Extension using Debug mode


Extension using Debug mode

Just an idiot question, is using extension on debug mode slower compare when its compiled as .tcx file. The reason i did this is for faster deployment where other machine can just reload the extension on a shared location. I just wondering if it has significant effect on performance.

Re: Extension using Debug mode



It is my expectation that packing extension into .tcx file is for deployment convenience only. I believe that on load, TestComplete either internally unpacks extension or just reads the code and injects it into a sort of runtime sandbox. Thus the only possible performance penalty is on TestComplete start when it loads script extensions.
