Parsing a simple SOAPUI JSON Response in Groovy

Hi Guys,

I am new to Soap UI and Groovy. I am looking to develop a generic function in Groovy which takes a SOAPUI rest response which is a JSON ,access all the objects in it and print it on to the console,something like the code below, I have searched google but could not get much help ,I found the solution as described below, but it really did not help my cause

Solution found on slack overflow

 

Requirement 1 :  A generic groovy function to print any rest API JSON response as key value pairs on to the console.

 

Please Note : I have no idea of field names inside the JSON response before hand,so the example I gave below won't work in my case.

 

Requirement 2 : Read the Rest API JSON response into a groovy collection(Map if possible or some kind of generic collection) and again iterate through that collection and access it as key value pairs.

 

 

static void PrintJSONResponse(String jsonResponse)

{

    //parse the response

    def map  = new groovy.json.JsonSlurper().parse(new File('Test.json'))

   //iterate through the response and print the key value pairs in the response
    map.each { key, value ->
  println "$key : $value" //this code generates error for the json file I have attached
} //the above code generates errors as below,so how to achieve this?
}

Possible solutions: doCall(java.lang.Object, java.lang.Object), findAll(), findAll(), isCase(java.lang.Object), isCase(java.lang.Object)], see error log for details

 

 

I have executed this code and got the result but the issue is I want a generic function,as I have no idea what the contents(field names inside the response) of the response json are. So my requirement is no matter what ever json response I pass it the function should parse all the objects and print them as key ,value pairs (please fins the sample json file attached)

 

 

 

def map  = new groovy.json.JsonSlurper().parse(new File('D:/Work/AQA/APIAutomation/DataFiles/Expected Data JSON Files/Test.json'))
map.each { 
  log.info "Name : "+it.name
  log.info "ID : " + it.uid
}

The structure of your json data with nesting is different to the flat example in slack overflow.

 

If you don't expect that structure to change then try

 

 

map.each {it.each 
    { key, value ->
    log.info "$key : $value"
    }
}

 

 

Thanks PaulMS
