Launch ReadyAPI! In Debug Mode By Default?



Currently if I try and hit the debug button on a groovyscript I get a warning dialogue that SoapUI needs to restart to enable the debug function - I don't remember it working like this several versions ago.


I was wondering if there's anyway to launch SoapUI in debug mode by default so I don't have to keep restarting it?


As I say - I don't remember having to restart to launch debug on previous versions - but I could be mistaken.


I've checked the Preferences - but I couldn't see anything that would be relevant.


Thanks in advance,

      Thankyou - thats it!


      Just so it saves anyone else finding the page.


      Navigate to the ReadyAPI.vmoptions file saved within \\Program Files\SmartBear\ReadyAPI-x.x.x\bin\ReadyAPI.vmoptions


      add the line '-agentlib:jdwp=transport=dt_shmem,suspend=n,server=y' to the file and save.


      Its a read only file so you might have to overwrite the complete file rather than edit it to save any changes.
