Which is the better/stable ReadyAPI Version ?

Hi just wanted to discuss on ReadyAPI version.

Currently am using ReadyAPI 3.9.2 version but not sure  whether is a better or stable version for executing test cases in jenkins and for jenkins deployment.

Re: Which is the better/stable ReadyAPI Version ?

Hey @Asima_29 

 

I think people are going to have difficulty in giving you "the correct" answer as in some ways it's a little subjective and for anyone to truly answer this they can only go on either their own experience (if theyve actually had problems with a specific ReadyAPI version with jenkins) or if theyve seen a number of people posting about ReadyAPI/jenkins issues.

 

SmartBear will always encourage people to upgrade to the later version.

 

I suppose you could view the release notes of previous versions, but I suppose this raises the question: what would you do if version v3.3.0 was thought of as particularly stable for pipelines?  Would you actually downgrade?

 

I think people would only notice 'dodgy' versions if there had been lots of posts moaning about a specific version or they'd had personal experience of issues.  People wouldn't notice if there had been ZERO issues with ReadyAPI/Jenkins.  As I dont think there has been a recent surge in posts moaning about specific ReadyAPI versions I'd say 1 recent version is as good as the rest.

 

you're on 3.9.2 and I know 3.10.0 is available.  HOWEVER - if 3.9.2 is actually working with no problems, then there seems little point in upgrading which will just increase the probability of finding a problem until 3.10.0 has been in use for a time and it's considered a stable release.

 

Obviously the above is just my opinion - the other people might have differing views on this.

if this helped answer the post, could you please mark it as 'solved'? Also if you consider whether the title of your post is relevant? Perhaps if the post is solved, it might make sense to update the Subject header field of the post to something more descriptive? This will help people when searching for problems. Ta
