    Hi All,

    I tried to achieve the below new requirement with the beanshell script. But i'm facing script errors and logic is failing miserably. Please find the below requirement and help me to achieve it.

    • We'll receive the Orders details in the request message and they're dynamic.
      • So first, these details should be captured from the request and send them in response.
      • Secondly, based on the one particular item number value present in the order details, we need to send the additional tags and values in the response message. For other orders, these additional tags should not come.

    Currently, with help of executable script step- beanshell script, I can able to capture the order details from the request and send them in response. But, I'm failing to achieve the second step.

    Please find attached the logic i used and part of the xml's screenshot.

    So, if the itemnumber value "845005" comes in the request, we should add the SalesOrderStatusRequestSerialNumbers details additionally and send in the response. For all other orders, we should not send the SalesOrderStatusRequestSerialNumbers details.

    In your requirements I don 't see any reason why you would have to use scripting to realize this? Can all be done by OOTB steps and filters.

    How have you created the basic version of your virtual service? Using request response pairs? In that case the virtual service image creation wizard should have recognized most of the data elements already as magic strings and should have replaced actual values in your response already with {{request_...}} tags.

    Let us know why the standard functionality and features cannot be used in your case?

    Hi Danny,

    Thanks for your reply. Yes, it recognized all the elements and i'm able to select the values.
    request_<some elements>_ItemNumber_1= 845005
    request_<some elements>_ItemNumber_2= 847800
    request_<some elements>_ItemNumber_3= 847716
    request_<some elements>_ItemNumber_4= 847694

    But, to check for the specific condition, i'm getting the errors.

    For example:- 

    //noofitems has the count of item numbers
    for (int i = 1; i <=noofitems; i ++) {
    if ("{{request_<someelements>_ItemNumber_" + (i) + "}}".eqauls("845005")){     --> I'm getting the error in this line
    //some logic
    //some logic

    The parsing of {{}} gets done before the execution of the script, so "i" won't have a value. If the name of a property you needs is composed dynamically then you need to use testExec.getStateValue(<aJavaStringExpression>).

    So try:


    if (testExec.getStateValue("request_<someelements>_ItemNumber_" + i).equals("845005")) {
