Subject RE: Error accessing same http session across test methods
Date Fri, 22 Nov 2002 16:42:54 GMT
No, it's as designed. Each test method gets a new session. Not only that,
but test methods are not guaranteed to operate in any sequence, so relying
on state from one method to the next is generally a bad idea.
