I am invoking iTest test cases from Tomcat. While each test case runs it updates a DB table entry about progress.
I am noticing that there is some kind of lag between when the test case is started and it actually running.
It seems to take significantly longer (minutes instead of seconds!) than when invoked directly from a command prompt.
Can someone suggest what could be causing this? I am having to build in delays between test case execution to cater for this lag but I don't see any reason for the lag except for some kind of scheduling constraint imposed by iTest.
Any help appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
