Unable to Invoke Views from Menu in SQL Developer (Doc ID 1908949.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 22, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle SQL Developer - Version 4.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

In SQL Developer, selecting View -> [view selection] does not invoke the selected view.  For example, View -> DBA does not display the DBA pane.  But the issue may occur for other Views as well.

Changes

The issue most often occurs after upgrade from a prior release, and choosing to "migrate" prior product version's settings.  However, it has been reported to occur with new installations.
