You can check sqldeveloper.conf, in SQLDEVELOPERBIN folder to see if you have save password option disabled
Works fine for me out of the box, but I did migrate the settings of a previous 18.4 installation.
This option is not set at all in my conf file. Both in version 19.2 and 19.1 (where Version 19.2 migrated it's settings from)
Is adding 'AddVMOption -Dsqldev.savepasswd=true' worth a try?
Turns out it doesn' change anything. In fact I had to downgrade back to 18.3 because Both 19.x Versions took 99% of my CPU, when using select statements on (bigger) views I'm working on.
Topic can be closed. It's not relevant for me anymore.
Version of Java? Make sure it's something like Java 8 u151 or higher.
that's a separate issue, what we should also be fixing if indeed it's an issue, please start a new thread and share the details
I have the same issue. Upgraded from 18.3 with migration of settings.
AddVMOption -Dsqldev.savepasswd=false is not set.
Java version is 1.8.0_131
Java version was the problem. Updated to JDK 8u221 and works.
Should have read more carefully.
Yes, JDK is the issue.
If you want you can download the one which comes packaged with JDK.
