Re: [QF-Test] Catch fails to catch exception, running multiple tests

Hello Eyere,

sorry for the delayed response. Things are a bit busy right now...

The exception handling works as expected. To really understand what's
going on you should deactivate the debugger, run the TestCase and
examine the run-log.

You will see that the exception is caught in the dependency. However,
the error state of the exception is still propagated to the top, which
is why the debugger breaks on the exception. When in the debugger in
such a case, press the "Rethrow exception" toolbar button to continue
with exception handling.

Catch nodes in a dependency are intended for giving the dependency a
chance to log error information and clean up, not for suppressing the
exception. Otherwise unexpected exceptions would easily be overlooked.
Expected exceptions should be caught where they happen.

This also answers your second question. The test-run _will_ continue
with the next test, you're simply stuck in the debugger (and for that
see above).

Best regards,
    Greg
