OK, I figured out what I was doing wrong.  I had checked the "implicitly catch exceptions" checkbox on the wrong "level."  I had it checked for each individual test case instead of the entire suite.  Now everything works as it should.

Re: [qftestJUI] Aborting Test Case On Error

Hmm, I'm wondering...

Aborting a test-case after an exception, is the default behavior in
QF-Test, so normally the question is asked the other way round, i.e.
how _not_ to abort after an error.

So the question is, are you really getting an exception like a
ComponentNotFoundException or just an error from a failed check? The
latter will indeed not abort a test unless you explicitely tell it to.

If in doubt, please send us a run-log and we'll take a closer look.

Best regards,
