Hi Derrik,

there's more than one way to skin a cat.

I did something similar, but I'm not sure of the consequences, though.

Instead of an if-else, I actually did a try-catch block, where I tried to
set a value to ${group:name} and under the catch node, I loaded the
property sheet in the case of a MissingPropertiesException.  Is it ok if
I skinned the cat this way?

Hi Derrik,

one possible solution would be an if-condition around the load-properties
node, which checks for one of those properties. If it is not set, then
load it, otherwise do nothing.

The setup-nodes will be executed before each test-case, that's to ensure
fulfillment of the prerequisites, so the if-pattern might a good approach.

I would like to load properties once.  The Test Case nodes are
independent of each other using dependency nodes, so how do I load a
property sheet that contains property values for more than one Test
Case?  Is there a way, other than keeping track myself, to load a
property sheet once, and reference the sheet to get values (i.e.
${group:name}) for multiple Test Cases?

For the Test Set, I can break up the sheets into individual Test Case
property sheets, but that would be a maintenance nightmare.  Or, I can
just load the sheet every time a test case is ran, like adding it to a
Setup node, for example.  I'm not sure if this will waste cpu cycles
or hog any memory.  Please advise.
