SQL Developer closes abruptly when opening or testing a connection.
Here's what I do.
Open SQL Developer.
Create a connection:
Connection Name: [some string]
Save password: checked
Connection type: TNS
Connect Identifier: somedatabasename
Then I click on "Test" and the application immediately quits. No error messages. The app does the same thing if I save the connection and try to expand its node on the list of connections.
Mind you, if I use sqlplus like so:
It connects just fine.
I captured the output from the command console after SQL Developer crashed:

Thanks for your suggestion. After several hours of experimenting, I've managed to fix my problem by copying the ojdbc6.jar from my ODAC installation and replacing the one in [sqldeveloper root]\jdbc\lib
To whomever has a similar issue: See my original post for what software I was using and their version numbers.
