The XPath builder helps you quickly build an XPath by selecting elements from a hierarchical representation of the message. The XPath builder opens when you add an XPath, or when you click an existing XPath.
The XPath builder can be used for both XML and JSON messages. The XPath language was originally designed for selecting nodes from XML, but since Parasoft Virtualize/SOAtest converts incoming requests to XML during processing, CTP (and Parasoft Virtualize/SOAtest) can apply XPaths to JSON messages as well as XML messages.
You can click any of the available elements, values, and attributes to build an XPath. Note that the corresponding XPath is automatically added to the XPath field (below the builder).
