ALM Service Wrapper Part 2

Following is the Example that demonstrates how to use the ALM Service Wrapper.


//How to write

//Step1

Download the JACOB project

Note that, if your machine is either 32 or 64 bit OS, you should use jacob-(version)-x86.dll in your project.

Add the jacob-(version)-x86.dll file in your project Root Directory.
or
Place it in any directory and use the below code to load the DLL file.

System.setProperty("jacob.dll.path""D:\\jacob-1.17-M2-x86.dll");

LibraryLoader.loadJacobLibrary();

NOTE:  Many users are experiencing issues with combination of 64bit JDK+ JACOB 32bit dll.
To avoid this issue, use JDK 32bit on a 64bit machine.




//Step2: The following is the method of writing the code

ALMServiceWrapper wrapper = new ALMServiceWrapper(url);
wrapper.connect(username,password, domain, project);
wrapper.updateResult(pathToTestSetFolder, testSetName, testSetID, testCaseName, result);
wrapper.close();


Example for: Creating New Defect, Adding TestCase Run, Attaching Files, Add Execution Steps


//Tested Code on my machine
ALMServiceWrapper wrapper = new ALMServiceWrapper(    "http://localhost:8081/qcbin");
wrapper.connect("admin""admin""DEFAULT""SampleProject");

wrapper.updateResult("SampleTestSetFolder""TestSet1", 92, "Logout",
                        StatusAs.FAILED);

wrapper.updateResult("SampleTestSetFolder\\SubTestSetFolder1",
                        "TestSet1", 61, "Logout", StatusAs.PASSED);

wrapper.updateResult("SampleTestSetFolder\\SubTestSetFolder1",
                        "TestSet3", 62, "Login", StatusAs.BLOCKED);
wrapper.close();

            Thread.sleep(3000);
            driver.findElement(By.id("user_login")).clear();
            driver.findElement(By.id("user_login")).sendKeys("admin");
            // Enter Password
            driver.findElement(By.id("user_pass")).clear();
            driver.findElement(By.id("user_pass")).sendKeys("demo123");
            // Click on Submit button
            driver.findElement(By.id("wp-submit")).submit();
            updateResults();
            System.out.println("Done Updating Results");
      }

      public void updateResults() throws ALMServiceException {
            ALMServiceWrapper wrapper = new ALMServiceWrapper(
                        "http://localhost:8081/qcbin");
            wrapper.connect("admin""admin""DEFAULT""SampleProject");
            wrapper.updateResult("SampleTestSetFolder\\SubTestSetFolder1",
                        "TestSet3", 62, "Login", StatusAs.PASSED);
            wrapper.close();
      }
     
      @AfterClass
      public void close(){
            driver.quit();
      }
}

    1. Hi,

      Make sure that you have loaded the jacob library using below code, and also add the jacob.jar to your build path.

      Ex:
      System.setProperty("jacob.dll.path", "D:\\jacob-1.17-M2-x86.dll");
      LibraryLoader.loadJacobLibrary();

  5. I have got the error resolved, to my surprise the jacob project did not contain the ALM Service Wrapper, but now stuck with another issue: I am getting this error even though i have registered the OTAClient.dll (registered from SysWoW64 folder but didnt work so registered with System32 folder, but still didnt work):

    1. Hi,

      We are involved in many other projects due to which we could not reply quickly, this usually doesn't happen unless the team is completely busy.

      Answering to your questions:

      The Jacob project does not contain the ALM Service Wrapper API, Jacob itself is a different project. The ALM Service Wrapper is developed by us(ATU Blog Contributors), you have to download this API from the links provided in the blog.

      If your OS is 64 bit, then the OTAClient.dll must be registered from System32 folder. I have updated the ALM Service Wrapper Part 1 post which describes how to register the dll in a 64bit machine.

      Once it is registered, you can use the API to interact with QC/ALM.

      Note that, if your machine is either 32 or 64 bit OS, you should use jacob-(version)-x86.dll in your project.

    1. Hi,

      The API accepts the tcname as its parameter. You can check the javadocs for complete API.

    2. I was going through API docs. Do you recommend to use any other methods to approach for this solution?

    3. Do you think I can get more flexibility to select or filter out based on what columns I need using TestSetTreeManager or ListWrapper? Anyhelp to point me out to the right direction is really appreciated. My projcet just need to update status based on Test Config Name as arg4. Really appreciated your reply.

