This problem can occur on any platform.
When attempting to Delete a value in a nullable field the following error occurs:
UPDATE "<USER>"."TABLE1" SET NAME = WHERE ROWID = '<ROWID#>' AND ORA_ROWSCN = '<ROWSCAN#>'
One error saving changes to table "<USER>"."TABLE1":
Row 5: Invalid column index: getValidColumnIndex
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. In the <USER> schema open the Data in the NAME field
2. Select name and Delete it.
3. Now commit.
4. The error appears.
If you fill the field in with something else it will commit.
This works with SQL Developer 1.5.1 and 1.5.3
