Retrieving the IP address of a virtual user

This example shows how to retrieve the local IP address of a virtual user. Retrieving IP addresses is particularly useful when virtual users are using IP aliases.
The following custom code retrieves the IP address that was assigned to a virtual user:
import java.net.InetAddress;
import com.ibm.rational.test.lt.kernel.IDataArea;
import com.ibm.rational.test.lt.kernel.services.ITestLogManager;
import com.ibm.rational.test.lt.kernel.services.IVirtualUserInfo;

public String exec(ITestExecutionServices tes, String[] args) {
	IVirtualUserInfo vui = (IVirtualUserInfo) tes.findDataArea(IDataArea.VIRTUALUSER).get(IVirtualUserInfo.KEY);
	ITestLogManager tlm = tes.getTestLogManager();

	if (vui != null) {
		String localAddr = null;
		InetAddress ipAddr = vui.getIPAddress();
		if (ipAddr != null)
			localAddr = ipAddr.toString();
		tlm.reportMessage("IPAlias address is " + (localAddr != null ? localAddr : "not set"));
		return localAddr;
	}
else
		return ("Virtual User Info not found");
}