      Delete
    4. The ALM Service Wrapper is built around certain entities of QC/ALM OTA API. Accepting TC Name as the parameter is the generic approach for updating result of a particular Test Case.

      For your question i would like to know how does the Test Config help in achieving your task - Can you describe a little more on this ?

    3. Check your network connection - if you can access ALM through Browser. Also check with java's HttpConnection class.
      If you are in a proxy network use the below code for setting proxy property.


      System.setProperty("http.proxyHost", "proxyname");
      System.setProperty("http.proxyPort", "proxyport");

      or

      System.setProperty("https.proxyHost", "proxyname");
      System.setProperty("https.proxyPort", "proxyport");

      The complete ALM url must be given as a parameter to ALMServiceWrapper instance : https://..../qcbin

      Solution for the above issue:-

      1-Search for "tdconnect.exe" in your computer and delete all the tconnector.exe ,if you have any in ur system.
      2-Go to ALM home page and select tools option
      3-Download HP ALM Connectivity tool and install it.
      4-Register OTAClient.dll file from Command Prompt as mentioned in first part of this post.
      5-Give the full url till\qcbin

      It should work fine now.

      There should not be any issues with the above code unless there is some missing field in QC and which is available in ALM. Instead of adding all the fields as done above, try to set only certain fields which are in QC and see if it works.

    1. Hello,

      1. Yes, you can execute through ALM using VXAPI feature - try ALM's help file to understand its usage
      2. After downloading the JACOB, add the jar file to your eclipse build path
      3. A simple google search "how to add jar files to eclipse build path" should help you

    1. When you open QC/ALM in IE browser for the first time - It will require certain components to be available in your machine - It will download all the required files. If this is unsuccessful, you cannot access QC/ALM in your machine.

  70. I was able to get by the Invalid Username or Password error. It appears the QC servers were upgraded and needed to download new versions of the dlls.

  71. In HP UFT we have a Test Lab Test Execution Step status = micWarning, which will set the Step Status = Warning.
    How can we do this with the ALM ServiceWrapper? I don't see that status.

    For example:
    wrapper.addStep(testRun, "Step Name", StatusAs.WARNING, "my Description", "exp", "actual");

  73. Hi ATU Team,

    I am getting the same error as above in method createTestCaseRunAndTestCaseExecutionSteps() esp. when trying to add test step for the run using the example code "Create a new Run, Add the Steps for this Run and Attach a File"

    Exception in thread "main" com.jacob.com.ComFailException: Invoke of: Name
    Source:
    Description: You do not have the required permissions to execute this action.

    Can anyone of you please help ? What could be the reason ? It successfully updated the test case status for the example code which updates "// Update Test Case Result and Attach a File " section but throws the above error for code which "//Create a new Run, Add the Steps for this Run and Attach a File". I am not sure why it has permission to update status but not to add test steps and update it ??

  74. Dear Friends,

    Im stuck in the very beginning stage. Im unable to find the OTACLIENT.DLL at all.

    I enabled the hidden AppData (C:\Users\karaja****\AppData\Local\HP\ALM-Client\svmdc2***\merged-setup_a) folder and wasnt able to find the .dll file.

    However, I did notice the OTACLient info in the file 'merged-setup_a' (Config file ?).

    ShortName=OTAClient.dll
    URLName=%URL%/Install/OTAClient.lld


    Also, I tried the command regsvr32 OTACLIENT.dll and encountered the below exception.

    The Module 'OTACLIENT.dll'
    make sure the binary is stored at the specified path '
    The specified module could not be found


    Sorry If im missing something in here. Your response would be greatly appreciated.

    Kind regards,
    Karthik

  78. Hi,

    I must congratulate you guys for
    creating this wonderful easy library to use the QC OTA API.

    I am having a problem with your ALMServiceWrapper.
    I found that one of the Dispatch call is not working when trying to create a new Bug.

    Here are the statements :

    Dispatch bugFactory = Dispatch.call( activexObject, "BugFactory").toDispatch();
    Dispatch bug = Dispatch.call( bugFactory, "AddItem", new Object[]{""} ).toDispatch();

    The call to "AddItem" complains of wrong type. Here is the exception message :

    Exception in thread "main" com.jacob.com.ComFailException: Invoke of: AddItem
    Source:
    Description: Parameter Type is Invalid

    My HP ALM version is 12.01.
    Using 1.18 of Jacob Java-COM bridge.

    Any help will be gratefully appreciated.

    cheers,
    jay
