as well as a bug causing tables in the object tree to appear unsorted alphabetically:

Version 2.3.1 released

This is just a big-fix release. Changes since 2.3 final in this release are as follows:

1554175: (Aliases lost on close)
1532997: (NullPointerException when trying to save alias)
1522229: (Error occured saving Alias Definitions java.lang.NullPointer)
Many people complained about this one. At first we determined this was low
priority since it didn't seem to be reproducable on all jvms. We inadvertantly
changed the SQLDriverPropertyCollectionBeanInfo such that it no longer
accurately described the bean SQLDriverPropertyCollection. in 1.4.2_05 this
triggered an NPE bug in the jvm code (Introspector.addPropertyDescriptor) which
caused the SQLAlias persistence to fail, leaving the user with no aliases.... read more

Alias NPE issue resolved

Older JVMs (and even 1.5.0_09 according to one user) would experience a NullPointerException on exit, causing Alias changes not to be saved. There was a bug in one of the SQuirreL JavaBean classes that supports persisting Aliases to an XML format when SQuirreL is closed. This bug was triggering a NullPointException in some JVMs, which is a bug in itself, over which we have no control. However, the errant code was spotted and fixed and the latest snapshot was tested with 1.4.2_05 (which always had the problem) and it appears to be fixed. The snapshot installer and source code with the fixed code is here:... read more

Don't use JDK/JRE 1.4.2_03, Aliases may not show

here is be a problem when JDK/JRE 1.4.2_03 or below is used. It seems like SQuirreL can't show and save your Aliases anymore. When you use a JRE/JDK higher than 1.4.2_03 (preferably a 1.5.x version) the problem should be gone. If not try to remove the SQLAliases23.xml in your .squirrel-sql directory. The directory should be located in you user home directory.
