Default JDE graphic problem: Will someone correct this bug someday!?

Please Login to Remove!


I'm using JDE from 4.2 to 4.7 and there's a constant bug that has not been fixed in any version. This bug generates empty code windows in memory after closing it. Here's how to reproduce the annoying problem:

- Open a workspace,
- Open some Java files and then close them,
- Open any Java file and double-click the header of the window to change its state from maximized to normal.

Here's the bug. You'll see all windows from the closed Java files you previously open appearing again, but blank! And the most annoying part is that it's impossible to close them. Event if you reopen the Java files, new code windows will be created. It's almost impossible to use the 'Window\Tile...' options because the blank windows are tiled too!

I'm sure I'm not the only one having this problem. Is this a known bug? Will it be fixed in the next version? I know using Eclipse should be a good idea because the JDE has many problems, but I got too many problems trying to setup it the last time, and I don't have time for that.

See the image below for an example.

hahah.... i knew they were ditching their JDE. I am so glad I didnt get comfortable with it. Eclipse is so much better IMO.
