Information in this document applies to any platform.
When using JDeveloper 18.104.22.168 on a Ubuntu 12.04 system, with JDK 1.6.0_XX, JDeveloper occasionally crashes, with error buffer overflow detected.
The crash typically occurs when trying to edit ADF task flows (e.g., in adfc-config.xml) in diagrammatic mode.
The following stack back-trace is visible in the console:
The issue cannot be reproduced at will. Crashes occur unpredictably, typically after 30-60 minutes of use. Increasing the maximum and minimum heap sizes (-Xmx and -Xms) given to the IDE helps somewhat, but does not completely eliminate the problem. It is possible that the problem affects other Linux variants, but the problem is reported most often by Ubuntu users.
Despite its popularity, Ubuntu is not a certified operating system for JDeveloper.
