    4.0 Beta: Bugs?


      A couple of things I have noticed using 4.0 Beta:

      • SQL From File Not Displayed on Start
        When starting SQL Developer with numerous tabs saved from a previous session, the SQL in the current tab is not displayed.  If I select a different tab, then select the offending tab, the SQL is diplayed.  I did not notice this behavior in 3.2.2.
      • Server Output Requires DBMS Output Connection to be Enabled
        In 3.2.2, I was able to set SERVEROUTPUT in the SQL window to view server output without first enabling the connection in the DBMS Output window.  4.0 Beta appears to require this.
      • Slow
        I assume this is due to being beta with quite a bit of debugging information in it.


      I am running 64 bit Java 7 under Windows 7.  Note, I did try running with 64 Java 6 at first.  I experienced the same issues in both JVM's

          How? In startup? In general usage? Can you provide any numbers to give us an idea of what you're seeing? I wouldn't assume anything...

            I am not as concerned with this as I see the same delay in 3.2.2.  Figure with the plugins, jvm, etc. that this is just the way it is.  I don't see it as any different than any other program with a number of features.


            General usage:

            • Search/Replace
              I can see a noticeable lag that did not appear when doing the same operation in 3.2.2.  Was not a huge file, maybe ~1K lines in it.  The number of replacements was 20 to 25.  Straight text, case was matched, not a regular expression.
            • Undo
              Undo'ing the previous edit--no surprise given the lag from before!


            I generally have about 10 to 15 tabs open, of those 1 to 4 are not tied to any file, all are are shared between 1 to 2 different connections.

            • 3. Re: 4.0 Beta: Bugs?

              Thanks for narrowing down the problem to search and replace. We found performance issues when working with larger files/buffers and implemented a fix for the next EA.


              Does your search/replace 'speed up' if you try it in a worksheet that's not connected to a database?

              • 4. Re: 4.0 Beta: Bugs?

                Good Call!  The speed of the operation does appear to be quicker if not connected to a database.

                  Then I think we have this nasty little bug squashed for our next update, EA2. And no, I can't tell you when that will drop

                    If there is a specific place on the OTN forums that I should be placing information about SQL Developer 4.0 Early Adopter 1, please point me in the proper direction. This just seemed like a similar topic.




                    I am using SQL Developer 4.0 Early Adopter 1 on Mac OS X Version 10.8.4.




                    PROBLEM: when I execute a query and it appears as script output (not query result, but script output that is like text dump), I have the folIowing problems:




                    * I cannot cut and paste selected pieces of content using Command+C and Command+V.  For example, if I select a number in the output with my mouse, then hit Command+C and try to paste that number into an email, it does not work, the copy/cut will not work.




                    * while in the script output window,if the output fills entire script output window and it requires scroll up and down to see all output, then if I hit Command+A to "select all", it does not work, I must select all the content in the script output window manually using my mouse. Curiously, if I select it all with my mouse and hit Command+C, it will copy the data and allow me to paste it into another window, but if I select once column value from the output and hit Command+C, then it doesn't copy it and I am unable to paste it elsewhere. Also, when the output fills beyond the script output window, it does not scroll automatically, I must manually scroll down to see remaining output, this true for output of any subsequent queries that follow, they will execute, but to see the results, I must manually scroll down to see remaining output from additional queries.

                      These are known issues and they're fixed.
