[Quoted] I had a strange problem with JDeveloper 9051 a couple of days ago. I was making changes to some PHP files in a project. I had done several Save, then Run, Save then Run, etc... Then I got an error trying to write the PHP [Quoted] files. I tried using Save All, but it reported the same thing. I closed down Apache (the webserver for the PHP files). I tried shutting down anything else that I thoguht might have an effect. Still no go. So, I shutdown the JDeveloper application (of course, got the messages to save the [Quoted] current project, but again the error). As it was shutting down, it listed several other files that it had an error writing - the only one I remember was System.sys.

When I went to restart JDeveloper, it displayed the splash screen, then went [Quoted] away. Running "jdev.exe" from DOS command line showed a Null Pointer Exception while trying to read the addin config file. I went to the Jdev\bin folder and saw that several of the initialization files (maybe a dozen) all had a size of 0 bytes, and last update time of just a few minutes [Quoted] earlier. After deleting all of the 0 length files, JDeveloper started up again, with what seemed to be the initial new installation layout. I was able to open my existing projects, but the 2 PHP that I was editing during "the incident", were also 0 bytes. :-(

Has anyone else seen this behavior? I see there is an updated version 9052 [Quoted] that I will try. I didn't see anything like this in the "bugs fixed" for 9052. And, what's up with the Technical Forums at Oracle? I don't seem to [Quoted] have access to them anymore. I could swear I've read through the forums there before, but when I click on the link to it, it says there was an error [Quoted] like I don't have permission anymore. I even requested that my login and password be emailed to make sure I was typing the right thing. Received on Mon Sep 20 2004 - 19:31:03 CEST
