Re: getting a value from soap response

Hi Franky,

create a groovy-script step after your request that gets the response message and parses it using any of the available XML-parsing options in groovy (http://groovy.codehaus.org/Processing+XML)..  for example:

// get request property
def request = testRunner.testCase.getTestStepByName( "Request 1" )
def property = request.getProperty( "request" )

// parse out textnodes to modify
def node = new groovy.util.XmlParser(false,false).parseText(property.value)
...


Hope this helps!

Re: getting a value from soap response

Hi!

If you right click in the TestCase editor or right click in the project tree on a TestCase (it usually says Test Steps ()) you will be able to choose Add Step/Groovy Script.

You can read mote about how to use Groovy Scripts at:

http://www.soapui.org/userguide/functio ... ystep.html

And about how to work with TestCases at

http://www.soapui.org/userguide/functio ... cases.html.

Hope this helps!
