Really puzzling issue when using soapUI with Microsoft Team Foundation Server

We are using TFS for version control and check in our soapUI projects and groovy files into this system. I have one of my GlobalGroovy files checked in TFS. This file has a function which update the XML of some request.

The function is

void CreateRandomUser(context, String CreateUserRequestName)

Calendar c = Calendar.getInstance();
String timeStamp = c.get(Calendar.MONTH).toString() + c.get(Calendar.DAY_OF_MONTH ).toString() + c.get(Calendar.HOUR_OF_DAY).toString() + c.get(Calendar.MINUTE).toString() + c.get(Calendar.SECOND).    toString() + c.get(              Calendar.MILLISECOND).toString() ;
String UserName = "aaaaa" + timeStamp;
String Email = UserName + "@" + UserName + ".com";
String DisplayName = UserName;

def groovyUtils = new context )
def holder = groovyUtils.getXmlHolder( CreateUserRequestName + "#Request" )
holder.setNodeValue( "//user:CreateUser/user:request/user:UserProfile/user:EmailAddress", Email )
holder.setNodeValue( "//user:CreateUser/user:request/user:UserProfile/user:Username", UserName )
//Update DisplayName
holder.setNodeValue( "//user:CreateUser/user:request/user:UserProfile/user:DisplayName", DisplayName )

// update request with updated xml


The problem is that when I call this function, the value soapUI writes is not the one that is inside this function. soapUI seems to referencing some older file.

If I save the same function in another file, it works fine.

I am not sure if my explanation is clear. I think if I can show you over Webex that would be much easier. Not sure if the issue is with TFS or with soapUI

Please Ignore. I had two files in the scripts folder whose name was different but the class name was the same. soapUI was fetching the method from one of the files which I did not anticipate. I made the class names unique and it works now.

Hi Ali,

thanks for following up on this, I'll see if we can somehow detect this situation and show a warning..
