Schemas

HCL OneTest™ API can handle many types of content. For the product to be able to interpret this variety of content types, it must associate a content format description, or schema with the content.

Some well-known content formats are built-in to HCL OneTest API, some are generated during synchronization, and others can be manually added.

Built-in schemas

The following schemas are provided with HCL OneTest API. Some are described by a single schema, while other types of content are associated with multiple schemas.

Content associated with a single, predefined schema are these:
  • XML
  • Base64
  • Bytes
  • CHIPS
  • DIME
  • Fedwire
  • Hex String
  • INACHA
  • Integra
  • JSON
  • MIME
  • OFAC
  • SWIFT
Content associated with multiple, pre-defined schemas are these:
  • ANSI ASC X12
  • ISO 20022
  • UN EDIFACT

Generated schemas

Some schemas can be added to the Schema Library during the synchronization process. For more information on synchronization, see Synchronization. Some schemas are specifically generated as part of a resource import process.
  • Active Enterprise, obtained from the TIBCO BusinessWorks projects that have been added in the Logical view.
  • BusinessWorks Private Processes, obtained from the TIBCO BusinessWorks projects that have been added in the Logical view.
  • SAP BAPI/RFC, added after these resources are imported or defined in an SAP system that is configured in the Logical View.
  • SAP IDocs, added after these resources are imported or defined in an SAP system that is configured in the Logical View.
  • Sofware AG webMethods.

Manually added schemas

The following schemas can be added manually:
  • COBOL Copybooks
  • DFDL
  • DTD
  • File Schemas
  • FIX Dictionary
  • ISO 8583
  • Java™ Objects
  • JSON Schema
  • .NET Objects
  • Protocol Buffers
    Note: While importing the protocol buffer schemas, the definition files are searched in the specified import directory path. If the definition file is not found in the specified directory, the parent directory is searched. The search operation continues until the file system root path is reached.
  • Record Layouts
  • Web URL
  • Web Form
  • WSDL
  • XSD
Important:
  • Where possible, put the schema source data into your HCL OneTest API project. This helps with portability of your project.
  • HCL OneTest API will cache external WSDL, XSD, JSON, and Copybook schema sources, their external dependencies, or both into a /Schemas/ folder inside a JAR file.
  • Changes to the external schema data source are not reflected in the project's test artifacts until the project is manually synchronized with the schema source. Schema source data that is stored inside the project is loaded upon first use.
