OWB OMBEXPORT Fails Without Error Message (Doc ID 1319512.1)

Last updated on MAY 05, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Warehouse Builder - Version 10.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The OMBPlus command OMBEXPORT TO MDL_FILE fails without reporting any messages.
Also, the error log file is not created.

Example:

OMB+> OMBEXPORT TO MDL_FILE '<path>/owb.mdl' FROM PROJECT 'OWB_PROJECT' OUTPUT LOG TO '<path>/owb_mdl.log'

OMB+>

instead of:

OMB+> OMBEXPORT TO MDL_FILE '<path>/owb.mdl' FROM PROJECT 'OWB_PROJECT' OUTPUT LOG TO '<path>/owb_mdl.log'
MetaData exported successfully to mdl file <path>/owb.mdl.


When the debug mode is set (see <Note 1319503.1>  for setting the OMBPlus debug mode)  a java.lang.OutOfMemoryError is reported.
