I just started experiencing a bug where the SQLDeveloper 4.1.3 (latest) app icon freezes in the mac OS dock. This prevents me from relaunching the app without a hard reboot of the computer.

sqldeveloper in dock

Activity Monitor shows no app running.

When I run directly from shell, it launches
P1105S123LT3:~ dan$ /Applications/SQLDeveloper.app/Contents/MacOS/sqldeveloper.sh
When I kill it from another terminal window :

P1105S123LT3:~ dan$ kill -9 12148
The shell from which I launched it returns this:

/Applications/SQLDeveloper.app/Contents/Resources/sqldeveloper/sqldeveloper/bin/../../ide/bin/launcher.sh: line 1286: 12148 Killed: 9               ${JAVA} "${APP_VM_OPTS[@]}" ${APP_ENV_VARS} -classpath ${APP_CLASSPATH} ${APP_MAIN_CLASS} "${APP_APP_OPTS[@]}"
P1105S123LT3:~ dan$
P1105S123LT3:~ dan$
P1105S123LT3:~ dan$

I have tried killall Dock which does not clear it. I have tired deleting /Users/dan/Library/Preferences/com.apple.dock.plist

Still can't clear the app from the dock....

Any ideas??

So it appears that this was related to mac file structure corruption. I rebooted in safe mode and that rebuilt some caches which resolved the issue when

I again rebooted in normal mode. I ran the disk utility repair to verify file structure as well.

I talked with apple support who advised that safe mode bypasses the following caches, preferences, folders... so if need be - could wipe these folders to force a rebuilding of caches.

/Users/myuser/library/cache
/Users/myuser/library/LaunchAgents
/Users/myuser/library/Saved Application State

/library/Caches
/library/LaunchAgents
/library/LaunchDaemons
/library/StartupItems
