1. Installing on Mac

Once you've downloaded the installer the installation is pretty strait forward. Start it by just double-clicking on it. After preparing the installation which takes only a few seconds you'll see the starting screen:

mac-setup-start

 

Just click Next to continue. You'll be asked to accept our license agreement

 

mac-setup-soapui-lic-agreement

 

After accepting and clicking Next you'll be able to select the destination folder which by default is set to /Applications but can be changed.

mac-dest-install-folder


Next step gives you opportunity to optionally include, as additional components, soapUI source files and Hermes installation.

 

mac-install-components

 

In case of installing soapUI Pro JDBC drivers jars can be included as additional option (and of course no source is available).

 

mac-setup-wizard-select-comp-pro

After that a window appears where you'll be asked to select if desktop icon should be created and if jxbrowser should be disabled. Starting from version soapUI 3.6-beta2 JxBrowser is working on mac, but there is still a issue left with  browser being always displayed on top if opened.

mac-select-additional

Finally, by clicking Next, the installation starts

mac-setup-installing

If you have chosen to install Hermes the installation will be triggered next, with it's own info and license agreement

mac-start-hermes-installation

mac-hermes-info

mac-hermes-lic-agreement

and choosing the destination

mac-hermes-destination

mac-hermes-pacs

mac-hermes-listed

mac-hermes-install

mac-hermes-done


After couple of minutes most the installation should be finished and you should see the next screen:

mac-setup-wizard-finished

 

Now you are ready to use it. Good luck!

2. Installation problems


If your installed SoapUI instance on a Mac is not responsive, try the following steps to resolve the issue:

  1. In soapui-settings.xml file add or update the following line:
    <con:setting id="UISettings@disable-browser">true</con:setting>
  2. If that doesn't work, start SoapUI Pro with the following parameter added to the command line:
    -Dsoapui.jxbrowser.disable=true
  3. Alternatively, you can navigate to SoapUI*.app and do "Show Package Info" ( from popup menu ).
    Then you should see Contents directory. Open Info.plist file for editing where you can add:
    <key>soapui.jxbrowser.disable</key>
    <string>true</string>
  4. We have also seen some issues with SoapUI installs in Mac when GateKeeper is active. So to rule out that possible conflict, deactivate GateKeeper and try starting SoapUI

Also if you want to change the look and feel of SoapUI or SoapUI Pro to look more like a Mac application, change the following settings:

  1. Go to File > Preferences > UI Settings tab
  2. Check "Use native look & feel"
  3. Restart SoapUI Pro
