Error description

  • You have done a recording of a database. Clicking the
    database recorded events is taking a huge amount of time to
    display the details. The tool appears to hang for a long time
    and you
    are unable to create a test from those events.
    This happened when the database transport is set to an IP
    that is not mapped to a hostname. Rational Integration Tester
    then spent a lot of
    time trying to resolve the IP to a hostname.
    A workaround consists of resolving the IP address to a hostname
    in Rational Integration Tester's
    hosts file.

    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *
    * All users of Rational Integration Tester who record JDBC     *

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * f a user recorded JDBC events and then clicked on those      *
    * recorded events in the Recording Studio perspective,         *
    * Rational Integration Tester could appear to hang.  This was  *
    * caused by Rational Integration Tester attempting to resolve  *
    * or contact the host that the events were originally recorded *
    * from.  If the host was not accessible, extremely long delays *
    * would occur, leading the user to believe that the            *
    * application had hung.                                        *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *

Problem conclusion

  • A fix for this issue was provided in version 8.7.0.1 of Rational
    Integration Tester. Users should no longer experience these
    delays.
