    Thumbs down Spoon crashes ...

    I created a transformation in Spoon, saved it, closed spoon and reopened the xform. On reopening, the spoon tool crashes with no GUI error. However, when i enabled logging at debug level and checked the server log I got the following stack trace: ( I checked this problem in 2.5.0 version and it persists in 2.5.0 release as well)

    Thumbs up

    Attach the transformation and we can have a look at how you killed spoon. It seems you managed to make a step without a name at first sight.

    Regards,

    Hi Sven,

    thanks for your prompt reply. Take a look at the attachment and tell me if I am doing something wrong.

    Default

    Open up the transformation and look at line 630. There you'll find your problem, you created one step without name... Currently this is allowed but it crashes spoon afterwards.

    Put a name in there. Open the transformation, save it again and close/reopen it.

    I also opened a JIRA tracker for you : http://jira.pentaho.org/browse/PDI-143

    Regards,
    Sven
