Currently, Katalon Studio for Linux has a Lite version (Ubuntu tested) which supports only console mode execution. Katalon Studio UI as an IDE is not supported yet. This guide will cover basic setups and installation steps for Linux version.
Sign in with the registered account on Katalon website and select Linux version to download.
Since only console mode execution is supported, users DON'T need to activate Katalon Studio.
Be sure to install OpenJDK 8 on your Ubuntu (NOT Oracle JDK). You can find installation steps from here: http://openjdk.java.net/install/. Make sure that after installation, your OpenJDK information is displayed when you execute 'java -version' command:
To execute tests, follow the following steps:
- Prepare project: If you have an existing project from Windows or MacOS or from your source control, be SURE to delete .project file first after it is delivered on Linux machine.
- Generate console mode command. This command line builder is NOT available in Linux version due to lack of IDE UI. Users can generate CMD directly using either Katalon Studio on Windows or Mac OS.
- After a console mode command is generated or built, ensure to adjust the first parameter to be ./katalon . The correct command should look like as below:
- Now use that console mode command in CLI interface to run the command, e.g:
Description Causes (one of the following) Solutions Invalid Project Description
.project file contains invalid information.
Katalon command was executed lines in the SAME folder of project folder
- Delete .project file to let Katalon Studio generate back the valid information
- Execute commands outside of executed project folder
