Test File Size Growing
Test files growing without significant changesOne of our team members posted the following to our team forum:
Increase in file size of the script.For instance,Cause_ServerTC.tst script's size was
58,260,864 bytes on December 2, 2010 11:56:11 AM
I am in process of making all the "Constrain request to WSDL" checked and noted the file size gone more than 60,000,000 bytes.i.e an increase of 2,000,000 bytes or 2 MB increase.(After all modifications it is 68,238,317 bytes)
Communication Type - 62,193,976 bytes (Before) 63,643,887 bytes (After)
These are tests which have only a few modifications and increase significantly in sieze. I have made the recommendation to split and reduce test size, but we need to understand what makes file size grow when tests, asserts, response saves, etc, are not being added to tests.
