Official Release - Version 8.0.1

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at

The Download Link is still version 7.9.1

Viewed the Release Highlights from within Katalon studio start page. The start page says version 8 is available, but when I click on the upgrade link, get a messages that I am up to date with version 7.9.1. So is there really a version 8?

Hello everyone

Please try downloading our latest version - 8.0.1 from website. Due to an internal issue, v8.0.0 was rolled back to v7.9.1. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Happy Testing


Hello, launching this call:
WS.verifyElementPropertyValue(response, ‘.//multiRef/esito’, ‘OK’)

I get the following error:
Caused by: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Property ‘http://javax.xml.XMLConstants/property/accessExternalDTD’ is not recognized.
I read on the net that this is an anomaly. Confirm?

Katalon 8.0.1


I am sure v8.0.1 has a problem. Have a look at the following post for detail:

HI @kazurayam, @gabriele.lupoli,

Caused by: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Property ‘http://javax.xml.XMLConstants/property/accessExternalDTD’ is not recognized.

This is an issue of Katalon Studio in v8.0.1. We are planning to fix this.
The workaround, for now, is to put this script at the beginning of the test case or @BeforeTestCase method of a test listener:


Thanks for the answer and the suggestion. With the workaround I get this other error:
Caused by: java.lang.RuntimeException: Lo spazio di nomi per il prefisso ‘soapenv’ non è stato dichiarato.
I noticed that it is the same case reported here:

My response is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv=“” xmlns:xsd=“” xmlns:xsi=“”>
<ns1:activateLineResponse soapenv:encodingStyle=“” xmlns:ns1=“”>


Do you have any suggestions?

In KS 8.1.0 when I execute a suite with Variable binding, I see this message:

Azure: Enterprise license for this feature is requested

Are you referring to the KSE license? Wonder why I read Azure.
Thank you.
