    What was going on when it hung?  Were you running Groovy script?


    I've noticed that if I run test cases and leave the Request/Response window open, it usually hangs.  I then have to kill SoapUI thru Task Manager and restart it.  I've lost any changes, so I've learned to Save All before running and hopefully I remember to close the Request/Response window.  This occurs on Open Source versions 4.5.0 and 5.5.0.  My script is for data driven testing and it loops, but it will hang either immediately or after 1 loop.

    You can see a video of this, which just happened to me earlier this week, on YouTube

      So far I don't see any solutions. it's happened to me many times.  I have tried many options but so far no proper solutions. ( the below I have used so far )

      Solutions 1: Increased memory size to 1GB 

      parameter : -Xms1024m

      locations : C:\Program Files\SmartBear\SoapUI-5.3.0\bin\SoapUI-5.4.0.vmoptions"

      Solutions 2: Enabled Autosave after 20 mins and before Autosave create a backup file ( atlist backup copy is not corrupted)  

      Solutions 3: Disabled autoSave options. and start using Save when I wanted to save

      Solutions 4: Disabled and closed unused project in your current workspace.

      Solutions 5: If you are running big load ( data-driven test ) where many loops are running, run this project with testRunner batch mode 

      Solutions 6: If your testSuite is running and you are doing any test Parallel please stop doing this. Many times it got hanged while sending request/response.  


      with combinations of 3,4,5, I found you will never have faced any issue. but I make mistake and soapUi hanged and Project filled with null null null ( which can't be reverted back )
