    Passing Data From Testplan

    I was wondering if anyone has encountered the following problem:

    In my testplans I pass data to testcases via the testdata: keyword. If I make a change to the data being passed in and re-compile the .pln file, when the I run the testcase, the updated data is not passed. I can solve the problem by closing and reopening the plan file. Although it is a pain for me to do this, I can deal with it. My concern is when I turn the scripts over to the QC Analysts who run them.

    If anyone has had to deal with this before, or has any comments, it would be appreciated.

    Re: Passing Data From Testplan

    I've only seen this kind of scenario if your date / time are not accurate, and you change the data. SilkTest does not recompile the object code, so you don't see your change.

    This happened to me during debug of a time sensitive test scenario. To get the recompile, I have to close SilkTest, fix my date / time to today's date / time, then open SilkTest and recompile.

    Writing a crawler to delete the object code would be nice, using BATCH. Instead, I make all my tests at cleanup time reset the date / time to today's date / time with a synchronization utility. Keeps the metrics accurate as well, at least for test execution time.
