Using ODI on Windows 2003 and Sun JVM 1.4.2_08 (coming with ODI).

Symptom 1

Some operations requiring pop-up windows to be open on Datastores (such as Constraints > "Insert Key" and Columns > "Insert Column") freeze ODI Designer if Java is in no-console mode (javaw.exe).

The same operation succeeds with ODI Designer started in CONSOLE mode

Symptom 2

During reverse engineering of a Table the Set Metadata step hangs on the Operator.

On the Model treeview, some Tables are reversed, but the run in ODI Operator does not successfully run to completion.


ODI GUIs run on Windows 2003 SP2 operating system

ODI (setup from OTN)

This issue comes from a known JVM bug on Microsoft Windows 2003:
