Adding other scripting languages

In addition to ECMAScript, you can customize HCL OneTest API to use other scripting languages. The language must provide a .jar archive that implements the Java Scripting API and that you can embed in the product.

For more information about the Java Scripting API, see the Java Scripting Programmer's Guide.

Note: When you use a scripting language that is not provided by HCL OneTest API, the built-in functions and project custom functions are not available.

Example: Adding Groovy script to HCL OneTest API

For example, to add Groovy script to HCL OneTest API, complete the following steps:
  1. From the Groovy website, download the latest stable release.
  2. Extract the archive file to a local directory.
  3. Copy the groovy-x.x.x\embeddable\groovy-all-x.x.x.jar file into the HCL OneTest API installation directory:
    Note: If the Groovy download does not include an embeddable directory copy the following .jar files from the indy directory into the HCL OneTest API directory:
  4. Restart HCL OneTest API.
  5. Groovy is displayed as an option in the drop-down menu for the Function.
Note: An agent that runs stubs that include Groovy scripts must have the Groovy .jar file on its classpath. If the file is not present in the classpath, the agent throws a null pointer exception.
