Re: corrupt project file

That is fine.
Is the file(s) under git/svn/ any repo?

Re: corrupt project file

Hmm..certain tools maintain local history. Not sure about ReadyAPI.

By the way, what does the log file shows when try to open?
Does it open in a browser?
May be tool unable to open the file. However, the file can be compared(working copy vs file in the versioning system) with version control tools (git / svn what ever you are using) . So, you can get the major portion of work .

Re: corrupt project file

Hi @HimanshuTayal,

Are you working on composite or flat project file? I know theory suggests use a composite when using version control but ive worked on projects when they version controlled flat files.

The reason i ask is that ive fixed corrupt flat project files a number of times and its either corruption from no longer being wellformed xml or charset corruption with chars not being recognised by the xml charset (e.g. UTF-8, etc.) and replaces problematic chars with substitution chars...either of these options can be fixed by trying to open the project file with something with xml parser (xmlspy, a browser, etc.) or notepad++ to find the substitution chars.

I cant comment however on fixing a composite project....there could be problems corruption with the individual files that make up the composite or it could be the links between the files that could be the corruption.

Ok....thats all i got!

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

Re: corrupt project file

@nmrao , no luck, we have stated building from the recovered project which we backup one week earlier.

 

It gives us learing to backup the work daily. Smiley Indifferent
