You might want to try downloading the 126.96.36.199 32-bit version that includes JDK1.6.0_11, then unzip it into an empty directory. That is the most basic configuration, and using it avoids many of the common "getting started" problems.
If you really want to specify which JDK to use, or whether to use 64-bit or 32-bit, keep these rules in mind (perhaps you are already aware of them, but just in case):
1. On a 64-bit OS, you may use either the 32-bit or 64-bit SQL Developer releases.
2. If you choose 32-bit, then your JDK must be 32-bit; 64-bit requires a 64-bit JDK.
3. A 32-bit JDK will install into C:\Program Files (x86)\Java; 64-bit into C:\Program Files\Java
4. Use the SetJavaHome line in your sqldeveloper.conf file to point to the desired JDK.
5. When updating sqldeveloper.conf always specify a JDK, not a JRE.
Hope this helps,
I think there is something else going on here because this line

Thanks guys, I think I will try downloading the 32 bit first and if i still have problems i'll try to debug.
Also does it matter where I install it to?since I have a small ssd drive with windows on it and I tend to stick everything else on a storage drive.
Ok so I dl the 32-bit version and the black console opens empty which I assume is better than the errors i was getting...BUT the sql developer window seems frozen - I cant click on anything or use it in anyway. Any ideas why this would be?
Could be you can't write to your home directory, or possibly the install directory.
If SQL Developer is hung, it might be worth posting a thread dump for opne of the development team to look at.
Goto the console window and click on the top left corner and select Properties...
In Layout, set the Screen buffer height to 3000 and click on OK.
Still with the focus on the console window, hit Ctrl-Break. A thread dump should appear.
Copy and past the thread dump into a posting here.
Ok so I tried the debug option and it gave me a few lines inside the developer window which I couldnt scroll through as it is still frozen, and in the black console window it just says Registered TimesTen
I also tried the CTRL_BREAK but it doesn't do a thing...nothing whatsoever :-s
Ctrl-Break in the command window?
And if you did do the Ctrl-Break from the context of the command line window, it begins to make me wonder if you can successful run any large memory footprint Java application on your system. Have you tried something like OpenOffice? Perhaps your system has very little RAM? More details about your system might shed some light.
Yes I was in the console window when attempting CTRL-BREAK but nothing would happen.
My system runs openoffice fine, a tad slow compared to other programs but I assume that is down to the program not the computer.
My system specs are:
(Built by myself in April/June this year)
Intel Core I5 2500k & stock cooler (not oc'd)
compatible mobo with 8g of compatible ram
1 60GB ssd with windows 7 proffessional 64-bit installed
1 Storage drive where I tend to keep everything (including program files)
Assuming you dont need any other specs like which case I opted for haha! but on a serious note I would think the system can handle the program with ease, or is the fact its homebuilt an issue at all? I have not had a single problem with it so far in case you were wondering.
Ta in advance, Dan
Since you built it yourself and it otherwise works fine with Java apps, I suppose the next step is to suspect an issue with the video driver, so either...
1. See if a newer version of the driver is available.
2. See if the advice on the sun.java2 settings in the following link may be applicable in your case.
Re: Lockup on table refresh
If both of those ideas are off-the-mark, I hope Jim has something more to add -- I'm running out of ideas.
I'm pretty much out of ideas.
You could try using jstack to produce a thread dump.
Find the process id of sqldeveloper.exe
In another command window type
You can also use jps.exe to list running java processes.
jstack -l process_id
Both are in the bin directory of jdk
Gary, I have updated my graphics driver but no luck there.
Jim, tried the Jstack bit in my jdk folder i have a jre folder with a bin folder, is that the one you meant? the only other subfolder in /jdk was lib.
Anyway trying it in /jdk/jre/bin resulted in: 'jstack' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file... presumably because it isnt there?
Im starting to think I should just use this program on campus!
If you decide to give up on a direct installation, but still have the time, energy, and disk space, you can always try running a VM that includes SQL Developer under Virtual Box.
Oracle VM Virtual Box: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/server-storage/virtualbox/downloads/index.html
DBDev App VM Image: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/community/developer-vm/index.html
That VM is Linux and has a more recent SQL Developer release installed than you might want. Sorry to hear this has not gone smoothly for you. The regular 32-bit SQL Developer download with JDK really does work for most user in just 5 minutes.
