Symptoms

Testing a connection to 11g WebCenter Content Server (WCC) instance from JDeveloper 11.1.1.3.0 gives mixed results. Most of the time, it fails to connect but sometimes it succeeds quickly.
JDeveloper usually crashes at start up if a Site Studio connection exists. If "Continue" is clicked rather than "Save and close" then other exceptions are seen during log in to a Site Studio Connection. Also, it seems to throw an exception when it should display the connection manager window to authenticate. When it does load correctly, the window shows up. When it crashes, the connection manager window never comes up.

The following error is seen in the console:
