Applies to ReadyAPI 2.8, last modified on August 16, 2019

This topic describes variables that ReadyAPI passes to the Java virtual machine to prepare the environment.

-XX:MinHeapFreeRatio=<value>

Specifies the minimum percentage of free heap space after the garbage collector event to avoid shrinking.

Example:

-XX:MinHeapFreeRatio=20

-XX:MaxHeapFreeRatio=<value>

Specifies the maximum percentage of free heap space after the garbage collector event to avoid shrinking.

Example:

-XX:MaxHeapFreeRatio=40

-XX:MaxPermSize=<value>

Specifies the size of the permanent generation to avoid PermGen errors.

Append k or K to specify the value in kilobytes, and m or M to specify the value in megabytes.

Example:

-XX:MaxPermSize=256m

-Xms<value>

Specifies the initial size of the heap (memory) to be used in bytes.

Append k or K to specify the value in kilobytes, and m or M to specify the value in megabytes.

Example:

-Xms128m

-Xmx<value>

Specifies the maximum size of the heap (memory) to be used in bytes. Default value: 4000m.

Append k or K to specify the value in kilobytes, and m or M to specify the value in megabytes.

Example:

-Xmx1000m

-Dsoapui.properties=<value>

Specifies the file that contains global properties that correspond to the Preferences > Global Properties and Preferences > JDBC drivers.

Example:

-Dsoapui.properties=C:\Work\Properties.txt

-Dsoapui.ext.libraries=<value>

Specifies the path to the external .jar files that ReadyAPI should load (for example, JDBC drivers).

Example:

-Dsoapui.ext.libraries=C:\Program Files\SmartBear\ReadyAPI-2.x.x/bin/ext

-Dsoapui.ext.listeners=<value>

Specifies the location where the old style plugin listeners are stored.

Example:

-Dsoapui.ext.listeners=C:\Program Files\SmartBear\ReadyAPI-2.x.x/bin/listeners

-Dsoapui.ext.actions=<value>

Specifies the location where the old style plugin actions are stored.

Example:

-Dsoapui.ext.actions=C:\Program Files\SmartBear\ReadyAPI-2.x.x/bin/actions

-Dsoapui.ssl.keystore.location=<value>

The path to the keystore that ReadyAPI uses to connect to the server.

Notes:

  • This option is used for client certificate authentication.

  • This option overwrites the KeyStore setting on the SSL preferences page.

  • ReadyAPI always ignores the javax.net.ssl.keyStore, javax.net.ssl.keyStorePassword, javax.net.ssl.trustStore and javax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword options.

-Dsoapui.ssl.keystore.password=<value>

The keystore password.

Notes:

  • This option is used for client certificate authentication.

  • This option overwrites the KeyStore Password setting on the SSL preferences page.

  • ReadyAPI always ignores the javax.net.ssl.keyStore, javax.net.ssl.keyStorePassword, javax.net.ssl.trustStore and javax.net.ssl.trustStorePassword options.

-Dsoapui.send.zero.content.length=<value>

Removes the Content.Length: 0 header from the request.

Example:

-Dsoapui.send.zero.content.length=false

-Dwsi.dir=<value>

Specifies the location of wsi-test-tools, if not default.

Example:

-Dwsi.dir=C:\Program Files\
SmartBear\ReadyAPI-2.x.x/wsi-test-tools

-Dtest.history.disabled=<value>

Disables the test history in SoapUI. Same as the Test History disabled option.

Example:

-Dtest.history.disabled=true

-Dloadui.charts.maxpoints=<value>

Sets the maximum amount of points used to draw LoadUI charts on the Load and Statistics pages. When LoadUI reaches the specified amount of points it removes oldest point from the memory, so the beginning of charts is not drawn. See Memory Management.

-Dsoapui.mock.connector.headerBufferSize=<value>

Sets the Jetty connector properties.

Example:

-Dsoapui.mock.connector.headerBufferSize=8192

-Djavax.security.auth.useSubjectCredsOnly=<value>

Controls the process of getting credentials from a request. See SPNEGO/Kerberos Authentication.

Example:

-Djavax.security.auth.useSubjectCredsOnly=false

-Djava.security.auth.login.config=<value>

Specifies the path to the Kerberos configuration file. See SPNEGO/Kerberos Authentication.

Example:

-Djava.security.auth.login.config=C:/kerberos/login.conf

-Djava.security.krb5.conf=<value>

Specifies the path to the configuration file for the Kerberos login module. See SPNEGO/Kerberos Authentication.

Example:

-Djava.security.krb5.conf=C:/kerberos/krb5.conf

-Dhttpclient.spnego.usecanonicalname=<value>
-Dhttpclient.kerberos.usecanonicalname=<value>

Specifies if SPNEGO/Kerberos should perform a reverse DNS lookup. See SPNEGO/Kerberos Authentication

Example:

-Dhttpclient.spnego.usecanonicalname=false

-Dsun.java2d.dpiaware=<value>

Commands Windows to scale the application window. This can be useful for high-resolution monitors. If the value is true, the UI is scaled to fit screen DPI. The default value is false.

Example:

-Dsun.java2d.dpiaware=true

-Djxbrowser.chromium.dir=<value>

Specifies the path to the folder that JxBrowser will write information to.

Example:

-Djxbrowser.chromium.dir=C:\Work\JxBrowserFiles

-Dmax.virt.resultset.size

Sets the maximum number of rows in a JDBC virtual response. Default value: 10000.

Non-editable properties

Among JVM options, there is a number of properties that are necessary for the proper operation of ReadyAPI. You should not modify them.

  • -Dsoapui.home
  • -Djava.library.path
  • -Djava.util.Arrays.useLegacyMergeSort
  • -Dsun.net.http.allowRestrictedHeaders
