Java Memory Leak with SOAP UI
Sometimes, when you use SOAP UI too much, you could face some memory leak issue. This will exit or freeze the tool without any alert.
In order to avoid this kind of problem, the user is able to modify the Java memory used by SOAP UI. To do that, you must go in the installation repository, by default it’s C:\Program Files\eviware\soapUI-2.5.1\, in the bin directory. There, you will find the file soapui.bat. You cane dit this file and replace the following line :
set JAVA_OPTS=-Xms128m –Xmx256m -Dsoapui.properties=soapui.properties "-Dsoapui.home=%SOAPUI_HOME%\"
by this one:
set JAVA_OPTS=-Xms256m –Xmx728m -Dsoapui.properties=soapui.properties "-Dsoapui.home=%SOAPUI_HOME%\"
If you have more than 2Go of RAM installed on your computer, you could also set the memory to –Xmx1024m. You will meet fewer problems in this case and the tool will not break down.
