Road to data driven testing in SoapUI using groovy script with excel file

SoapUI Pro has a feature to read data from external files like: excel, csv etc. But SoapUI does not provide such feature to read data from excel file. So for reading data from excel file in SoapUI, we need to write some code in groovy script.
I this post I will show you, how to read data from excel file.I am using poi jar files to read data from excel file in groovy, download following jar files and put into SoapUI lib folder.
  • poi-3.8-beta5-20111217.jar
  • poi-examples-3.8-beta5-20111217.jar
  • poi-excelant-3.8-beta5-20111217.jar
  • poi-ooxml-3.8-beta5-20111217.jar
  • poi-ooxml-schemas-3.8-beta5-20111217.jar
  • poi-scratchpad-3.8-beta5-20111217.jar 
  • dom4j-1.6.1.jar

Script assertion in Soap UI for WSDL API methods

In this post I will show you how to add script assertion in SoapUI response of wsdl api test methods.
Here I have an example of CurrencyConvertor, I created a SoapUI project and added test case for this method as you can see in below window.

Now here in response body I will add assertion that verify the “ConversionRateResult” value is always 104 for given input value.

BDD framework in Webdriver using C#

In my previous post, I have posted BDD framework in Webdriver using Java. In this post I will show you how to create BDD framework using C#. To achieve this I will use SpecFlow. This is same as Cucumber and you can write specs (features) file by using the same Gherkin language.
1. Install Visual studio.
2. Download and install SpecFlow from link :”click” For more detail about SpecFlow go to link ”click
3. Download NUnit Test Adapter from link:”click”.
Steps to create project: 
1. Go to File >>New >>Project and click.
2. Select Visual C# >> Class Library.
3. Enter project name into name filed and click on "OK" button, as below screen.

Java WebDriver BDD framework using Cucumber-JVM

In this post I will show you how to create BDD framework in webdriver selenium using cucumber-jvm. Cucumber –JVM is based on cucumber framework which allows to writes feature file in plain text using Gherkin language, This feature is supported by step definitions file which has implemented automation code of Webdriver.
This post cover maven based java webdriver BDD framework using cucumber for Google advance search scenario, Following are the steps to write scenario for BDD framework:
1.  First create a maven eclipse project.

Java junit client of WSDL webservices

In this post, I will show you how to create java client for WSDL web services.
I will Create a example of currency converter,  This is wsdl URL  for same. “currency converter

Request of “ConversionRate” method:

Webdriver implicit and explicit wait for element locator.

Today most of web application using Ajax, When page is load some element load in a different time of interval or some time request send without page loading if the element not present then it through element not found exception or not visible element etc.. To handle this Webdriver provides two type of wait “implicit” and “explicit” wait

Implicit Wait: implicit wait provide to load DOM object for a particular of time before trying to locate element on page. Default implicit wait is 0. We need to set implicit wait once and it apply for whole life of Webdriver object. Add below line of code in test for implicit wait. However implicit wait slow down execution of your test scripts if your application responding normally.

driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(30, TimeUnit.SECONDS);

Calabash android predefined steps.

Calabash android has some predefined steps, you don’t need to define these steps in your steps definition ruby file. Just call these functions in your  feature file by passing valid argument.

Assertion steps:
Following are the some steps definition for the assertion

Then /^I see the text "([^\"]*)"$/  

Then /^I see "([^\"]*)"$/

Then /^I should see "([^\"]*)"$/ do

Then /^I should see text containing "([^\"]*)"$/ do

Then /^I should not see "([^\"]*)"$/ do

Then /^I don't see the text "([^\"]*)"$/ do

Then /^the view with id "([^\"]*)" should have property "([^\"]*)" = "([^\"]*)"$/ do

Then /^the "([^\"]*)" activity should be open$/ do

Road to verify css properties value using Webdriver

To get css values of any locator, we will create java script function with the use of “getDefaultComputedStyle”function. We will execute java script function using webdriver and fetch css properties value.
getDefaultComputedStyle () gives  default computed value of all css properties of an element.
Here I have created a sample example in which I am verifying Google home page menu bar css properties color, height and width.

