createTestCase() issues using JAVAAPI

Postby dkwang » Wed Jan 15, 2014 11:51 pm

Hello TestLink gurus,

I'm currently trying out the testlink java api and have looked at some sample code of how to create a simple test case. I've found this example from http://testlinkjavaapi.sourceforge.net:

Code: Select all
    List<TestCaseStep> steps = new ArrayList<TestCaseStep>();
    TestCaseStep step = new TestCaseStep();
    step.setNumber(1);
    step.setExpectedResults("User name appeared in top menu.");
    step.setExecutionType(ExecutionType.MANUAL);
    step.setActions("Go to login screen and enter user credentials.");
    steps.add(step);
       
        TestCase tc = api.createTestCase(
            "TcName", // testCaseName
            new Integer(2), // testSuiteId
            new Integer(1), // testProjectId
            "admin", // authorLogin
            "No summary", // summary
            steps, // steps
            null, // preconditions
            TestImportance.HIGH, // importance
            ExecutionType.MANUAL, // execution
            new Integer(10), // order
            null, // internalId
            null, // checkDuplicatedName
            null); // actionOnDuplicatedName
   
    System.out.println("Test case with steps created");


I've created some simple calls to the api method's. Here's a snippet:
Code: Select all
    TestSuite ts = null;
    TestCase  tc = null;
    TestProject project = null;
    TestPlan tp = null;
 
 // Create a Test Project     
        try {
                project = api.createTestProject(
                                "TestLink Java API Test", //testProjectName
                                "TJAT", //testProjectPrefix
                                "Testing Java API Intergration", //notes
                                true, //enableRequirements
                                true, //enableTestPriority
                                true, //enableAutomation
                                false, //enableInventory
                                true, //isActive
                                false); //isPublic
        } catch (TestLinkAPIException e) {
                e.printStackTrace( System.err );
                System.exit(-1);
        }       
              
        // Create a Test Plan
        try {
             tp = api.createTestPlan("TestLink API Test Plan", "TestLink Java API Project", "Testing TestLink JAVA API", true, false);       
        } catch (TestLinkAPIException e) {
                e.printStackTrace( System.err );
                System.exit(-1);
        }       
       
        // Create Test Suite
        try {
           TestProject testLinkProject = api.getTestProjectByName("TestLink Java API Project");
           
           ts = api.createTestSuite(testLinkProject.getId(), "TestLink TestSuite", "Testing TestLink JAVA API library integration", null, 1, true, ActionOnDuplicate.CREATE_NEW_VERSION);
           System.out.println( "Created Test Suite: " + ts.getName() );
        } catch (TestLinkAPIException e) {
           e.printStackTrace( System.err );
           System.exit(1);
        }       
       
      // Create Test Case
        List<TestCaseStep> steps = new ArrayList<TestCaseStep>();
        TestCaseStep step = new TestCaseStep();
        step.setNumber(1);
        step.setExpectedResults("User name appeared in top menu.");
        step.setExecutionType(null);
        step.setActions("Go to login screen and enter user credentials.");
        steps.add(step);

        try {
        tc = api.createTestCase("TestLink TestCase", ts.getId(), project.getId(), "ValidUserLogin", "TestLink TestCase Summary", steps, null, null, null, new Integer(10), null, true, ActionOnDuplicate.GENERATE_NEW);
       } catch (TestLinkAPIException e) {
          e.printStackTrace( System.err );
          System.exit(1);
       }
   }


The problem I am encountering is that this appears to create the test case successfully, but the code throws an exception which prevents me from continuing to create additional test cases if needed. I've searched the forum for similar topics and the only one similar is from 2011 with no real concrete information on why this is or how to resolved (http://forum.testlink.org/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=4993).

Exception I am seeing is:

If someone could provide me with some insight of what I may be doing wrong in the call, that would really help me understand.

Thank You in advance for your precious time.

1. testlink version is always needed
2. in order to understand if issue is on java client (then fixing it is not in change of TestLink dev team) or in the php server side, it will be better if you
check with the PHP samples provided with TestLink if you can create test cases.
Try to contact author of javaapi
Have you follow advice present on testlinkjavaapi site?
=> This project is developed separately from TestLink. Issues should be reported here here.

Thank fman for your time in responding and correcting my subject line.

1. I'm working with version 1.9.
2. I'll not quite familiar with PHP, but will look at the samples provided to get a better understanding.
3. I'll try to contact the author of the api and hopefully get a response.
4. I'll post whatever I find, as it may help others.
