Clone test Step to test case using java in soap ui



I am trying to clone all test steps in all test cases in a suite to a particular test case in the same project.


I am reading the entire list of test cases and their steps in a suite, saving these steps in a list.

Now i want to add or clone these steps to a specific test case . 


An ideas here on how to proceed now ? @nmrao  any champion advice  ?


WsdlProject project = new WsdlProject(path);
// get a list of all test suites on the project
List<TestSuite> suiteList = project.getTestSuiteList();

for (int i = 0; i < suiteList.size(); i++) {
TestSuite suite = suiteList.get(i);

String suiteName = suite.getName();
System.out.println("Test suite - " + suiteName + " , Enabled :" + !suite.isDisabled());

// empty List for all test steps from Test case
List<com.eviware.soapui.model.testsuite.TestStep> tsToBeAdded = new ArrayList<TestStep>();

if (suiteName.equals("Sometestsuite")) {

// read the test cases in each suite
List<com.eviware.soapui.model.testsuite.TestCase> caseList = suite.getTestCaseList();
System.out.println("test cases in suite - " + caseList.size());
for (int k = 0; k < caseList.size(); k++) {
com.eviware.soapui.model.testsuite.TestCase testCase = caseList.get(k);
.println("Test Case - " + testCase.getName() + " , Enabled :" + !testCase.isDisabled());

// dont pick up load test
if (!testCase.getName().equals("LoadTest")) {

if (!testCase.isDisabled()) {

// find all test steps
List<com.eviware.soapui.model.testsuite.TestStep> stepList = testCase.getTestStepList();
System.out.println("test steps in test case - " + stepList.size());
for (int j = 0; j < stepList.size(); j++) {
com.eviware.soapui.model.testsuite.TestStep step = stepList.get(j);
System.out.println("Test step added - " + step.getName() + " , Enabled :"
+ !step.isDisabled());





// check if test step list not empty
if (tsToBeAdded.size() > 0) {
// add the steps to Load test test case
com.eviware.soapui.model.testsuite.TestCase loadTestCase = suite.getTestCaseByName("LoadTest");

for (TestStep testStep : tsToBeAdded) {
System.out.println("Test step List - " + testStep.getName());

//TODO - somehow clone or add these test steps to this test case } } } }

Could not go thru the code posted. Does it work with above? or what is the exact issue?

Re: Clone test Step to test case using java in soap ui

basically i need a way to insert or clone an existing test step to another test case programmatically.


CloneTestStepAction cloneTS = new CloneTestStepAction();
cloneTS.perform((WsdlTestStep) step, new String(step.getName()));

The code above ia m trying is not working . any ideas here?
