Error while running ReadyAPI 2.4.0 Linux tarball package
Steps I have run:
1. my server is SUN solaris
2. transferred ReadyAPI-2.4.0-linux-bin.tar.gz to the server.
3. unzip the package
4. checked that the java environment is jdk1.8
5. run -> ./testrunner.sh <my soapui project.xml>
6. received error: Could not initialize class com.eviware.soapui.support.UISupport and also java.io.IOException: Problem reading font data.
1. does ReadyAPI-2.4.0-linux-bin.tar.gz support SUN solaris?
2. if yes, I suppose it is the package for headless machine so why do I need UISupport class?
please find attached the log
Apologies if I have misunderstood your question.
Here is a list of OS supported by ReadyAPI:
Windows 7 SP1 with convenience rollup update (KB3125574) or a later Windows operating system (32- or 64-bit).
Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 with convenience rollup update (KB3125574) or a later Windows Server operating system.
OS X 10.7.3 (Lion) or a later macOS operating system.
OS X Server 10.7 (Lion) or a later macOS Server operating system.
64-bit Oracle Linux 6 or later.
64-bit Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 or later.
64-bit Suse Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP2 or later.
Ubuntu Linux 10.04 or later.
Although it does not mention Solaris explicitly, it is still a unix OS, so not 100% sure if it will work.
UISupport class should not be there if the package is for a headless machine. Can you double-check if it's the correct package being installed?
Some debugging questions:
1. Is the file (testrunner.sh) you are trying to execute correct?
2. did you make this file executable? i.e chmod +x ./file_name?
Still not sure of your context. Could you explain more? i.e what is it you are trying to achieve? Is this task being achieved on a headless machine? What Solaris version is it? etc..
Thanks for your reply. Below is the link I used to download. It's Linux tarball as per the website.
Once I downloaded it, I ran gzip -d and tar to unzip the package. My server has jdk1.8 already so after unzip I ran ./testrunner.sh under Readyapi2.4.0/bin/ with my project XML. The testrunner.sh is executable. As you said, headless should not require Uisupport class. But when I run it, it complaint about unable to initiate the Uisupport class. So is there anything I need to do in the testrunner.sh file to disable initiation of the Uisupport class or anywhere else I need to change? Another error is problem finding the font.
Are you just trying to install ReadyAPI on a headless machine? if so, then you should be running this file? ./ReadyAPI-x64-2.4.0.sh -c
By the way, when running ReadyAPI-x64-2.4.0.sh , will it require internet connection to download anything?
It should install the package first so I don't think you need an internet connection for that. Are you an admin user on that headless machine? perhaps try sudo ./ReadyAPI-x64-2.4.0.sh
You should try to find system error logs as it hangs the installation.
I found an article that should help you.
And I am also curious for the tarball version, if it is a released one, it must have been tested and confirmed as a working version. but why I am getting this Uisupport class initialization error on a headless machine? And also the issue with font. Do I need to update anything? I am trying to install the licensed version as a POC in order to decide whether to buy the licensed version actually. And apparently the limitations are I don't have sudo root, and the box has no internet connection.
