JDeveloper 12.1.3 : Improper SQL Parsing in VO Query with Non-Oracle Database, Adding *!*

(Doc ID 1984927.1)

Last updated on MAY 24, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle JDeveloper - Version 12.1.3.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Using JDeveloper 12.1.3 with SQL Server, when the user edits a View Object to modify a query, the "building columns in SQL query" dialog pops up and hangs indefinitely.

The Messages - Log window shows an error message similar to:

Syntax Error at line XX, column XX; Expected: xxx_id,identifier, near*!* in the following: XXXCounts.[*!*NumberOfXXXs]

Note the addition of the asterisks and exclamation point.  The original SQL is fine, but the asterisks and exclamation point are added, causing validation to fail.
