      Please help me how to fix this problem.

          It appears the SVN plug-in is giving you troubles, normally you should be able to disable it from
          Tools -> Preferences -> Extensions -> Versioning Support
          Assuming you do not need it.


          Since your system is no longer starting you might have to manually remove the related jar file from the installation, this file is usually located in:
          [SQLDev_install_dir]/jdev/extensions
          and it's name is:
          oracle.jdeveloper.subversion.jar
