Jenkins Maven SoapUI Java403 Forbidden error

By Gaurav

I have an automation which is written in SoapUI. I am kicking it off using Java/Maven/SoapUI API. Basically I can kick off soapUI automation from Java > Project > Run As> Maven Test. It works perfectly.

Now I committed my project to SVN and Integrating to local Jenkins. When I click Build now, I get following error.


23:11:49,514 DEBUG [HttpClientSupport$SoapUIHttpClient] Attempt 1 to execute request
23:11:49,514 DEBUG [SoapUIMultiThreadedHttpConnectionManager$SoapUIDefaultClientConnection] Sending request: POST /myApp/ProcessorService HTTP/1.1
23:11:50,377 DEBUG [SoapUIMultiThreadedHttpConnectionManager$SoapUIDefaultClientConnection] Receiving response: HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden
23:11:50,388 DEBUG [HttpClientSupport$SoapUIHttpClient] Connection can be kept alive for 15000 MILLISECONDS


One thing i wanted to to mention is that my SoapUI project has some security (.JKS) files. I am not sure it is causing the problem or not.

Also whenever I run a job through jenkins, it tries to create soapui-settings.xml in C: drive. As this is my organization laptop, I do not have access to create a file in C Drive. Not sure this could be a problem or not.

Please help.

External JavaScript file is not defined

By user3600725

For a web project, I’ve included a JavaScript file as a script src, as shown here.

<script src="xml2json.js"> //same directory as the web project

Next, I tried to invoke a method within xml2json, called xml_str2json.

 downloadUrl("ship_track_ajax.php", function(data) {

                  var xml_string = data.responseText; //an XML string
                  //A parser to transform XML string into a JSON object is required.
                  //Use convert XML to JSON with xml2json.js
                  var markers = xml2json.xml_str2json(xml_string);  

However, console log indicates “Uncaught ReferenceError: xml2json is not defined”, even though xml2json is included as a script src. Can anyone tell me as to what is wrong? Thanks.

What Craft Beer and Food Trucks Can Teach Us About the Power of Collaboration

By Rainmaker.FM

Your fellow Showrunners, even those serving the very same niche(s) that you’re serving, are not your enemies. 95 percent of the world has no idea what you’re doing as “podcaster,” so don’t turn a cold shoulder to the few who do.

This week’s episode of The Showrunner begins with a discussion about the value of meeting your listeners in person when you get the opportunity to do so. Hosts Jerod Morris and Jon Nastor offer up a few actionable ideas on how to bring the topic up with your audience.

Then, for the final time, they harken back to their experience at Podcast Movement for inspiration.

This leads to a conversation about the power of cooperation, collaboration, and craft beer (yum!).

Seriously: there is a lot to learn from how craft breweries have banded together in their battle for market share against the big, bad beer bullies. It’s similar to how food trucks have joined forces to survive despite numerous forces working against them.

As Roman Mars said at Podcast Movement, “95 percent of the world doesn’t know what the ***k we do.” This is one reason why podcasters must fight the urge to see competitors as threats, and instead see them as potential allies who will raise all boats in the ever-growing podcasting tide.

Then Jerod and Jon turn to their listener question, which could have carried an entire episode. “What do we do when our podcasts start to lose traction?” They both have a lot to say about this, with Jerod concluding the section with something akin to a locker room speech for scuffling Showrunners everywhere.

Finally, they bring you this week’s podcast recommendation from the podcaster herself: Sonia Thompson explains why you should check out her new show, I Am The One.
