In SOAtest9.9
How do I script the URL/endpoint to create REST endpoint dynamically by concatenating values from writable datasource columns. The test should be able to run post request for each data row.

    You would just concatenate the references to the columns in the URL file, something like "http://${host}/${path}" assuming that your data source had two columns named "host" and "path".

    I would avoid using groovy code and follow jakubiak's suggestion. However, if you must script something, you can run your groovy code from an Extension tool. Make sure your script return the desired value. You can chain a data bank to save the return value so you can reference it later (like in REST Client). It is common to chain an XML Data Bank to an Extension Tool. You can search the forum for "SOAPUtil.getXMLFromString" to find scripting examples.
