Why? this is why
Why? <a href="http://interglot.com/interglotresult.php?SrcLang=2&DstLang=2&word=transient&sourceid=mozilla-search">this</a> is why
Just realised actually it was a bug in the test code that did not set the variable to turn on the test mode :) Once that was done, the transient variable was set in the action, and was subsequently asserted correctly in the test code. The fact that it's "transient" is not the issue here since I'm checking the variable values BEFORE persistence takes place.
Thanks for the insightful reply anyway. Do appreciate you taking the time to check out the synonym definition of the word "transient". I'm sure all of us are much enlightened as a result.
he, english is not the native language of everyone. So a list with synonyms could have shed some light on this issue. Ok, my response could have been interpreted in more than one way as I read it again. It was surely not intended to be be offensive and if you interpreted it that way, I ... yes I think I apologize.
