3.1 - Public Synonyms - Hanging

When I click on Public Synonyms it says loading and hangs. I then have to Task Manager out of SQL Dev 3.1.

    Hi JB,

    There are a couple of different issues here:
    1. Due to the sheer number of public synonyms, it is true running the query and rendering the result in the navigator tree can be quite slow.
    2. Attempts to cancel this long running task from within SQL Developer can fail.

    A workaround to prevent yourself from accidentally running this task is to apply a (highly restrictive) filter on the Public Synonym node.

    As for the cancellation issue, a bug was logged specifically for remote DB connections:

    but it might happen on a local DB also, either
    A. As a true hang (probably due to using an incompatible JDBC driver version -- should be using ojdbc6.jar), or
    B. As with the cancellation failing so that you must wait for the DB to return the query result.

    Examples of (B):
    * Windows platform limitation for Out of Bound Breaks, especially for SERVER=SHARED connections
    * Perhaps you disabled JDBC Out of Band Breaks intentionally (as a workaround another issue) and forgot about it:

    Hope this helps,

    I tried adding a restrictive filter and that fixed the hanging problem for me. Thanks for the tip!

    Hi, Can you please provide an example of the filter which worked for you? I believe I've encountered this issue, too.
    I'm curious how restrictive - maybe an example will help me.

    I was only interested in synonyms created by a single owner so the filter I used was: table_owner = 'OWNER_NAME'. There are only a few synonyms created by this user, so the list came back instantly.

    I hope that helps you a little,
