    Default GROOVY Script: List / Map Collection Problem

    Firstly, I'm new to Groovy so apologies in advance for any school boy errors in the below.

    I've created a script which I'm using to simulate the behaviour of a SOAP service in SOAP UI (as a mock service) for sprint testing purposes but am having problems when trying to iterate over a List I've created. The List is made up of a number of Maps, and each Map contains a List. It should look something like this:

    [[Rec: 1, Items: ["AB123","BC234","CD345"]],[Rec: 2, Items: ["AB123","BC234","CD345","DE456"]]]

    And this is the code I have to build up the List:

    def offerMap      = [:] 
    def outputList    = [] 
    def offerItemList = [] 
     
    def outputMap     = [:] 
    def outList       = [] 
     
    def item          = "" 
    def rec           = "" 
     
    offerItemList.add("AB123") 
    offerItemList.add("BC234") 
    offerItemList.add("CD345") 
     
    offerMap.put("Rec",1) 
    offerMap.put("Items",offerItemList) 
     
    outputList.add(offerMap) 
     
    log.info "OUT: outputList.size ${outputList.size()}" 
    log.info "OUT: offerItemList.size ${offerItemList.size()}" 
     
    offerMap.clear() 
    offerItemList.clear() 
     
    offerItemList.add("AB123") 
    offerItemList.add("BC234") 
    offerItemList.add("CD345") 
    offerItemList.add("DE456") 
     
    offerMap.put("Rec",2) 
    offerMap.put("Items",offerItemList) 
     
    outputList.add(offerMap) 
     
    log.info "OUT: outputList.size ${outputList.size()}" 
    log.info "OUT: offerItemList.size ${offerItemList.size()}"

    And this is the the code I have to iterate over the list:

    outputList.each { 
     
        log.info "OUT: outputList.size ${outputList.size()}" 
     
        outputMap.clear() 
        outputMap = it 
     
        row = outputMap.get("Rec") 
        log.info "OUT: REC ${rec}" 
     
        outList.clear() 
        outList = outputMap.get("Items") 
     
        outList.each { 
     
            item = it 
            log.info "OUT: Item ${item}" 
     
        } 
    }

    But this is not giving me the results I expect, first problem is that the .each loop for outputList appears to immediately be jumping to the second entry in the list, as witnessed from the output:

    Fri Nov 03 17:54:32 GMT 2017:INFO:OUT: outputList.size 1 
    Fri Nov 03 17:54:32 GMT 2017:INFO:OUT: offerItemList.size 3 
    Fri Nov 03 17:54:32 GMT 2017:INFO:OUT: outputList.size 2 
    Fri Nov 03 17:54:32 GMT 2017:INFO:OUT: offerItemList.size 4 
    Fri Nov 03 17:54:32 GMT 2017:INFO:OUT: outputList.size 2 
    Fri Nov 03 17:54:32 GMT 2017:INFO:OUT: REC 2 
    Fri Nov 03 17:54:32 GMT 2017:INFO:OUT: Item AB123 
    Fri Nov 03 17:54:32 GMT 2017:INFO:OUT: Item BC234 
    Fri Nov 03 17:54:32 GMT 2017:INFO:OUT: Item CD345 
    Fri Nov 03 17:54:32 GMT 2017:INFO:OUT: Item DE456 
    Fri Nov 03 17:54:32 GMT 2017:INFO:OUT: outputList.size 2 
    Fri Nov 03 17:54:32 GMT 2017:INFO:OUT: REC null

    I'm running out of ideas and fear I may be missing something fundamental due to my lack of experience with Groovy.

    If you can put me right, I'd be most grateful.

    TIA
