Increase timeout for Selenium RC

Reported by Mark Dodwell | May 10th, 2009 @ 07:53 AM

I have to increase the timeout from 5 to 10 seconds on my machine or I get sporadic timeout errors because the browser doesn't load quick enough.

I think 5 seconds is too low, my machine is reasonable (2GB 2Ghz Intel Macbook) so I propose changing the timeout to 10 seconds.

    I'm not sure that increasing the default timeout is the correct answer. If your page is taking more than 5 seconds to load, you likely have another problem. You could also possibly be waiting for the wrong thing, particularly using ajax. I would be more in favor of a patch and tests showing a configurable timeout mechanism than changing the default and making failing builds take even longer (selenium is slow enough).

    Don't be put off that I'm marking this "wontfix". It's a housekeeping thing. If you come up with a better solution, we'd be glad to pull it in.

    Thanks for the effort!

    Making this a configurable item would be fine though. I may have to do that myself.
