Downloading and Installing SoapUI

This section provides a tutorial example on downloading and installing SoapUI 5.0.0 on Windows system.

Here is what I did to download and install SoapUI 5.0.0:

1. Go to and click "Download SoapUI" from the "Downloads" menu. The SourceForge download page shows up.

2. Click to open the "SoapUI" > "5.0.0" folder and click on "" link.

3. Save the file to \herong\

4. Unzip to folder \herong. You will see a new folder created \herong\SoapUI-5.0.0.

5. Run SoapUI 5.0.0 in a command window:

herong> set "JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0\"

herong> \herong\SoapUI-5.0.0\bin\SoapUI.bat
Configuring log4j from [c:\herong\SoapUI-5.0.0\bin\SoapUI-log4j.xml]

6. After SoapUI screen showing up, click "Help" > "About SoapUI" to check the version. It should say: "SoapUI by SMARTBEAR - SoapUI 5.0.0".

That's it. Installation is done.
