I downloaded SQL Dev 4.0 EA 5 days back, 64 bit version, 64 bit JDK version as recommended. I have Win 7 64 bit, Core i5, 4GB RAM, 50GB free space as of now.
I extracted it and it launched successfully.
I tried making few connections, both residing on my local and few remote ones, worked well.
But since last 2 days, I am noticing that its either taking too much time to open any connection (local or remote) OR is not opening it at all, so I was forced to switch back to earlier version.
I tried re-extracting SQL Dev 4.0 and running it fresh too, but same issue persists.
Any help regarding why this is happening and resolution will be highly appreciated.
I downloaded latest release of EA now and still same issue.
I noticed that its taking 420 MB, as per windows 7 task manager.
But SQL developer 3 takes 170 MB only.
Connections are not happening now, the connection progress bar in lower right corner of screen is still in progress after 15 mins...
I have Win 7 64 bit, Core i5, 4GB RAM, 48GB free space as of now
What can be the issue. ??
