This topic explains how to install SOAtest from a Eclipse p2 update site. This process applies to the SOAtest standalone installation, which is built on Eclipse, as well as the SOAtest Eclipse plugin.
SOAtest - 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.
When installing from the update site, you need to install the Eclipse Graphical Editing Framework (GEF). You can download and install Eclipse GEF from http://www.eclipse.org/gef/.
When installing Parasoft SOAtest from the p2 update site on Windows, it is necessary to run the .bat script named
soatest_install.bat.This script is installed into the
eclipse directory of the Eclipse installation into which you installed the update site. It script registers some dlls that are needed for web functional testing using Internet Explorer. It executes tasks that are normally completed by the Parasoft installers, but are not supported by the p2 update site.
This script must be run as administrator.
Mac OS Installation Using the Eclipse Installer
If you have installed Eclipse on Mac using the Eclipse installer, you will need to start Eclipse from the command line before using the update site.
