Re: Unable to start start after upgrade to 5.6

What is the java version used while invoking the tool. Looks like you are using lower version of java.

Hi @btolman,

 

@nmrao is right, you got troubles with your java version.

For information:

  • SoapUI 5.5 --> JRE 8
  • SoapUI 5.6 --> JRE 12

If you install SoapUI with the installer, the JRE is included (in my case on Windows, don't know for other distributions).

If you just copied files or renamed the JRE folder, you might have this kind of trouble.

Can you check both java version installed on you machine and the one used by SoapUI ?

 

Let us know.

 

 

David.
