Oracle Service Bus IDE

I really do think the Oracle Service Bus IDE using Workshop is awful and it drives me round the bend!

Yes, it is a billion times more enjoyable than just developing in a web browser which was the original method, but the whole IDE just feels a little unstable at times.

Today, I have nullpointer exceptions whilst publishing a project which published quite happily last week.

Many times I end up having to remove the .metadata folder from the workspace and starting again.

And the odd synchronisation issues between the file system and the workspace annoy me too.

I’m guessing this is normal eclipse IDE stuff, but if you’re not using eclipse actively for development, it’s a bit of a mystery at times.

The sooner it moves into a proprietary IDE the better!

 

Here’s an example of what annoys me.

1) New OSB Configuration, removed every trace of the previous one from the IDE.

2) New OSB Project, removed every trace of the previous one from the IDE.

3) Publish

The eclipse PDE runtime log message says “Unhandled Event Loop Exception” and you get the stack trace below and the publish, just doesn’t publish.

Now, I’m faced with trying to figure out what’s wrong with the eclipse IDE and will probably end up with wiping out my .metadata folder again as it must be hanging on to something even though I deleted the previous projects.

It just creates unnecessary pain and such a useless flippin’ error message. I really didn’t need this on a Monday morning!!
