we have a property in the prop file.. . somekey=01
but when we use the property it is returned as a int, but we needed the leading 0 in a string.
is there some trick to make it return the text..and not interpret
well, we finally figured this out.. and have a resolution, it was something I didn't even realize was possible
the developer was using the Property names directly in his script. which I didn't know you could even do!..
but.. the linkage between the property and the code involves some CA code that tries to determine what data type should be presented in the script
if the property is '01' you get integer, if the property is 'U1' you get string..
we changed the code to testExec.getStatValue("propertyname") instead of just propertyname, and now get the untruncated string from the config properties file..
