Error description

  • Message field validation is being checked when the parent
    validation is disabled.
    This behaviour is different from that with Green Hat Software GH
    Tester.
    
    STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
    
    1. Create an XML message with parents and children.
    2. Set Validate Element Children on a child node to off.
    3. Enable validation on the text node below.
    4. Set the Value tab to contain one value and the Validate tab
    to contain another value.
    5. Run the test.
    
    EXPECTED RESULTS:
    
    The test passes.
    
    ACTUAL RESULTS:
    
    The test fails.
    
    WORKAROUND:
    
    Use the Message Editor to disable validation on this field.

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *
    * All users of Rational Integration Tester                     *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * In early versions of GH Tester 5.4 (e.g. the original        *
    * release) Publish Validation did not work correctly.  This    *
    * was fixed and later versions of GH Tester (i.e. 5.4.0.32) do *
    * correctly validate messages as they are published.           *
    *                                                              *
    * Users who are upgrading from GH Tester to Rational           *
    * Integration may therefore see a change in behaviour with     *
    * publish-time validation.                                     *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • The behaviour being exhibited by the current version of Rational
    Integration Tester is correct.  The difference in behaviour is
    due to broken Publish Validation in early versions of GH Tester
    5.4.
