Speeding up test set execution

Wednesday, February 4, 2015
Is there an article or anything that would help optimize the automated execution of a test set? We are currently connecting to testexecute and once a test case completes, there is a 1-2 minute delay before the next one starts. We have the exit after each test case disabled and the wait time set to 5000ms. Are there any other settings to look at to help speed the execution of a test set up?

Hi Dewayne

There is a slight delay between running TestComplete / TestExecute tests because we have to open and close the tests which can take time. It shouldn't be as much as 1-2 minutes, but there's not much that we can do.

Thanks Jim,
Sorry for the delay in replying. I have been off the project for a bit but now back on. I do understand the need for a delay in between, however we are seeing the same 1-2 delay in between. Any ideas where we might start looking to see where that delay is coming from?

I think I may have figured out at least some of the issue. For TestExecute, no matter if I have the "Close TE After Each Test Case" check box checked or not, Test Execute closes and has to reopen between test case execution. Is there perhaps a patch or something that addresses this issue?
