I have been using TestComplete for around 8 months, and have achieved great success with our Delphi application. It is a great application.
Recently I was changed from our Delphi project to our Java project. I have had some issues that I have wanted to run by some of you and see if you have seen them as well, or if we are unique.
We run our Java application through the MSHTA (IE). After a while of the automation running, the memory starts to leak or run out or something, and tests that pass when run individually will start to fail. We can run all of our tests one at a time. But if we have testcomplete due a test run and run all of them, it bogs down after a while and the results are unreliable.
Have any of you worked with a Java application, running through MSHTA? Whether it was successful or not, I am interested to find out if we are the first to try this with TestComplete. Please contact us, as we would be interested in consulting with you, and possibly using you as an external consultant to get our automation effort for this new program up and going.
Which Java lib/JRE are you using? I'd be worried that for some reason your "leaking" is actually a situation where either the JRE is old and fractured, or it may be MS Windows version of Java (not Sun's version). Just sayin' if it's to be Java, I go with the one from Sun first ... just me and is IMFC (is my first choice)...
I'm not an expert, have messed around with MSHTA, and then dumped it ... fear got the better of me.
I'll keep up on this thread as well - it might be something that comes up with the product I am testing right now.
