Error description

  • Parallel tests using the Run Command action do not always
    complete
    
    STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
    
    1. Create a test with a Run Command step.
        The external command should be one that runs for a long
    time, for example 1 minute.
    
    2. Create a test with a Run Command step.
        The external command should be one that completes after a
    short time, for example 2 seconds.
    
    3. Create a test suite to run the two tests.
        Configure the tests to run in parallel.
    
    4. Execute the suite.
    
    
    EXPECTED RESULTS:
    
    The short test completes with Pass or Fail status.
    
    You can stop the suite and terminate the remaining test.
    
    
    ACTUAL RESULTS:
    
    The short test remains at Running status.
    
    You are unable to stop the suite.
    You must terminate the external program in order to stop the
    suite.
    
    WORKAROUND:
    None

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * When running a test suite, if any of the tests within the    *
    * suite contain Run Command actions, then the test execution   *
    * can fail to complete. This is particularly likely to occur   *
    * if the command executed by the Run Command action takes a    *
    * long time to complete.                                       *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * Upgrade to Rational Integration Tester version 8.5.1.1, or   *
    * above.                                                       *
