How to: Transfer parameter from SOAPUI to Selenium/Java (Continuous integration solution)

 

 

HI All, 

 

This is my solution for integrating SOAPUI with Selenium. I gave myself a challenge to call the PAYPAL REST service, grab a response parameter and feed it into a Selenium script as a dynamic value to confirm the payment. 

 

The below code I have made a custom method called runAPI. In my particular case it calls a SOAPUI project, which within it contains a few groovy scripts that output to the log using the log.info method.  One of those values I outputted was needed for my Selenium script to pick up.

 

runAPI executes my TestCase, reads the output stream, and then returns a List of strings which were captured with log.info. If your API fails, then it will output the exception/failure message and fail your test/build (as expected).

 

In the output code at the bottom of this post, you can see the output log for SOAPUI generated by SoapUITestCaseRunner. And at the very bottom you can the two string values return by runAPI.

From this i can grab the String below which I can then later dynamically go to using Selenium. Selenium uses this URL to confirm paypal payment.

 

Hope this is useful to anyone, and please let me know if you have your own solution.

Re: How to: Transfer parameter from SOAPUI to Selenium/Java (Continuous integration solution)

 

I came across some interesting results when attempting to reverse the process and move parameters back into SOAPUI. 

 

My setup requires me to call a SOAPUI TestCase containing REST calls, then Selenium, then finally a second TestCase to finalise the whole process. 

 

Whilst I observed parameters/properties transferring between TestCase's within SOAPUI GUI (by setting my parameters at a project level (or suite level)) , the same wasn't true when executing the TestCase's separately from Java, i.e. making two runner.run(); calls.  Its almost as if the values created from the first run are lost to memory, when you re-invoke runner.run(); 

 

 

Anyways, I managed to solve the issue, by pulling out the values from the first TestCase into java using my runAPI method and then inserting them back into the project using my setAPIproperties method. 

 

I also observed recreating the SoapUITestCaseRunner object between calls is a big no no because you lose continuity.

 

Anyways here is the code below: 

Pulling data out of SOAPUI into Java and then from Java back into SOAPUI. 

 

Calling Test code

	public void test() throws Throwable {


		//create the SoapUITestCaseRunner object once 
		loadAPI(SOAPprojectDir + "PAYPAL_API.xml");
		
		//Run against first TestCase
		List<String> logs = runAPI("PAYPAL_PAYMENT_TESTCASE","setPayment");
	
		//Show the variables java grabbed from SOAPUI 
		showRunAPIlog(logs);

		//save the strings from SOAPUI log
		accessToken = logs.get(0); 		
		confirmURL = logs.get(2); 		
		executeURL_API = logs.get(3); 
		
		//put the paramters/variables back into SOAPUI for the second TestCase call
		setAPIproperties("access_token="+accessToken,"execute_url="+executeURL_API);
		
		//run second TestCase call
		runAPI("PAYPAL_PAYMENT_TESTCASE","executePayment");

		
	}
