Message Switch > Message  *
    * Case, and then adds test actions into the failure path, then *
    * the test is not saved correctly.                             *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * Upgrade to Rational Integration Tester version 8.5.1.1.      *
    * Users with existing projects should follow the migration     *
    * advice from the 8.5.1.1 release notes:                       *
    *                                                              *
    * From version 8.5.1.1 all new failure path actions created    *
    * will operate correctly. However, projects containing         *
    * existing failure paths are corrupt. In order to be able to   *
    * save a failure path with sub-actions the tests will need to  *
    * be opened, existing failure paths (under message cases)      *
    * deleted and then saved and reopened before a new working     *
    * failure path can be added otherwise the new failure path or  *
    * the actions added will not be saved correctly.               *
