View Full Version : issue with the designer (demo package)

08-03-2007, 05:17 AM

I just started trying Pentaho, which seems to big a great tool.

However, I am having a problem while generating my first .xaction file with Eclipse (the one provided in the demo package).

It consists in a small resquest to a MySQL database.

After creating a query in Process actions and adding it to the Process Outputs, when I click on test I get the following error message :

"An SWT error has occured", without much more info. It mentions a ".log" file to get more details, but I can't find it.

Can someone help me please ?

Thanks in advance.

There are two general places the log file can appear:

1) A subdirectory of wher you installed eclipse.
2) Within the workspace that you're working with. To figure out the workspace location select File->Switch Workspace. It will show you the location of your active workspace.

Hopefully the log file will help pinpoint the issue.

Thanks for your answer. I found out the log file in the .metadata folder of my workspace.

But as I am not able to debug this, I attached it here.

Thanks again in advance.
