Thread: Spoon can not start

  1. #1

    Default Spoon can not start


    Spoon stopped be able to start on my PC.

    Click on Spoon.bat
    The start window is shown for a 1-2 sec (version 5.0.1). and then disappears. Nothing happen after that. No error messages..

    I replaced the dir "data-integration" completely from the zip archive I had downloaded, but this did not help.

    When I replace the dir "data-integration" with the older version 4.4.0 then it seems to be OK: Spoon starts. But I have to continue to use the new one version. Very frustrating situation because the same happen also on my server machine.

    Thank you very much for answers. P.

    0) I would start from opening the command line and typing somthig like
    $>java -version
    java version "1.7.0_45"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_45-b18)
    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.45-b08, mixed mode)
    1) Spoon (CE edition) is launching using windows .bat script or unix .sh script.
    For both cases you may try to start Spoon overriding output log into a file for example - executing command like:
    $Spoon.bat > d:\temp\spoonOut.txt
    any stack trace will be very helpful.

    This is a link to main method:

    Since you have splash window opened -
    this is the line to show splash display

    Spoon can fail on attempt to load some plugin related stuff here:\

    And stacktrace will be printed here:

    So this stacktrace can give an answer to your problem.

    Try to start Spoon after renaming your old Kettle profile (.kettle in your user home directory).
    So long, and thanks for all the fish.
