The soapUI Runner is the most powerful of the Runners that are bundled with loadUI, but also the most complex one. That is why this tutorial assumes that you are familiar both with the basics of loadUI and the basics of soapUI.

0.2. Setting up a soapUI Runner
Start by creating a soapUI Runner, by dragging it from the component's toolbar to the grid. Proceed by clicking the soapUI Project dropdown and then click Browse to bring up a file browser.
Find the soapUI Project file that you would like to load test and click Open.
The soapUI Runner will now load the first TestCase of the first TestSuite in that soapUI Project. As a result of this, the previously empty table will be populated with that TestCase's TestSteps — a view that should look familiar to any soapUI user.
If you are not happy with the first TestCase of the first TestSuite, just click the soapUI Project dropdown again:
The soapUI Runner is now configured! You may want to test that it works by clicking the Run Once button, and then lean back in your chair and just enjoy the feeling of having the complete soapUI engine encapsulated in a small box.
