How to change default encoding to UTF-8 for entire application in SoapUI NG Pro in ReadyAPI1.6.0

I want to change the encoding to UTF-8 for all my tests in SOAP UI NG Pro. I am using readyAPI v1.6.0. 

I know that it can be changed in the properties field in the lower left corner of the SoapUI window, by changing the encoding for each individual request/test step, but this going to be a lot of efforts so I would like to know if there is a way of changing it for entire application.

 

Also, I want to know that when encoding is not explicitly set to UTF-8 or iso-8859-1, what is the default setting?? I am assuming it is Cp1252 as the the System Properties visible in Ready! API from the Help menu, shows file.encoding= Cp1252.  Is it correct??  If yes then changing this file.encoding to UTF-8 might solve my problem but then I want to know how to edit the system properties.

 

Thanks in advance.

Re: How to change default encoding to UTF-8 for entire application in SoapUI NG Pro in ReadyAPI1.6.0

Hi,

 

You change the default file encoding in SoapUI through the below mentioned path

"%SOAPUI_HOME%"\bin\SoapUI-X.0.0.vmoptions

 

1. Edit the above mentioned file by adding the entry as "-Dfile.encoding=UTF8" (without quotes)

2. Save the file

3. Restart the SoapUI

 

This is can be re-checked by Help --> System Properties --> file.encoding

Hi,

 

I am using ReadyAPI 1.9.0-m-SNAPSHOT version. Here I am also trying to change encoding value to UTF8. But it is not reflecting inside system.properties.

 

You can download this version from here -
