I was reading the manual about patterns when I cam acros this note on using denomination.

Quote:
Note: We would not recommend playing with "denomination" option without necessity as Log Analyzer separate test items by name (not only name, however name is one of the keys). If you rename test item, log file will contain records with different names related to the same test item. As result Log Analyzer will show 2 statistical records for the same test item. We plan to redesign Log Analyzer in version 8.

And then I read this from the notes on the new beta.

Quote:
Log Analyzer collects information differently considering TestID as property with higher priority.
In particular this means you will see single item in the report even if you renamed this test item several times. Log Analyzer will show latest used test name but collect test statistics using all recorded names. Also, if you have 2 test items with the same name, Log Analyzer will show 2 items separating statistics using TestID.

So my question is what is the actual end result now if you use denomination? Does the note for denomination still have merit? Or does it's explanation need to be revised in the manual to reflect the new change to log analyzer?

It depends on your settings.
In most cases denomination will not lead to problems if you use new Log Analyzer.
However you may setup ODBC logging and did not setup testid field for the profile (Log Analyzer will show warning but allows such configuration). In such case tests with changed name will be considered as new test...
