    Hello normgean 


    Are you copy/pasting that line from the internet or something into a groovy script test step?  I copied and pasted your example into a script and it failed for me too.  If I actually type that line in and run the script, I get an expected result of a log line being displayed. 


    If you are actually typing that value into a script, could you have changed fonts or something other than the default provided by SoapUI?  The double quote characters look a little odd to me on a Windows computer and that makes me wonder if there is some alternate character set involved and that is not an actual ASCII double quote.


    When I type it in myself and view the hexadecimal representation of what I typed in a separate code editor I get what I expect...   HEX 22 = double quotes character.  Your example for the " character yields a HEX 94 = right double quotation mark.  Maybe SoapUI does not interpret that correctly or it only expects HEX 22 variant of a double quotes character instead of HEX 94.
