In addition to the 45 functions included with Rational Integration Tester, we’ve built up a library of additional functions that have been useful on projects and for developing our skills using the tool. We used a custom function, the trim tool, when we had to use a regular expression to capture a dynamic value. The function is in the format (where to trim, number of characters to trim, what to trim). An example of this would be (front, 3, %%dynamicResult%%). We can then save this new value out to a tag so that it can be used in a message or other function.

This proved to be very useful in the Regular Expression we had to use recently (see previous post).
