Error description

  • When running a test suite with multiple iterations using an
    evaluate function test step with a tag as one of the parameters,
    the heading of the report for that section does not always match
    the actual evaluated function.  This does not affect the
    performance or accuracy of the tests, just the report section
    header.  For example, a test step that may have something like
    eq(%%tagOne%%, 0) with test data supplying different
    numbermerical values to %%tagOne%%, may end up report a section
    of the report with a heading of eq(0,0) but the step will fail
    with an actual evaluation of eq(1,0).

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * A problem exists in Rational Integration Tester that means   *
    * if a test executes quickly and the technical description of  *
    * test actions contain tags then, if the tag values change     *
    * faster than the results can be written to the database the   *
    * stored technical descriptions may have the wrong values.     *
    * This is because the tag value at the time-of-write is used   *
    * rather than the tag value at the time-of-execution.          *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * Upgrade to Rational Integration Tester 8.5.1                 *
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • This problem has been resolved in Rational Integration Tester
    8.5.1.  The stored technical description will contain the tag
    value at the time of execution.
