I have a small test case of four steps, with a problem that step #2 (an RMI call) fails, and as no response is subsequently being sent to step #3 (validation of step #2 to provide an "UP" or "DOWN" status that's sent to step #4 to write the result to an Excel table), the test case status never shows "DOWN". One thing I tried was setting step #2 to continue to step #3 in the event of an environment failure, but that doesn't ensure that a response is sent to step #3 when step #2 can't make a connection. I'm thinking adding a step between #2 and #3 to provide exception handling might be the answer, but I'm not having any luck. I didn't know if anyone had a thought on how to approach a problem like mine.
Thanks for any insight,
