Re: [QF-Test] Using a generic procedure for SQL UPDATE and INSERT where number of elements is variable.
Hi, you can make such procedures dynamic. Let's say you specify a procedure with the parameters: column1 = col1 value1 = val1 column2 = col2 value2 = val2 etc. Then your procedure could contain a script building the SQL statement like this: Server script (Jython): maxVars = 100 dbUpdateCall_Part1 = "insert into table values(" cols =  values =  for i in range(1,maxVars): try: column = rc.lookup("column" + str(i)) value = rc.lookup("value" + str(i)) if column: cols.append(column) values.append(value) except: break fullCall = dbUpdateCall_Part1 for col in cols: fullCall = fullCall + col + "," #:-1 should delete the last comma which is too much fullCall = fullCall[:-1] + ") VALUES (" for val in values: fullCall = fullCall + "'" + val + "'," #:-1 should delete the last comma which is too much fullCall = fullCall[:-1] + ")" #print "Full Call", fullCall rc.setLocal("fullDBCall", fullCall) --> At end the variable "fullDBCall" should contain a command like: insert into table values(column1,column2) values ('val1','val2') Then put that call to a procedure call of "qfs.database.executeStatement" and send the statement to your database. As you can see in the script above, you can specify at maximumum 100 columnX and valueX pairs, which will be treated in the for loop. Best Regards, Martin Am 31.01.2015 um 00:20 schrieb Rick Brasche:
Happy Friday, everyone. In a number of recent automation scripts we’ve been requested to create, text information on the screen is fetched and written to a SQL table. In the past, we had 4 text elements we read per page, and created a generic INSERT INTO procedure that listed 4 columns and 4 variables. We have a similar one that does UPDATE as well. My current project has one page that has 5 text elements to a single record, another page that has three, another that has 10. Another project has similar variety. Can I write a generic database procedure that will allow me to assign the necessary columns at the specific test procedure call? So far it only allows what I explicitly write the SQL to be. If I specify 4 columns and 4 values, it has to be 4 in the procedure call. Or do I just have to accept that I will write separate statements for each page as needed, or write three generics (three columns, two columns, 1 column) and repeatedly call as many as needed to get the desired number of UPDATE or INSERTs? I’m really new at SQL so if there’s an obvious query solution, please don’t judge too harshly J Thanks in advance, have a good weekend.
