            jakarta.servlet with Tomcat 9 - Not Found Issue
            Asked 2022-Mar-24 at 09:19

            I have a application which I am running using eclipse and tomcat 9 server. When I run the application, its opens then index.html page in browser, but the API's called inside index page are erroring with 404 status.

            I tried multiple things from various stackoverflow page but nothing seems to work.

            I have a Httpservlet with following declaration



            Answered 2022-Mar-24 at 09:19

            You're declaring a dependency on Servlet Spec 5.0 (and explicitly state that you're using a Jakarta servlet).

            Thus, it's mandatory that you're using Tomcat 10. Works as declared/designed. Not an issue.



            Using SoftAssert with Parallel Execution in TestNG produces unexpected results
            Asked 2022-Mar-15 at 17:25

            I am using the rest-assured library to test our REST api that deals with data on sports. In short I have 2 different @Test methods to call per sport, one @Test method to make multiple GET requests to gather all athlete image urls and store in a static ArrayList, and the other method to instantiate a SoftAssert object and actually call all of the url's in a for loop and soft assert a 200 response code. I then do a assertAll() at the end of the 2nd test method.

            For example - I have a @Test getSoccerAthletes() which gathers all the urls from the response, the method will repeat until all athlete urls are gathered as the response is limited to 250 athletes at a time. After this method finishes, then the 2nd @Test method for Soccer will execute, it is named testSoccerAthletes() and you can see that it uses dependsOnMethods. Below is the setup.

            Further research confirmed my theory about the thread-safety issues. I was able to conclude that the issue has nothing to do with SoftAssert and everything to do with rest-assured not being thread-safe. That information can be found here -->

            I was able to find a thread-local branch in which someone kindly did the work to make rest-assured thread-safe. I downloaded 2 files RestAssuredThreadLocal and RestAssuredThreadLocalImpl which can be seen here -->

            After downloading those 2 files, there were some errors that needed resolved and some deprecated methods needed replaced. After that I was able to successfully run my rest-assured tests in parallel with TestNG with the correct results.



            Can Rest-Assured's response payload be stored and used across multiple classes?
            Asked 2022-Mar-13 at 02:17

            With Rest-Assured, I send a GET request and get the correct response as requested. I am able to then assert that the correct HTTP status code is returned.



            Answered 2022-Mar-13 at 02:17

            Having public static variables is not a good idea. In addition, the Response variable in RestUtil has no relationship to the one in MyClass, so it is null. A better approach is to pass the Response into your util method such as:



            Serenity Cucumber 7 parallel execution not working
            Asked 2022-Feb-23 at 01:01

            looking for help to execute cucumber 7 in parallel. My project is serenity with cucumber and java. In this link it is showing that it is possible to run but tried different combination and looks like I missed something.

            Here is my pom.xml file:

            Find the solution for parallel execution with cucumber 7 and serenity junit 4. Below pom.xml is tested and working to execute parallel. According to this pom.xml to execute two ways:

            1. locally - add to your runner in tags tag you want to run and then execute this command mvn clean verify

            2. mvn clean verify -Dtags="@yourtagHere"

            How do I force Quarkus to use test/resources/ for a QuarkusIntegrationTest?
            Asked 2022-Jan-24 at 10:23

            I'm using quarkus with jdbc + flyway and a frontend. Now I want to build an integration test with a dev services db and a selenium frontend test.

            In tests annotated with @QuarkusTest I can see that the flyway scripts from src/main/resources/db/migration/ and src/test/resources/db/migration/ are executed.

            But for the selenium frontend tests I need to annotate the tests with @QuarkusIntegrationTest and here only the flyway scripts from src/test/resources/db/migration/ are executed. How can I add src/main/resources/db/migration/ as well?

            My setup:



            Answered 2022-Jan-24 at 10:11

            That won't work with @QuarkusIntegrationTest, because this test actually executes the produced JAR and therefore the resources are loaded from inside the JAR itself and not the filesystem.

            Asked 2021-Dec-07 at 16:38

            I am getting the 'java.lang.ClassNotFoundException' exception while running maven test in my project. The same program works fine if @RunWith is tagged to (Cucumber.class) but apparently not with @Runwith(CucumberWithSerenity.class). I am not sure why issue is appearing!

            Note: I did refer the similar post to rectify the issue but apparently none helped me yet.

            Answered 2021-Dec-07 at 16:38

            You should remove all occurences of cucumber artifacts from your pom. Serenity artifacts already have dependencies to the required cucumber versions. The lates supported version is 6.11.

            When you put the same artifact of different version to your root pom, you override that. Hence there is version inconsistency take the place.

            Error integration Allure reporting with Jenkins. Can't find allure commandline
            Asked 2021-Nov-26 at 15:41

            Please help, I just have no clue what is going wrong, I've tried everything... This is a QA test project, based on java17, maven, testng. Integrеtion between Jenkins and Allure doesn't work, what is going wrong?

            I have post condition in Jenkins file :



            Answered 2021-Nov-26 at 15:41

            Allure jenkins install config

            I found the answer by myself, this is some kind of issue in fresh versions of allure-commandline, try to :

            1. install old version, for instance 2.8.0
            2. then you could install any new version

            Seems like in old version, while installation, it's creating path(for ubuntu in my case) in correct direction, and then just update with a new one... Or you can insert installation directory manually and initially install a new version



            quarkus: reactive mutiny returns object Uni reference instead of string value
            Asked 2021-Nov-23 at 06:10

            I'm getting this resource when I'm reaching my endpoint:



            Answered 2021-Nov-23 at 06:10

            RESTEasy, and the quarkus-resteasy extension, don't know what Uni is and cannot serialize it properly.

            If you can, I'd advice you to switch to quarkus-resteasy-reactive (and quarkus-resteasy-reactive-jackson) if you're using reactive types.

            If you need the classic RESTEasy, add quarkus-resteasy-mutiny to your dependencies.
