How to change the used java version of SoapUI ?


We are running SoapUI 4.6.4 in the machine where jdk1.8.0_77 is installed .

And JAVA_HOME is set to C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_77.


But while starting the SoapUI ,it always uses the version 1.7.0_40

Could you let us know how to ensure that SoapUI uses the jdk1.8.0_77 ?

    SoapUI ships jre along with its installer and SOAPUI_HOME/bin/soapui.bat has the reference for the same.

    If you want to use external jdk other than default, then have backup of soapui.bat and edit the file to set your java home.

    I am also using Java 8 and have removed, after installation Ready!API 1.7.0, the


    directory and replaced it with the one from the JDK - works fine.
