How to enable ReadyAPI Events execution from command line


How to enable ReadyAPI Events execution from command line

Hi Team,

We are using ReadyAPI 2.6.0 along with Cucumber 4.


We are using events in our project. When we execute test cases from the ReadyAPI application, the events are working as expected. However, when we start the project from command line via Cucumber, we notice that the events are not triggered.


Could you please explain how to trigger the events in ReadyAPI project from command line. 


Thank you.

Hi @NewAutoTester,


Could you please run the ReadyAPI test via testrunner.bat? Specify the same command line parameters that you specify in Cucumber. Do you see the same behavior?

When we run the ReadyAPI test via testrunner.bat with default parameters we could see the events is triggered whereas from cucumber it does not.

testrunner.bat command used:

"C:\Program Files\SmartBear\ReadyAPI-2.6.0\bin\testrunner.bat" -sTestSuite1 "-cTestCase1" -r -a -j -f${WORKSPACE} "-RJUnit-Style HTML Report" -FXML "-EDefault environment" "C:\Users\<userID>\Soap UI\SoapUIProject"

Below are the commands that are used in cucumber to run the test cases.


WsdlProjectPro project = new WsdlProjectPro("src/test/resources/xml/SoapUIProject");
WsdlTestCase testCase = project.getTestSuiteByName("TestSuite1").getTestCaseByName("TestCase1");
WsdlTestCaseRunner runner = PropertiesMap(), false);


Thank You.


What event is it that is not running? The reason I ask is that from your command line, you are running a TestSuite, but in your code for cucumber you are just running a TestCase. Thus if you are expecting a TestSuite event to run I can understand why it doesn't if you just run the TestCase.



We are having a event TestRunListener.afterStep when the test step fails there is some logging done in that event.

Thanks Tanya and Radford for your replies!

@NewAutoTester, have you managed to find a solution?

Community, maybe is there anyone who has experience in work with Cucumber? Can you assist please?

Thanks in advance.

Hi @NewAutoTester,


It looks like the article Rao has found should help you resolve the issue. Please let us know if you still need any more assistance.

Hi Tanya,


@rao -- Thank you for the infomation. 


We tried to use SoapUITestCaseRunner but it does not allow us to set TestCase property,so we are using WsdlProjectPro which does not trigger the SoapUI Events.
