    Default Kettle Spoon mysteriously closes.

    I noticed that sometimes, the spoon closes without warning or error. Sometimes, I placed 4 to 10 steps and then it closes. It is really irritating because you havent save your work yet. Sometimes, spoon is reliable. I really do not understand the reason behind this.

    Does anybody know the reason and the solution for this?

    I am using Windows XP Home / Windows 2000.

    Sorry to hear that anonymous,

    Please do file a bug report for it.

    >I am using Windows XP Home / Windows 2000.

    Most people on this planet do, but please understand that this is not very helpful.

    If you could be so kind to include a bit more details on the version of Spoon and the version of the Java Virtual Machine used.
    (run java -version on a CMD prompt)

    And really, a stack trace would be nice as well.

    To capture the stack trace, edit the Spoon.bat file and switch the REMs in the last 2 lines.
    (e.g. use the java line instead of the kettlew line, this gives you a console)
    Place a "pause" command after the last lines so that when you do get a stack trace it remains on the screen.

    With this information, we should be able to help you out almost instantly.

    Thanks in advance for the feedback,

    Matt

    Java Version = 1.5.0_06
    Java Runtime Environment , Standard Edition ( build 1.5.0_06-b05)

    Spoon Version = 2.2.2

    I will post later the stack trace.

    Thank you for reminding me. Sometimes I forget details...

    Not at all. Other open-source projects typically put up fairly large bariers by asking a whole list of details up front. I deliberately choose NOT to do this because to allow even minor anoyances to be captured.
    So you see, I don't remind people to send all this information on purpose. ;-)

    Again many thanks. If you can reproduce the bug and the stack trace, that would be really great! People all work in different ways and it's sometimes a certain combination of handlings that triggers a certain bug. This is very hard to detect so an exception trace REALLY would be welcome ;-)

    Hi Matt, this is the error that appeared in the console when it mysteriously shuts down.

    Have you figured out the problem? This is still happening. Although this is not so critical, the problem is quite irritating. Perhaps we can add a auto save feature.

    I noticed that it happens when I drag the icons. Maybe it gets too confused or my system is slow?

    Default RE: Kettle Spoon mysteriously closes.

    Someone reported crashes of Spoon on OSX as well. Personally I never have any problems anymore these days, but that&#39;s because I can fix any problem I have immediately ;-)

    So, because of the OSX problem, I implemented another Drag And Drop mechanism for Spoon, transporting data over XML (UTF-8 String). The code is available in the latest drop of kettle.jar in Documentation / Development Packages.

    Don&#39;t hesitate to post a stack trace yourself.

    Thanks!

    Matt
