  • 1.  Add new values in response in live invocation scenario

    Posted Jul 24, 2018 02:56 AM

    Hi All,

    I have a requirement where i need to invoke live service from vsm, capture its response and add some of the xml element values from response and send the new response as the virtual response.


    For invoking "Live Invocation step" i have added "return ExecutionMode.LIVE;" in the Virtual service router step. Also in the Live Invocation Step i have given Target Server and Target Port of the live service.

    After "Live Invocation Step" i have added "Execute Script" step.

    Pleas find the below script which i have used for the same.


    var fs = require('fs');

    var DOMParser = require('xmldom').DOMParser;

    var XMLSerializer = require('xmldom').XMLSerializer;

    var filename = "RPM2-rsp.xml";


    fs.readFile(filename, "utf-8", function(err, data) {


        var customerConfig = new DOMParser().parseFromString(data, "text/xml");


        var flight_info = customerConfig.getElementsByTagName("io30:FlightInfo");


        for (i = 0; i < flight_info.lenght; i++) {

            flight_info[i].setAttribute("CASSEquipmentCode", "C-045");



         var passengerColumn = customerConfig.getElementsByTagName("io13:PassengerColumn");


        for (i = 0; i < passengerColumn.length; i++) {

            passengerColumn[i].setAttribute("ProductId", "ASY");



        var purchase = customerConfig.getElementsByTagName("io13:Offer");

        for (i = 0; i < purchase.length; i++) {

            purchase[i].setAttribute("Purchasable", "true");



       var xmlString = new XMLSerializer().serializeToString(customerConfig);






        fs.unlink(filename, function(err) {

            if (err) throw err;

            console.log('File deleted!');



        fs.appendFile(filename, xmlString, function(err) {

            if (err) throw err;






    The code is working fine when executed in Eclipse IDE. But when using the same in the java script step, the code is not working.

    I am struck here. Am i missing something? Please guide me how to proceed further.

    Hello Ganga,


    How do you know the code is not working with DevTest? Are you getting any errors or exceptions?

    Hi Maria,

    There is no change in the response coming from the VS. Every time while executing, getting the response from live service only.

    Not sure whether it is bypassing the Execute Script step and directly going to Http Responder step from Live Invocation.

    Again tried using groovy script but still no changes. Getting error in the Execute Script step while testing the script. 


    Also once vsm is closed and while opening again, vsm is not getting opened.

    Getting the below error.


    Please find below the code used for the same.

    import com.itko.lisa.vse.stateful.model.TransientResponse;
    import com.itko.lisa.vse.stateful.model.Response;
    import com.itko.util.ParameterList;

    import org.w3c.dom.Document;
    import org.w3c.dom.NodeList;
    import org.w3c.dom.Node;
    import org.w3c.dom.Element;

    public class IMP {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

    try {
    Response rsp = new Response();
    String r=rsp.getBodyText();
    File fXmlFile = new File("C://Users//s18633//Documents//log//r_.xml");
    FileWriter fw= new FileWriter(fXmlFile);
    DocumentBuilderFactory dbFactory = DocumentBuilderFactory.newInstance();
    DocumentBuilder dBuilder = dbFactory.newDocumentBuilder();
    Document doc = dBuilder.parse(fXmlFile);



    System.out.println("Root element :" + doc.getDocumentElement().getNodeName());

    NodeList nList = doc.getElementsByTagName("*");


    for (int temp = 0; temp < nList.getLength(); temp++) {

    Node nNode = nList.item(temp);

    if (nNode.getNodeName() == "io30:FlightInfo") {

    Element eElement = (Element) nNode;
    eElement.setAttribute("CASSEquipmentCode", "C-045");

    if (nNode.getNodeName() == "io13:PassengerColumn") {

    Element eElement = (Element) nNode;
    Element.setAttribute("ProductId", "ASY");
    if (nNode.getNodeName() == "io13:Offer") {

    Element eElement = (Element) nNode;
    eElement.setAttribute("Purchasable", "true");

    Transformer transformer = TransformerFactory.newInstance().newTransformer();
    transformer.setOutputProperty(OutputKeys.INDENT, "yes");

    StreamResult result = new StreamResult(new StringWriter());
    DOMSource source = new DOMSource(doc);
    transformer.transform(source, result);

    String xmlString = result.getWriter().toString();

    ParameterList metaData = new ParameterList();
    xmlString.setMetaData( metaData );

    xmlString.setThinkTimeSpec( "100t" );

    List lst = new ArrayList();
    lst.add( xmlString );
    testExec.setStateValue("lisa.vse.response", TransientResponse.convert( lst ) );

    return "response body is: " + testExec.getStateValue("lisa.vse.response").get(0).getBodyAsString() +
    "\r\nMetaData is: " + testExec.getStateValue("lisa.vse.response").get(0).getMetaData().toString() +
    "\r\nThinkTime is: " + testExec.getStateValue("lisa.vse.response").get(0).getThinkTimeSpec();
    catch (Exception e) {



    Kindly let me know what i am missing. Is there any way to see the logs of each step being executed and how to test whether the script written is getting executed properly.

    If you are modifying live response, you need to use the property "" instead of "lisa.vse.response" in your code.


    Please try it and see if it helps.

    I tried that also.. but still getting following error.


    | Error in Script

    The sample code below will replace "1234" in the response with a property value "RanId". You need to do something like below in your code on 


    import com.itko.lisa.vse.stateful.model.TransientResponse;
    import com.itko.lisa.vse.stateful.model.Response;
    import java.util.List;

    List responseList = testExec.getStateObject("lisa.vse.response");
    TransientResponse response = responseList.get(0);
    String respText = testExec.parseInState(response.getBodyText());

    String newResponseBody = respText.replaceAll("1234", (testExec.getStateValue("RanID");) );

    // Setting the new body as response

    return true;
