Eclipse – OEPE bug (workaround): Cannot create application server connection (Weblogic, Tomcat, JBoss, …)



These days I was struggling with a Eclipse – OEPE bug. After deleting and adding several times some servers in the server tab I’ve noticed the following bug: the “add new server” wizard was informing that the password cannot be empty but in the same time the password field was read-only. This bug appears also when you move the workspace to another location/machine.


The solution(workaround) is quite simple:

  • you need to go to your {workspace-directory}/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.runtime/.settings
  • delete this file: org.eclipse.wst.server.core.prefs
  • restart Eclipse

Now you should be able to create your WLS connection in eclipse. This issue/solution is valid for any application server connection in eclipse.
