I am testing a very busy GIS environment, using the newest TestComplete. When the script reaches a certain point, it hangs. TestComplete cannot recover from this state, and its process must be terminated, using the TaskMgr. No TestComplete Logging is written to file during this hang. I am not sure if this is caused by a script flaw, TestComplete buffer I/O limit, or a LAN/OS issue. When I break the script into two pieces, each piece runs successfully. My question is, is there a method to run scripts as descrete processes, that can run to completion, end, and return all resources to the OS, such that I will be able to work around these hangs until its cause(s) can be determined? Should I consider TestExecute on the same machine as TestComplete?
Re: Workaround for TestComplete hang, cause unknown.
The issue might be related to an insufficient amount of free memory. I recommend that you split your large test into multiple test items. When you do this, TestComplete will flush the test log for each of your test items to your hard drive after a test item's execution is over and the memory consumption will be decreased. Using TestExecute instead of TestComplete to run your tests is a good idea too since this application consumes less memory.
