Testing Agile Web Services from soapUI

Published on

For those that have done any kind of web services development, soapUI is a great tool to have in the arsenal. After adding a WSDL to a project, soapUI will stub out requests, which I often use as a testing facility to validate the request/response messages that I am to code against. The hurdle to using soapUI with Agile is the authentication mechanism they chose to employ. Some systems such as BI will have a separate service to authenticate, then a sessionID can be passed around for subsequent calls, but Agile is not architected this way. Instead they chose to use the WWW-Authenticate header passed in the request. This blog will show you how to set up soapUI so it authenticates and allows you to test your Agile PLM service calls.

Testing Agile Web Services from soapUI

  1. 1. Use soapUI with Agile PLM
  2. 2. Introduction  soapUI is a great tool to have in the tools arsenal.  The hurdle to using soapUI with Agile is the authentication mechanism they chose to employ.  Some systems such as BI will have a separate service to authenticate, then a sessionID can be passed around for subsequent calls, but Agile is not architected this way.  This presentation will show you how to set up soapUI so it authenticates and allows you to test your Agile PLM service calls.
  3. 3. Steps to Success  Download the WSDL  Create a soapUI project  Create a Test Case  Running the Test Case Download the WSDL
  4. 4. Download the WSDL Before using soapUI, you will need the WSDL, follow these steps to download it:  Navigate to http://<host>:<port>/CoreService/services in a browser  For the purpose of this blog, we will right click and save-as on the wsdl link next to BusinessObject  Remember where you save the file
  5. 5. Create a soapUI project 1. Open soapUI 2. Click File | New soapUI Project 3. Enter "AgileBusinessObject" as the project name 4. Select the WSDL from above for the "Initial WSDL/WADL" file 5. Click "OK" 6. You will see that soapUI builds out a tree structure with all of the available calls in the service. Lets modify the getObject request: 7. Expand the object tree to reveal Projects | AgileBusinessObject | BusinessObject_Binding | getObject | Request 1 8. Right click on Request 1 and click "Clone Request" and name it "getTest" 9. For the purpose of the blog, which is simply understanding how to get soapUI to a usable state, we are going to strip out all of the unnecessary content in this request. Therefore any nodes that are "Optional" or "Zero or more repetitions" can be removed. 10. Fill in the "classIdentifier" and the "objectNumber" of the Agile object to fetch 11. Click File | Save All Projects
  6. 6. Final Request XML <soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:v1="http://xmlns.oracle.com/AgileObjects/Core/Business/V1"> <soapenv:Header/> <soapenv:Body> <v1:getObject> <request> <!--1 or more repetitions:--> <requests> <!-- Rodney - this is a part lookup --> <classIdentifier>10141</classIdentifier> <objectNumber>P00001</objectNumber> </requests> </request> </v1:getObject> </soapenv:Body> </soapenv:Envelope>
  7. 7. Create a Test Case Normally I do not use test cases because my needs for soapUI are pretty simple. In the case of Agile though, the test cases can handle the authentication headers for us.  Right click on Projects | AgileBusinessObject | BusinessObject_Binding | getObject | getTest and select "Add to TestCase"  Enter "AgileBusinessTests" as the name to create  Enter "TestCases" as the test case to create  Click OK on the Add Request to Test Case dialog that opens  When the test case window opens, notice a key icon on the dialog tool bar, click it  Enter the Agile username, password, and "Agile" for the domain  Click OK
  8. 8. Running the Test Case All that remains is the execution of the test case. In the TestCases dialog, click the play button (icon on the toolbar). You can double click the getTest row in the TestCases dialog to see the request and response associated with the test. Pretty simple - happy testing!
