Failed to Instrument Java process

Post by wcrockett » Fri Feb 19, 2016 6:52 pm

Hello all,

We use Ranorex against a Java based web application (Oracle Forms and Reports 11g hosted on Fusion Middleware.)

My tests work, but every run gets the following warning:
JAVA AWT/Swing: Failed to instrument Java process. Please make sure you have enough privileges to access the process.

I have run the Java instrumentation Wizard and I see patch notes addressing this issue, but I still receive the warning. Does anyone know how to fix this for good?

Thank you,

Hello Wes,

First, may I ask which version of Ranorex you currently use?

Please have a look at the following forum thread: Ranorex causing java.lang.OutOfMemoryError.
May I ask to check the log files of the Java application? Are you facing the same issues like described in this thread? We are already working on the issue and hope we can fix it with one of our next releases.

I look forward to hearing from you.
