Constant SoaTest Crashes

Lately, I have been experiencing more than usual crashes from parasoft. Now it appears to happen when I execute a test suite, and after 6 or 7 steps of the 50 or so complete

Anyone else see this issue or know how it can be remedied?

    As far as I know this is not a common problem, so I wonder if it is related to something specific that you are doing in your test. I would recommend reaching out to the Parasoft support team so they can help you troubleshoot your particular situation.

    Its difficult to access the issue without a log, but you can try increasing the Java heap for SOAtest to handle executing larger suites.

    cd "Parasoft SOAtest &"
    ./soavirt -J-Xms2g -J-Xmx4g

    This looks like a bug in Eclipse and/or Java on Mac. I would recommend updating to the latest SOAtest version (currently 2021.1) that has updated versions of both Eclipse and Java, and see if that fixes the problem.

    Yes, you are running into this issue:

    You need to use a newer version of Eclipse, like what's now included in the current release of SOAtest Desktop.
