    Wrong files treated as tnsnames.ora?

    user9286800

      Dear developers,

       

      Seems, that if a directory, specified in TNS_ADMIN variable or in "Tnsnames directory" field  on Preferences -> Database -> Advanced  screen, contains multiple files, whose names  starts with "tnsnames" , i.e. matching  tnsnames*.*  wildcard, SQL Developer is trying to merge content of all such files  while constructing TNS entries  used for database connections.  This leads to unpredictable behavior, because sometimes  duplicate  entries are present, and entries not from tnsnames.ora itself  are used.  Is this  a known feature or a bug?
