JDeveloper Integrated Server will not start

A quick post as I find that the JDeveloper integrated server will not start with JDeveloper in some cases, looks like when the user’s home directory has a space in the path.

You can work around this issue by adding a line to the JDeveloper configuration file at <JDEV_HOME>\jdev\bin\jdev.conf as follows:

AddVMOption  -Dide.user.dir=c:/jdev/jdevhome

You need to set the path name at the end to something without a space in it.

Note that this will “forget” about your old “mywork” directory, so you may want to copy your applications to the new location.
