#961 Hierarchy view not working


Eclipse Version: 3.4.1
Pydev with extensions version

I have been trying like a wild animal to get the Hierarchy view show anything (for an existing proper Python 2.6 source file), but it does not. The only thing I get is the horizontal divisor line.

I have checked that all the other pydev open source and pydev extensions features work.

This is for a first installation of Pydev.

    A problem with a dependency on Sun's internal implementation IMO. Now that Pydev extensions are opensourced it is very easy to see the problem: heirarchy view depends on edu.umd.cs.piccolo that has a dependency on sun.dc.* packages. What JDK are you using? Is it openJDK or some other non-Sun implementation?

    It seems that Eclipse quietly filters all the errors that has to happen during view initialization and just remove it completely.

    I see the same problem and it is a trouble if you want to build/patch the project.

    I am using Sun JDK 1.6.0_15. I guess an update is in order to see if it makes the problem go away

    Sun JDK 1.6.0_15 is likely to be OK with respect to that (at least my 1.6.0_14 has all these classes). Probably there are more problems than just that.
