    5.4.0 is quite old version. Here is some release history article:

    It says for 5.4.0 following: ”SoapUI now uses Java 1.8.”. SoapUI 5.6.0 has following mention: ”Support for openJDK 12”

    I think Oracle renewed its licensing politics after JDK 11 which lead many organizations to move to OpenJDK implementations.
