How to get Test Case Detail from testlink using TestLink Java API?

2:47 PM

Getting test case detail from testlink using API is quite needful when displaying results in Reports.

To get test case related detail you will need testlink-java-api.

Prerequisite:


  1. TestLink-Java-API
  2. Java 1.7 or higher
  3. Maven

Since, TestLink-Java-API depends on mulitple other jars, it ia adviceable to create a Maven project and add the below dependencies in POM.XML


<dependencies>
  <!-- Commons APIs -->
  <dependency>
   <groupId>commons-lang</groupId>
   <artifactId>commons-lang</artifactId>
   <version>2.6</version>
   <type>jar</type>
   <scope>compile</scope>
  </dependency>
  <dependency>
   <groupId>commons-io</groupId>
   <artifactId>commons-io</artifactId>
   <version>2.4</version>
   <type>jar</type>
   <scope>compile</scope>
  </dependency>
  <!-- Logging APIs -->
  <dependency>
   <groupId>org.slf4j</groupId>
   <artifactId>slf4j-simple</artifactId>
   <version>1.7.21</version>
  </dependency>
  <!-- Configuration APIs -->
  <dependency>
   <groupId>commons-configuration</groupId>
   <artifactId>commons-configuration</artifactId>
   <version>1.10</version>
  </dependency>
  <!-- XML-RPC related APIs -->
  <dependency>
   <groupId>org.apache.xmlrpc</groupId>
   <artifactId>xmlrpc-common</artifactId>
   <version>3.1.3</version>
   <type>jar</type>
   <scope>compile</scope>
  </dependency>
  <dependency>
   <groupId>xml-apis</groupId>
   <artifactId>xml-apis</artifactId>
   <version>2.0.2</version>
   <type>jar</type>
   <scope>compile</scope>
  </dependency>
  <dependency>
   <groupId>commons-httpclient</groupId>
   <artifactId>commons-httpclient</artifactId>
   <version>3.1</version>
   <type>jar</type>
   <scope>compile</scope>
  </dependency>
  <dependency>
   <groupId>br.eti.kinoshita</groupId>
   <artifactId>testlink-java-api</artifactId>
   <version>1.9.14-0</version>
  </dependency>
<dependencies>


Use the below code to retrieve Test case description, Steps to execute, Expected results etc. using External test case id.


public void getTestDetailFromTestLink() {
  String testCaseDescription = "", expectedResults = "", steps = "";
  URL url;
  try {
   url = new URL("http://localhost/testlink/lib/api/xmlrpc/v1/xmlrpc.php");

   String devKey = "5062c3fertf9b8886e0edd0ffdf6b14";
   TestLinkAPI api = new TestLinkAPI(url, devKey);
   TestCase tCase = api.getTestCaseByExternalId("P1-46039", 1);

   testCaseDescription = tCase.getSummary();

   List<TestCaseStep> list = tCase.getSteps();
   Iterator<TestCaseStep> itr = list.iterator();
   while (itr.hasNext()) {
    TestCaseStep tcs = itr.next();
    expectedResults = tcs.getExpectedResults();
    steps = tcs.getActions();

   }
  } catch (Exception e) {
   e.printStackTrace();
  }

  System.out.println("Description :"+testCaseDescription);
  System.out.println("Expected Result :"expectedResults);
  System.out.println("Steps to Execute :"+steps);
  
 }


Above code produces the below output.

Description :Verify that on selecting Die Hard Techy from Side menu takes user to blog screen.

Expected Result :User should be navigated to Screen.

Steps to Execute :1.Open DieHardTechy website. 2.Select Die Hard Techy.
