[ACCEPTED]-SoapUI getting request parameters in mock service script-soapui

If you want to access SOAP request and do 8 some XPath processing, there's an easier 7 way to do it in soapUI thanks to the power 6 of GPath and XmlSlurper.

Here's how you would access the 5 customer number:

def req = new XmlSlurper().parseText(mockRequest.requestContent)
log.info "Customer #${req.foo.data.CustomerNumber}"

As of Groovy 1.6.3 (which 4 is used in soapUI 2.5 and beyond), XmlSlurper 3 runs in namespace-aware and non-validating 2 mode by default so there's nothing else 1 you need to do.

One more example:

def request = new XmlSlurper().parseText(mockRequest.requestContent)
def a = request.Body.Add.x.toDouble()
def b = request.Body.Add.y.toDouble()
context.result = a + b

In this example we get 6 two parameters from the request and convert 5 them to doubles. This way we can perform 4 calculations on the parameters. The sample 3 SoapUI response for this example is:

<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:typ="http://example.org/math/types/">

You 2 can see how the calculations result is passed 1 back to the response.

In a pure Java (not using SoapUI) you would 2 just create a custom Naming Context like 1 this one:

import java.util.Iterator;
import java.util.List;

import javax.xml.XMLConstants;
import javax.xml.namespace.NamespaceContext;

class WSNamespaceContext implements NamespaceContext
    public String getNamespaceURI(String prefix)
        if ( prefix.equals("ns3") )
            return "http://www.mysite.com/services/taxservice";
       else if (prefix.equals("soapenv"))
            return "http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/";
            return XMLConstants.NULL_NS_URI;

    public String getPrefix(String namespace)
        if ( namespace.equals("http://www.mysite.com/services/taxservice") )
            return "ns3";
        else if (namespace.equals("http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"))
            return "soapenv";
            return null;

    public Iterator<List<String>> getPrefixes(String namespace)
        return null;

Then, parse it like so:

XPathFactory factory = XPathFactory.newInstance(); 
XPath xp = factory.newXPath(); 
xp.setNamespaceContext( nsc ); 
XPathExpression xpexpr = xp.compile("//ns3:CustomerNumber/text()");
NodeList nodes = (NodeList)xpexpr.evaluate(doc, XPathConstants.NODESET); 
for ( int i = 0; i < nodes.getLength(); i++ )  { 
    String val = nodes.item(i).getNodeValue();
    System.out.println( "Value: " + val  );

Extending http://www.soapui.org/soap-mocking/creating-dynamic-mockservices.html and based on http://www.soapui.org/apidocs/com/eviware/soapui/support/xmlholder.html I came up with 1 this:

// Create XmlHolder for request content
def holder = new com.eviware.soapui.support.XmlHolder( mockRequest.requestContent )
holder.namespaces["ns3"] = "ns3"

// Get arguments
def custNo = holder.getNodeValue("//ns3:CustomerNumber")
context.setProperty("custNo", custNo)
