Does SOAtest & Virtualize support Java 9 or higher?

amurphy147 Posts: 18


I was looking at the documentation for the tools, and I saw that only Java 8 is supported.

However, when I was looking over the documentation for deploying SOAtest and/or Virtualize servers using the WAR file, it says that Java 8 or higher is supported.

I just wanted to confirm if this is an inconsistency in the documentation.

    I know that SOAtest Desktop is only certified for Java 8. That doesn't mean it won't work with Java > 8 (I think I've tried that before) only that you are doing so at your own risk (not supported by Parasoft). I know that the Eclipse that is packaged with SOAtest Desktop does not support Eclipse > 8, for example. So, if you wanted to try it, you would also have to install SOAtest as a plugin into a newer version Eclipse.

    To answer your question about the inconsistency in the documentation - yes it is inconsistent. We will update the docs. Thanks for pointing it out!
