Favorite SoapUI Script

Just to see what all cool stuff people have done with SoapUI. I have quite a few that I use. A lot of mine are external to SoapUI but use it for the backend. I will post some of my Java code and some of my SoapUI code as well.

First, my Java stuff because I love these:

This one is still in development right now, it is going to be a tester that continuously runs and checks the status, ping etc etc of about 30 web services. Currently I am setting up the Admin panel which will allow the user to select a node and assign it's XPath to a property from a file or database. This project I should be wrapping up in the next week or so. I am just going to post the portions that build the project from a folder of WSDLs.

public class EndPointTester {

* @param args the command line arguments

public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
Map<String,NodeList> nodes = new HashMap<String,NodeList>();
WsdlProject project = buildProject();
for (Interface iface:project.getInterfaceList()) {
for (Operation op:iface.getOperationList()) {
for (Request req:op.getRequestList()) {
Document doc = loadXMLFromString(req.getRequestContent());
//This is where the document parsing would be done

private static WsdlProject buildProject() throws Exception {
File WSDLDir = new File(new File("").getAbsolutePath() + "\\Data\\WSDLs\\");
WsdlProject project = new WsdlProject();
project.setName("This is a new project");
WsdlInterface iface = null;
for (File wsdl : WSDLDir.listFiles()) {
iface = WsdlInterfaceFactory.importWsdl(project, wsdl.toString(), true)[0];
return project;

private static void buildTestCases(WsdlProject project) {
WsdlTestSuite TS = project.addNewTestSuite("Test");
WsdlTestCase TC = TS.addNewTestCase("Test");
for (Interface inface : project.getInterfaceList()) {
for (Operation op : inface.getAllOperations()) {
TestStepConfig TStepC = WsdlTestRequestStepFactory.createConfig((WsdlOperation) op, op.getName());

private static Document loadXMLFromString(String xml) throws Exception {
DocumentBuilderFactory factory = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();
DocumentBuilder builder = factory.newDocumentBuilder();
return builder.parse(new ByteArrayInputStream(xml.getBytes()));

This portion will scan a directory (currentDirectory\Data\WSDLs) and create a SoapUI project (Test.xml) with a test step for every single operation. My favorite within SoapUI itself has a lot of proprietary stuff in it that I sadly can not release, second favorite is likely my UI system:
