Help required to install ReadyApi on Linux via command line/shell

Hi,

 

I need to install ready api on a linux system. The problem is I don't see any documentation for ReadyApi or SoapUI pro which refer to installation on Linux via command line.

 

I don't have the option to run it via X Windows, KDE, Gnome etc. Looking for a way to do the following via command line access via a putty session.

1. Install ReadyApi

2. Use floating license which is already available on a license server.

 

On this installation, I don't plan to use the Ready API user interface at all. My only objective is to run tests via testrunner.

 

Please help ASAP.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Gilu Gopi

Did you look at this page by any chance? This is what you needed,  I believe.

Yes, already looked at that. To add to the complexity, the linux account which need to run my scripts is a local account and hence can't use it to log on to a machine with GUI.

 

The documentation has given instructions how to use/activate license on headless machine. Did you try ?

I'm unable to do the steps mentioned in the URL. The account under which I want to run projects on Linux machine is a local account used by Jenkins Server. Now this account not available as a network user id to install on another machine with GUI and transfer over the license files to the machine I really need it on.

 

At this point, the only option I see is to get X Windows installed on Linux machine. I would have been useful if Ready API provides a straight forward way to install floating licenses via command line ( Just like the option it already have in command line to install fixed license)

Hi,

 

Finally I took the pain to configure X11 port forwarding on the headless Linux machine and installed floating license. Configuring the port forwarding for a dummy user was the tricky part, but thanksfully my Linux admin took care of that.

 

Thanks for all the responses to this thread.
