kandi X-RAY | karate Summary

karate is a Java library. karate has no bugs, it has no vulnerabilities, it has build file available, it has a Permissive License and it has high support. You can download it from GitHub, Maven.

. Karate is the only open-source tool to combine API test-automation, [mocks] karate-netty), [performance-testing] karate-gatling) and even [UI automation] karate-core) into a single, unified framework. The BDD syntax popularized by Cucumber is language-neutral, and easy for even non-programmers. Assertions and HTML reports are built-in, and you can run tests in parallel for speed. There’s also a cross-platform [stand-alone executable] karate-netty#standalone-jar) for teams not comfortable with Java. You don’t have to compile code. Just write tests in a simple, readable syntax - carefully designed for HTTP, JSON, GraphQL and XML. And you can mix API and [UI test-automation] karate-core) within the same test script. A [Java API] #java-api) also exists for those who prefer to programmatically integrate Karate’s rich automation and data-assertion capabilities.

            How to validate two primitive types in one answered API response with Karate
            Asked 2022-Mar-31 at 14:23

            I'm using Karate to validate an endpoint answer. And my API is answering with a key-value structure. The problem is the value could be a boolean or a string.

            How can I validate this with only one expression this OR with Karate?

            Answer example:



            Answered 2022-Mar-31 at 14:23

            This is the only way I can think of to solve this. Sometimes the Karate "patterns" can't be used. To be honest most APIs never have these kinds of schema variation.

            Is it possible to have Cucumber steps and Karate steps recognised at the same time in different feature files?
            Asked 2022-Mar-08 at 20:08

            I have a Java Framework that contains some Cucumber Feature Files. It also contains some Karate Feature Files.

            I have separate runners for each type of Feature File and both sets of tests run successfully.

            However, when I view the Feature Files in Intellij...it always looks as though either the Cucumber or the Karate Step definitions cannot be found.

            If I add ONLY a Karate dependency to the pom:



            Answered 2022-Mar-08 at 20:08

            IDEA uses a simple heuristics to determine which Cucumber version to use. If the latest version is detected, that one is used.

            However Karate depends on the older versions of Cucumber. So when using Karate and a recent version of Cucumber IDEA will ignore Karate.

            To fix this properly Peter would have to provide his own step definition annotations. And then IDEA could use those next to the ones from Cucumber.

            But that means waiting for Jetbrains which I imagine Peter is loath to do.

            Dealing with character variables containing semicolons in CSV files
            Asked 2022-Feb-16 at 03:00

            I have a file separated by semicolons in which one of the variables of type character contains semicolon inside it. The readr::read_csv2 function splits the contents of those variables that have semicolons into more columns, messing up the formatting of the file.

            For example, when using read_csv2 to open the file below, Bill's age column will show jogging, not 41.




            Answered 2022-Feb-16 at 02:27

            You can use the read.csv() function. But there would be some warning messages (or use suppressWarnings() to wrap around the read.csv() function). If you wish to avoid warning messages, using the scan() method in the next section.

            Selenium / Java : How to write element locator for an element with aria-selected=false
            Asked 2021-Nov-23 at 03:51

            We are unable to locate and click at an element with "aria-selected" = "false" on an HTML page. We have tried different way to write xpath locator and css selector but none of them worked. While inspecting a bit more on page, we found that this element has a "aria-selected="false" in it and when we click on it and it shows results then this value changes to "aria-selected="true"

            We have tried with below xpath:



            Answered 2021-Nov-23 at 03:51

            The ariaSelected property of the Element interface reflects the value of the aria-selected attribute, which indicates the current "selected" state of elements that have a selected state.

            Value: A DOMString with one of the following values:

            • true: The item is selected.
            • false: The item is not selected.

            Selected/unselected state of this WebElement attribute doesn't effects your tests.

            To locate the element you can you can use either of the following Locator Strategies:

            Goal: Match the check value is correct for 123S and 123O response in API

            First check the value on this location x.details[0].user.school.name[0].codeable.text if it is 123S then check if x.details[0].data.check value is abc

            Then check if the value on this location x.details[1].user.school.name[0].codeable.text is 123O then check if x.details[1].data.check is xyz

            The response in array inter changes it is not mandatory first element is 123S sometime API returns 123O as first array response.

            Sample JSON.

            How to check the status code of one API from karate-config.js?
            Asked 2021-Nov-17 at 16:57

            We have to call two APIs only once in whole project which is a pre-requisite for all other features to run. All features are using values set in userId and unitId.

            The first feature call is working fine but I am not sure how to add if condition on status code as only when the status code of first feature@test1 is 200 only then we want to call the second one else not.

            The below code displayed the value as

            User Id is -------------378

            But is not going in the if condition although this API returned response code as 200.

            It's not that simple and requires you to do some research. It is expected to be easy if you use the Karate Docker container and chrome (native) as the driver type. You can find more details here:

            Karate- Any non-ugly way to send API requests with malformed requests for each request body field?
            Asked 2021-Sep-13 at 15:28

            I have a strange problem for which I already have a solution for but it's VERY ugly. I am wondering if there is a better way to do it through Karate or JS. I am new at both so please bear with me.

            I am sending a POST call with a rather large request body (total of 19 fields). I have to purposefully send malformed requests for EACH field where instead of inputting a legitimate value for a key, I am putting garbage values (or removing the value altogether) and making sure I get a 400 back as expected.

            For example the request body is as follows (shortened for illustration purposes):

            Install karate

            If you are a Java developer - Karate requires at least [Java](http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html) 8 and then either [Maven](http://maven.apache.org), [Gradle](https://gradle.org), [Eclipse](#eclipse-quickstart) or [IntelliJ](https://github.com/intuit/karate/wiki/IDE-Support#intellij-community-edition) to be installed. Note that Karate works fine on OpenJDK. If you are new to programming or test-automation, refer to this video for [getting started with just the (free) IntelliJ Community Edition](https://youtu.be/W-af7Cd8cMc). Other options are the [quickstart](#quickstart) or the [standalone executable](karate-netty#standalone-jar). If you don’t want to use Java, you have the option of just downloading and extracting the [ZIP release](https://github.com/intuit/karate/wiki/ZIP-Release). Try this especially if you don’t have much experience with programming or test-automation. We recommend that you use the [Karate extension for Visual Studio Code](https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=kirkslota.karate-runner) - and with that, JavaScript, .NET and Python programmers will feel right at home. Visual Studio Code can be used for Java (or Maven) projects as well. One reason to use it is the excellent [debug support that we have for Karate](https://twitter.com/KarateDSL/status/1167533484560142336).
            It may be easier for you to use the Karate Maven archetype to create a skeleton project with one command. You can then skip the next few sections, as the pom.xml, recommended directory structure, sample test and [JUnit 5](#junit-5) runners - will be created for you. You can replace the values of com.mycompany and myproject as per your needs. This will create a folder called myproject (or whatever you set the name to).
            Refer to this video for [getting started with the free IntelliJ Community Edition](https://youtu.be/W-af7Cd8cMc). It simplifies the above process, since you only need to install IntelliJ. For Eclipse, refer to the wiki on [IDE Support](https://github.com/intuit/karate/wiki/IDE-Support).
