I am using the latest SQL Developer (Version 3.0.04 Build MAIN-04.34). Within it I am trying to use the Data Modeler. In the Browser, under Designs, Untitled_1, Relational_1 I can add tables and arrange them in a diagram.
It is not possible to save it.
Going File > Data Modeler > Save I am presented with a 'Save Design' window with a 'File name' of 'file:/' and a 'File type' of 'dmd' and 'dmdz'. I have tried numerous alternatives to save my diagram. I must remove the literal 'file:/'. I have tried 'test', 'test.dmd', 'test.dmdz'. I have tried the default location of 'C:', I have tried the directory in which I wish to store the diagram. To no avail.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what I need to do to save this diagram?
I pointed the Default Designs Directory to a directory on my PC (C:\David's stuff) but when I press 'OK' the window does not close. I tried different directory names - C:\With space's, C:\Without_spaces, and C:\Withsmal. It doesn't matter which I use the window will not close.
When I use the same name in each of the five slots, press 'OK', then 'Cancel', and reopen the Preferences window all but Default System Types Directory contain the value I supplied. Is this other directory something special?
Once I do have data in any of the slots, the window will not close when 'OK' is pressed.
I closed and reopened SQL Developer and the four previously populated Directory slots are empty again.
I have tried this with MyEclipse running and not running without any difference in behaviour. The only other software I am running is MS Word, Firefox, and Citrix.
Any ideas will be gratefully received. I will be trying the software on my personal laptop this weekend and see what differences I find then.
Okay. I downloaded Java 18.104.22.168 and installed it. I then renamed the sqldeveloper 'jdk' directory to something else. I pointed SQL Developer to the new Java directory and started SQL Developer.
I can now save a Data Modeler diagram but can not set the default directories.
I can not get 'off' the Preferences > Data Modeler page unless I press 'Cancel'.
I am getting SEVERE error on the 'Logging Page' Seq:48 Elapsed:0 Source:o.ide.IdeCore Message:Exception firing mainWindowOpened to oracle.dbtools.crest.fcp.DataModelerAddin$1@1614932 (the last number changes each time I statrt SQL Developer.
I have solved most of this problem by leaving Subversion 'active'. I have tested this and found that if Subversion is 'off', I get the error and can not work with the Data Modeler. If Subversion is 'on', I do not get the error and can work with the Data Modeler. This means that I can open a previously created 'dmd' file and I can also set the default locations for the Data Modeler.
