Structuring Groovy

Hello Members,


Is there any way in ReadyApi or any other tool out there where i can structure my unstructured Groovy Code in Groovy Script or Script assertion

  • Hi there,


    By structure do you mean format/beautify (auto indentation)

    This is possible with xml forms using the shortcut Alt + f



    As for structuring Groovy, you can use external editors such as sublimetext3 which can open your entire project filesystem, or you can copy and paste your scripts into here to be formatted


    To add the formatting functionality click preferences -> key bindings

    Then in the keymap.User window (should be the blank window on the right) copy and paste this


    	{"keys": ["alt+shift+f"], "command": "reindent", "args": {"single_line": false}}



    This allows you to format with the shortcut Alt + Shift + f. One thing to note: When you copy and paste your groovy code over make sure you click view -> syntax -> groovy.






     Hope this helped,

      And i hope it won't send any information or code anywhere wlse online.


      Coz by using this i want to format my companies code and it won't be allowed to use these open-source softwares to be installed on local machine.

        It is an offline text editing program, similar to notepad - check with your admin team if they can install it for you.


        But to answer your original question, no I don't think ReadyAPI or SoapUI have any built in groovy formatter, I'm sure you could suggest it as a new feature


        All the best,



        EDIT: I see you already have here haha, best of luck with that :smileyhappy:
