When I started SoapUI 5.5.0 today, an upgrade to 5.6.0 was offered.
However, after the upgrade, SoapUI doesn't start; it fails with this error:
java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: com/eviware/soapui/SoapUI has been compiled by a more recent version of the Java Runtime (class file version 53.0), this version of the Java Runtime only recognizes class file versions up to 52.0
I checked the jre contained within SoapUI; it is still "1.8.0_181", but obviously at least Java 9 is required.
I have a jre as a child of my parent SoapUI folder (i.e. C:\Program Files\Smartbear\SoapUI-5.6.0\jre) but I'm running windows.
What operating system are you running?
rather than mess about with directories you could just install java properly instead? that would save all the hassle....
if this helped answer the post, could you please mark it as 'solved'? Also if you consider whether the title of your post is relevant? Perhaps if the post is solved, it might make sense to update the Subject header field of the post to something more descriptive? This will help people when searching for problems. Ta
