Settings.xml file for a composite project very large is that normal?

Hi,

 

I have a composite project and the Settings.xml file has 34MB. Ready API is failing to save the project before close the project. I didn't research much inside this file but probably it's duplicating the project content inside this file. 

 

For example one string that I have only inside the Project TearDown Script I can found it 312 times inside this settings.xml file. Something is wrong here Smiley Happy

 

Is there any way to "refresh" this settings.xml file with the actual project configuration? Or should I change one configuration inside ReadyAPI to avoid this problem?

 

Thanks,

Rodrigo Petry

Hi Rodrigo,

 

What Ready! API version are you using? I would suggest that you perform the following steps to try to avoid the issue:

  1. Open the project in your Ready! API version.
  2. Save the project as non-composite.
  3. Install the latest Ready! API version – v. 1.5 – and open the saved project there.
  4. Save the project as a composite one in Ready! API 1.5.

Does it help you solve the issue?

Thank you Tanya

 

I found inside settings.xml file this xml tag "<con:soapui-project" 1249 times. And I delete all these "old" projects inside settings.xml and now the file has only 33KB and everything is working fine.

 

As this is a shared project I'll ask everybody that is using this project to install this latest version of Ready API.

 

Thank you for your answer.
