Web Service wsdl URL as variable

Hi all,

Hopefully someone will be able to help me. I have a TestComplete project in JScript and I am trying to control the wsdl URL of a web service I have included in my Project.

Basically, I have the same web service hosted on two different servers, I am looking for an easy way to change between the two servers without having to go in and manually change the URL over each time.

I was trying to create a script based on the information in this post -

ut I'm having no luck with it.

Here is an example of what I've tried:

I have added two web services to my project with the names in the format 'WS_[IP]'

I have two variables added to my Project Suite - 'ServiceIP' which is a persistent variable of type string, with a default value of 'WS_[IP]'; and 'Service' which is a temporary variable of type Object.

  function WebServiceTest()


var testedServiceName;

testedServiceName = ProjectSuite.Variables.ServiceIP;

ProjectSuite.Variables.Service = eval(testedServiceName);




I'm getting a runtime error: 'ProjectSuite.Variables.Service is null or not an object' on the second last line.

Any help would be much appreciated!


  • Hi Justine,

    I think that instead of:

    ProjectSuite.Variables.Service = eval(testedServiceName);

    you should try this:

    ProjectSuite.Variables.Service = eval('WebServices.' + testedServiceName);

    I.e. evaluated expression should be a string with the value like this (without quotes):


    Does this help?
