Design Studio 1.4 SDK: Issues when launching from the Eclipse IDE


I am receiving various errors when launching Design Studio 1.4 from the Eclipse IDE for SDK development.  All of the components appear in the Component panel as expected but I can't drag and drop any of the SDK components (or standard components for that matter) onto the canvas.  When I launch Design Studio 1.4 independently of Eclipse everything works fine (event though I still see come errors in the Console).

I'm hoping the community can provide some guidance to help resolve the issue.  The details are documented below:


Design Studio Version: Release 1.4 SP0 Patch 1 (64-bit)

Eclipse Version: Java EE IDE Luna Service Release 1a (4.4.1) - 64-bit

Java Run-time Environment: Version 8 Update 25 (64-bit)

Operating System: Windows 7 64-bit

Eclipse Configuration for DS SDK:

Target Location:

Target Environment:

Target Run Configuration (Main):

Target Run Configuration (VM Arguments as per DS SDK Developer Guide):

Steps to Reproduce Error

1.  Launch Eclipse

2.  Launch DS 1.4 from Run command in Eclipse

The following screen appears immediately after launching DS from Eclipse:

At this point the DS error log is as per the attached DS_Log_After_Eclipse_Launch.txt file.

3.  Create a new blank Application from the Application -> New menu.  This time additional error messages appear as shown in the screenshot below:

It's not possible to drop any standard or SDK components onto the canvas because the internal browser doesn't appear to have been instantiated due to the above errors.

At this point the DS error log is as per the attached DS_Log_After_Eclipse_LaunchAndAppCreate.txt file.

3. Return to Eclipse IDE

The Eclipse Console displays the following errors:


The Eclipse Console Log is as per the attached EclipseConsoleLog.txt file.

4.  Launch DS 1.4 Independently

The following errors also appear when I launch DS 1.4 independently of Eclipse but it in this case everything seems to work fine.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
