Description Ivan Rancati 2007-07-17 05:43:04 UTC
2.3 RC3 on Linux Ubuntu, sun jdk1.5.0_10

I am testing a service that downloads files, and I lumped in a controller all
the error cases (where a file is not downloaded).
Some test cases return a small response body which is an error message, some
return a null body.
To double check that no file is actually downloaded, I am using a Size Assertion
and the criteria is "less than 500 bytes"

The small inconvenience is that the test cases with a null response body fail;
I see this error in Assertion Results

"Response was null"

Maybe it's more a specifications issue, but I think "null" should not fail "less
than x bytes"

Agreed - now fixed in SVN r564895.
