JDeveloper Freezes at Startup (Doc ID 2089809.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 16, 2015

Applies to:

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

Symptoms

JDevloper 12.1.3 freezes right after startup.
The program executes, but trying to create an application is as far as it can be done before it freezes. Then, it has to be killed through Task Manager.
Many things were attempted as adjusting some VM parameters in various files as described in some forums but it did not solve the problem.
