This topic describes system requirements for ReadyAPI. For information about ReadyAPI VirtServer requirements or ReadyAPI TestEngine requirements, see the topics in the appropriate sections.

Supported Operating Systems

  • Windows 7 SP1 with convenience rollup update (KB3125574) or a later Windows operating system (32- or 64-bit).

  • Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 with convenience rollup update (KB3125574) or a later Windows Server operating system.

  • OS X 10.7.3 (Lion) or a later macOS operating system.

  • OS X Server 10.7 (Lion) or a later macOS Server operating system.

  • 64-bit Oracle Linux 6 or later.

  • 64-bit Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 or later.

  • 64-bit Suse Linux Enterprise Server 10 SP2 or later.

  • Ubuntu Linux 10.04 or later.

Supported Java Versions

ReadyAPI installation package installs the appropriate Java version automatically.

If you use a binary package, download Java 8 (JRE or later Java 8 release) from the Oracle website and install it manually.

Java 9 and 10 are not currently supported.

OpenJDK is not supported due to missing JavaFX components. If you get the "Error notifying listener after adding project" error, install Oracle JDK.

Minimal System Requirements

  • Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 (the 3rd generation or later).

  • 4 GB of RAM or more. At least 500 MB of free RAM is required to start ReadyAPI.

  • 500 MB of free disk space for installation (ReadyAPI and HermesJMS).

  • 1280 × 1024 display (widescreen monitors are recommended).

LoadUI Requirements

LoadUI runs a large number of tests in parallel. To make sure your load tests work as expected you need a more powerful computer than for other test types:

  • Intel Core i5 or i7 (the 3rd generation or later) with at least 4 threads.

  • 8 GB of RAM or more.

  • An SSD with at least 1 GB of free disk space.

The requirements above are for small- and medium-scale load tests. For information about large-scale tests, see System Requirements for Large-Scale Load Tests.

Additionally, since the logs of long-running tests may exceed 1 GB, we recommend having at least 8 GB of RAM on the machine where you try to open them.

Groovy Debugging Requirements

To run groovy debugging, ReadyAPI uses the tools.jar and attach.dll files from the Java JDK. These files are included only in the installation package and in the win-32 archive. This is done to avoid possible conflicts with the JRE installed on your computer.

To enable debugging for binary packages:

  • Place the tools.jar file in the <ReadyAPI installation folder>\lib folder. You can get this file from the <JDK installation folder>\lib folder.

  • Place the attach.dll file in the <ReadyAPI installation folder>\bin folder. You can get this file from the <JDK installation folder>\jre\bin folder.
