JBuilder loads with the window minimized and none of the menus work properly

By: Christopher Moeller

Abstract: Resolving problems with JBuilder when non-JBuilder JARs are stored in JBuilder subdirectories.

Question:

JBuilder was working fine, but now when I attempt to load the IDE, the window is automatically minimized, but when it is restored none of the menu options work. When I launch JBuilder from a commandline, I notice an exception is being thrown:

 

java.lang.InvocationTargetException

in

com.borland.jbuilder.path.xmllibrary.storage.read

at

java.lang.NoSuchMethodError

 

Why might this happen?

 

Answer:

This behavior might occurr if a JAR not related to JBuilder was placed in the /JBuilder/lib directory. JBuilder will attempt to load JARs in this directory during the startup procedure. If you may have stored JAR files in this directory that are related to your own projects, you should relocate them elsewhere.
