      I too have been having this problem in 1.5.0 and in the previous version. Before that things were fine. Is there a formal bug raised against this and when it the planned resolution?  I have to kill and restart the tool practically every day now.

    I noticed the same. Did you update the tool from 1.3 -> 1.5? I just did that and API logs seem to have lot's of errors. Something about events/listeners ...


    Anyway, I removed the whole installation, and then installed the 1.5.0 again and now it seems to be faster as there are no errors in logs...


    But now I have Hermes JMS issue as it is not working anymore :-(

    Hi ,

    is the problem resolved ? I have same issue before on mac. But I followed below  page, it never happen agian for me :


    1. Start ‘Activity Monitor’ and Force Kill your dead soapUI process. [Or use Command-Option-Escape to force quit it.]
    2. In Finder, /Applications/SmartBear/ > Show Package Contents.
    3. Edit /Applications/SmartBear/
    4. Uncomment this line# JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -Dsoapui.browser.disabled=true". [In other words, remove the "#" to stop it being a comment.]
    5. Edit /Applications/SmartBear/
    6. Add -Dsoapui.browser.disabled=true.
    7. Start soapUI.
