Publish Post Action fails due to Javelin Crash

CA Test Data Manager (Data Finder / Grid Tools)


Our publish process has a post action that executes a javelin flow along with a number of sub flows.  We have been seeing situations where these flows will fail without any message in the log that is generated as part of the publish.  I was hoping to get more information on what might be causing this issue.  Does Javelin have any additional logging in this situation or are there any other logs on the server I might be able to look at to determine a cause?


Through some extensive troubleshooting with the Development team we found that the Javelin was crashing when the flow log was locked by some other application.


Release : 4.7

Component : CA Test Data Manager and Javelin 


To handle this Engineering updated the Javelin code so the flow now waits for 1/2 second when the log file is locked by another application, and it will let Javelin crash only after waiting for 100 times consecutively.

This change is found in Javelin-2.0.713.0. Contact Support for a copy of this Javelin relase, if needed.
