Use of Aggregate Data Sources in SOAtest: MAX nr of fields combined?
Currently I am building a project in SOAtest (188.8.131.52) in which I would like to combine some internal table data sources into an aggregate DS for use in XML Assertors to validate the contents of several DB tables. I have a project with several tst's underneath. I declare the DS on project level (not as Global DS!)
Constructing the Aggregate DS is not the problem. With Show Columns I can see all the fields of the separate tables, having unique labels. OK.
However when I attach the aggregate DS to an XML assertor to parametrize the expected value, I only get up to 3 combined tables, also after refreshing the tst and project. Having a 4th table added to the aggregate the expected value dropdown does not show all the variables.
So I wonder is there a MAX on either the number of fields in the expected value dropdown or in the combining of an aggregate DS.
Will Excel DS work better in this case?
Or might this be a performance issue, that it takes a long time to have the aggregate process and handle all the fields of the separate tables?
Thanks in advance.
