gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface font-name 'Ubuntu 8'


The Parasoft/Eclipse application and system libraries must be for the same architecture. If you are using a 64-bit Linux but you are running the 32-bit (x86) version of Parasoft, you need the 32-bit version of the above libraries. 

SOAtest and Virtualize Co-Installation

When Parasoft SOAtest and Parasoft Virtualize are installed on the same machine, SOAtest and Virtualize must have an identical version number. This ensures compatibility between both products.

If you are updating an existing installation (including updating from a service pack), be sure to update both products at the same time.


Installation


  1. If you haven’t already done so, copy the installation file to the directory where you would like to install the application.
  2. Change directories to the destination directory.
  3. Set "execute" permissions on the installer.
    • chmod +x parasoft_soavirt_<version>_linux.sh
    • chmod +x parasoft_soavirt_<version>_macosx.sh
  4. Execute the installer, then follow the onscreen instructions to complete the installation.
    • ./parasoft_soavirt_<version>_linux.sh
    • ./parasoft_soavirt__<version>_macosx.sh

A directory under parasoft/soatest_virtualize/<version> (Linux) or soatest_virtualize/<version>/Parasoft SOAtest & Virtualize/Virtualize.app/Contents/ParasoftSOAtestVirtualize (Mac) will be created. We refer to this location as <soavirt> throughout this user guide. The SOAtest and Virtualize executables, command line interfaces, examples, etc. are available within this directory.


Accessing Application Contents on MacOS

After installation is completed, an application icon will be added in Finder. This is the icon that you double-click to launchSOAtest and Virtualize. If you want to view the various files and folders available within the installation, right-click the icon, and choose Show Package Contents

Updates

See Service Pack Updates.

You must run command line distributions separately.

To start Virtualize command line:

  1. Change directories to the soatest_virtualize/<version>/Parasoft SOAtest & Virtualize.app/Contents/ParasoftSOAtestVirtualize directory
  2. Enter the following command at the prompt:
    ./virtualizecli

To start SOAtest command line:

  1. Change directories to the soatest_virtualize/<version>/Parasoft SOAtest & Virtualize.app/Contents/ParasoftSOAtestVirtualize directory
  2. Enter the following command at the prompt:
    ./soatestcli

See Load Test Command Line Interface - cli for information on running Load Test from the command line.

Frozen Workspace Launcher?

On Eclipse 4.5 and Mac OS X 10.11, there is a known issue with the workspace launcher freezing (becoming unresponsive) when Virtualize starts up. The workaround is to launch Virtualize from the command line with the –nosplash argument.
