How can we test a cobol program using SOAP UI

We have a cobol program in place and are trying to see if we can test the program from SOAP UI environment

    Interesting. What are you trying to achieve? What is your use case?

    How do you usually run your programs if there is no soapui?

    it depends what kind of interface does your cobol program expose. If HTTP or SOAP, then you can make a standard test case.


    If the only interface is startup parameters, you need to employ a Groovy Script test step. In that case you need to write a Groovy script, which executes the program and evaluates its output against expected values.
