Triggering SOAtest TestSuite Runs Using Java Code Internally through ExtensionTool

rahul157rahul157 Posts: 25

1) I have a set of TestSuites In a Project.
2) I want to use Extension Tool that'll call Java code or another supported prmm. language.
3)Code will run the desired TestSuite on basis on some conditions that I'll set.

Any Help appreciated. :smile:

    Hi Rahul,

    One thing you might be able to try is calling the SOAtest REST API to execute the additional tests. To use it, you must first start up the SOAtest server, which can be found under Window -> Show View -> SOAtest Server.

    From there, you can start up the server, and you can find the API at http://[machine_name]:9080/soavirt/api. The specific API you would be looking for would be POST /v5/testExecutions. Could you give this a look and see if it might work for your use case?

    Hope this helps,

    Hi Rahul157,

    What you can do now involves Test Flow Logic. You can extract or define a condition variable at run time then use test flow logic to indicate which test suite should be disabled if the input is present. See the following workflow

    1. Create a variable to define the execution number
    2. Extract or define the user input, with a databank, into the variable
    3. Create an extension tool to map the user input to an integer
      "See code in next post"
    4. Set Test flow logic (In Execution Options) to execute the test scenario if the input does NOT = the desired value. Like this example

    This should give you the desired effect. I have attached a tst file that does this. It was created using SOAtest 9.9

    from com.parasoft.api import *
    def swapValueForInt(input,context):
        userInput = context.getValue("Generated Data Source", "dataBankUserInput")
        if userInput=="acctadd":
            Application.showMessage ("user input was acctadd setting test execution var to 1")
        if userInput=="copycard":
            Application.showMessage ("user input was copycard setting test execution var to 2")
