Update: 10.7.1 has been released with a fix for this problem.
The Servers view in MyEclipse may fail to open in MyEclipse 10.7.0 in certain cases. Attempting to open the view will cause an NPE to be logged.`java.lang.NullPointerException
at com.genuitec.eclipse.ast.deploy.core.Deployment.create(Unknown Source)
at com.genuitec.eclipse.ast.deploy.core.DeploymentManager.loadFromPreferences(Unknown Source) `Cause: You have an active deployment of a project which is no longer in your workspace; the project may be either closed or deleted from your workspace.
We will be releasing a fix for this shortly with a 10.7.1 maintenance release.
1) Close the Servers view.
2) Open all projects in your workspace. If aware of any deployed projects that you have deleted from your workspace, re-import them into the workspace.
3) Reopen the Servers view – it should now work fine. If you wish to close/delete some projects, please ensure that you undeploy them (so they are not listed in the Servers view) before doing so.
Please use this only if you are unable to recover using Option 1.
1) Shut down MyEclipse.
2) Delete the file com.genuitec.eclipse.ast.deploy.core.prefs which is located at <workspace dir>/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.runtime/.settings/com.genuitec.eclipse.ast.deploy.core.prefs
3) Restart MyEclipse.February 12, 2013 at 11:59 am #335323