package com.test;

import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;
import org.openqa.selenium.JavascriptExecutor;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver;
import org.testng.Assert;
import org.testng.annotations.AfterSuite;
import org.testng.annotations.BeforeSuite;
import org.testng.annotations.Test;

public class WebdriverCSSValue {

   private WebDriver driver;
   private String baseUrl;

   public void setUp() throws Exception {
         driver = new FirefoxDriver();                    
         baseUrl = "";
         driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(30, TimeUnit.SECONDS);

   public void testCSSvalueVerifying() {
         driver.get(baseUrl + "/");
         // js scripts
         String js = "return window.document.defaultView.getComputedStyle(" +
         String jsColor = js+".getPropertyValue('color')";
         String jsHeight = js+".getPropertyValue('height')";
         String jswidth = js+".getPropertyValue('width')";

         // execution of js scripts to fetch css values
         JavascriptExecutor jsexecuter = (JavascriptExecutor) driver;
         String color = (String) jsexecuter.executeScript(jsColor);
         String height = (String) jsexecuter.executeScript(jsHeight);
         String width = (String) jsexecuter.executeScript(jswidth);
         Assert.assertTrue(color.equals("rgb(34, 34, 34)"));
         // print css values
   public void tearDown() throws Exception {

Here is an example of webdriver sikuli integration to handle below selenium jar file download window popup utility.

Some Webdriver API functions in java and its implementation

Following are the some API functions and it implementation
1. How to click on element: By using click() function we perform click operation on page element:

WebElement el  =  driver.findElement("ElementID"));;

2. How to enter text into page element: By using sendkeys() function we enter text in page element such as text field, area etc:

WebElement el  =  driver.findElement("ElementID"));
el.clear(); //use to clear input field
el. sendKeys (“User name”);

3. How to count total number rows in table:

List rows = driver.findElements(By.className("//table[@id='tableID']/tr"));
int totalRow = rows.size();

Road to data driven testing in SoapUI from csv file

In this post I will show you how to execute SoapUI test for a set of values. For this I have put all data in csv file. I write groovy scripts for reading data from csv and executing the test steps.
Below is the groovy script for reading data from “URL.csv” file where I put all user credentials.

def groovyUtils = new

def csvFilePath = "D:\\URL.csv"
context.fileReader = new BufferedReader(new FileReader(csvFilePath))

rowsData = context.fileReader.readLines()
int rowsize = rowsData.size()

for(int i =0;  I < rowsize;  i++)

    rowdata = rowsData[i]
    String[] data = rowdata.split(",") data[1]
    groovyUtils.setPropertyValue("Login", "UserName", data[0])
    groovyUtils.setPropertyValue("Login", "Pass", data[1])
    testRunner.runTestStepByName( "Login")  

In above code I read data from “URL.csv” file and pass user name and password into “UserName “ and “Pass” of Login steps parameters.
“Login”  test step executed by using test runner for every data.

Road to reading data from text file in SoapUI using groovy script

In this post, I am going to show you how to read data from text file in SoapUI. SoapUI Pro has some advance feature which is not in SaopUI as data fetching from external sources so in SoapUI we use Groovy script for that. Following are the peace of groovy script code for reading data from text file.

1. Reading all data from text file.
//reading all txt file at once

File file = new File("D://user.txt")
fileContent = file.getText()         fileContent

2. Reading data line by line from text file.
//reading text line by line

File file1 = new File("D://user.txt")
List textLine = file1.readLines() textLine

3. Reading data randomly of any line from text file.
//reading text randon line number

File file2 = new File("D://user.txt")
List textLine2 = file2.readLines()
rowIndex  =  Math.abs(new Random().nextInt() % 4 + 1) textLine2[rowIndex]

Road to handle popup window using text in Webdriver

Some times we have not title of pop window so in this case we can identified some unique text (content ) of popup window which is not in other window. Using this text we can switch to pop window. Below are the logic and implemented code.

Execution of SoapUI project using Junit

In this post I am going to show you how to execute SoapUI project using Junit.
SoapUI provide testrunner class name “SoapUITestCaseRunner” which can be used to run soapui test using java class, maven or ant build tool. We create object of this class in java file and call the run function to execute soapui project.

