    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * If you run a test which attempts to publish a FIX message to *
    * a server which has become unresponsive, that test will not   *
    * terminate unless you manually cancel it.                     *

    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *

Problem conclusion

  • In Rational Integration Tester 8.5.1.1 the FIX transport
    configuration allows the user to express a timeout to be used
    when attempting to publish a message.  The default value for new
    transports is 15 seconds, existing transports will have no
    timeout set.
