Java Question

Can I use Citrus variable in Citrus static response adapter payload?

I am using static response endpoint adapter to return a mock service response taken from a resource file:

private void setAdapterResponse(StaticResponseEndpointAdapter adapter, String response) throws IOException{

URL url = Resources.getResource(response);
adapter.setMessagePayload(Resources.toString(url, Charsets.UTF_8));
}

@Autowired
private Endpoint helloSoapClient;

@Autowired
private WebServiceServer helloMockService;

@Autowired
private StaticResponseEndpointAdapter helloResponseAdapter;

@CitrusTest(name = "HELLO_WORLD")
public void sendAndReceiveMessage() throws IOException{

variable("randomRequestIdentifier", "9978111203033");
variable("constantDate", "201301010000");

setAdapterResponse(helloResponseAdapter, "templates/helloResponses/ReqIdGenerator.xml");

send(helloSoapClient)
.payload(new ClassPathResource("templates/helloRequests/HelloRequest028.xml"));
receive(helloSoapClient)
.payload(new ClassPathResource("templates/helloResponses/HelloResponse028.xml"));
}



private void setAdapterResponse(StaticResponseEndpointAdapter adapter, String response) throws IOException{

URL url = Resources.getResource(response);
adapter.setMessagePayload(Resources.toString(url, Charsets.UTF_8));
}


the file templates/helloResponses/ReqIdGenerator.xml contents is:

<xml>
<id>${randomRequestIdentifier}</id>
</xml>


I thought that variable should be replaced with its current value. Am I wrong? Is there a build-in mechanism to support variables in Citrus Endpoint Responses?

Answer

The static response adapter and endpoint adapters in general do not support test variables at the moment.
