Connections tab not available in SQL Developer on mac os

I am running mac os x 10.6.8 and I have downloaded SQL Developer 3.2.10.09.
When I open SQL Developer, the only tab visible is the <b>Start Page</b> tab and when I click on the <b>View</b> menu, <b>Connections</b> is not an option.
I believe I have JDK already installed:
Macintosh-001b63934fce:~ Paula$ javac -version
javac 1.6.0_35
Macintosh-001b63934fce:~ Paula$ which javac
/usr/bin/javac
Macintosh-001b63934fce:~ Paula$ ls -la /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/
total 72

lrwxr-xr-x   1 root  wheel   59 Sep 13 09:30 CurrentJDK -> /System/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0.jdk/Contents
What do I need to do to be able to see the <b>Connections</b> tab so I can create new connections?