Steps to create Junit test for soap ui project:
1. Chose any IDE as eclipse or NetBean
2. Add “soapui-4.5.1.jar” from soapui bin folder and soapui lid folder as library to class path of your project (eclipse).
3. Use “SoapUITestCaseRunner” class object to run soapui project as mentioned in below code:

Road to command line execution of soapUI project

We run SoapUI project using SoapUI GUI interface.  SoapUI also provide set off batch files to execute soapUI tests from command line without using SoapUI GUI interface.

Following are the runner scripts inside installed SoapUI bin folder.
1. testrunner.bat : this is use to run functional test using command line.
2. loadtestrunner.bat: This is used to run soapui load testing using command line.
3. mockservicerunner.bat:  This is used to run soapui mock services using command line.
4. toolrunner.bat: This is used to launch soapui tools.
5. securitytestrunner.bat: This command is used to run security tests

Road to integration of calabash android test with Jenkins

3. Install the”cucumber-jvm-reports-java” plugin: following are the steps to install plugin.

Road to performance testing using soapUI

In this post I would like to show you performance testing of webservices using soap ui.
Performance testing of web services is not just running SOAP or XML messages in a loop to run the service. It should be a well-planned activity which must be aligned with the performance expectations of the overall service-oriented solution.  You can run multiple type of performance test such as SOAP , JSON, XML format messaging through a single interface
SoapUI allows users to configure various load testing options such as delays in between threads to simulate real-world use cases and run tests in burst mode to stress test services.

Some Important SoapUI functions in groovy script.

In this post I will show you some important soapui functions which are basically used in soap ui groovy scripts.

1. Following functions are used to read properties in soapui project.
projectPropertyValue = context.expand( '${#Project#Test}')

projectPropertyValue = context.expand( '${#TestCase#Test}')

projectPropertyValue = context.expand( '${#TestSuite#Test}'

I have create three properties with name "Test" at project, testsuite and test case level. Using above code we can read values in groovy scripts and can be use where needed.
2. Setting properties value test case.
def myTestCase = context.testCase

myTestCase.setPropertyValue("Name", “Value”)

3. Reading end url value of any test steps. Replace your test step name with “TestStepName”
EndPointUrl  = context.getProperty("TestStepName","Endpoint")
4. Setting parameter value of test steps. Replace you test step name, parameter name and value with “TestStepName”, “dataSet” and “value”.
def groovyUtils = new

//set data parameter value in TestStep
groovyUtils.setPropertyValue("TestStepName", "dataSet", “value”)
Will continue adding more function

Road to capture clip of element locator in webdriver java

In this post I am going to show you how to capture clip of page element using webdriver.
Below I have written a ““java webdriver test script of a google application where I capture google menu clip and save into project.

package com.webdriver.test;

import java.awt.image.BufferedImage;
import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;
import javax.imageio.ImageIO;
import org.openqa.selenium.By;
import org.openqa.selenium.OutputType;
import org.openqa.selenium.Point;
import org.openqa.selenium.TakesScreenshot;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
import org.openqa.selenium.WebElement;
import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver;
import org.testng.annotations.AfterSuite;
import org.testng.annotations.BeforeSuite;
import org.testng.annotations.Test;

public class CaptureElementClip {

        private WebDriver driver;
        private String baseUrl;

        public void setUp() throws Exception {
                    driver = new FirefoxDriver();
                    baseUrl = "";
                    driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(30, TimeUnit.SECONDS);

        public void testGoogle() throws IOException {

                    //open application url

                    //take screen shot
                    File screen = ((TakesScreenshot) driver)
                    //get webelement object of google menu locator
                    WebElement googleMenu = driver.findElement("gbz"));
                    Point point = googleMenu.getLocation();

                    //get element dimension
                    int width = googleMenu.getSize().getWidth();
                    int height = googleMenu.getSize().getHeight();
                    BufferedImage img =;
                    BufferedImage dest = img.getSubimage(point.getX(), point.getY(), width,
                    ImageIO.write(dest, "png", screen);
                    File file = new File("Menu.png");
                    FileUtils.copyFile(screen, file);

          public void tearDown() throws Exception {

After executing above test a “Menu.png” file is generated in root folder of your project.
