Schema compare NullPointerException

Every time I try to do a simple schema compare of two databases, I get an error

java.lang.NullPointerException
at com.quest.toad.compare.jobs.LoadJob.run(LoadJob.java:79)
at org.eclipse.core.internal.jobs.Worker.run(Worker.java:55)

I’ve tried turning off most options, I can’t seem to get the Compare feature to work at all. I currently have a 30 day demo license. I really wanted to check out this feature before buying. v 1.1.0.20178032024

Hi Dan,

Unfortunately, we cannot reproduce the error. Could you please provide us with more information?

  1. Are you using Toad Edge on Windows or macOS?
  2. Are you using any of the supported versions of MySQL? Or perhaps another database, such as MariaDB?
  3. Do you also encounter similar problems in the rest of the application?
    Regards,

Lukas

I have the same NULLPointer error issue:

java.lang.NullPointerException
at com.quest.toad.compare.jobs.LoadJob.run(LoadJob.java:79)
at org.eclipse.core.internal.jobs.Worker.run(Worker.java:55)

  1. Windows 10

  2. MySQL version 5.1.68 compare against MySQL version 5.7.18

  3. Not yet, but the compare and repository functions are the main features I’m testing it for.

Hi, you are trying to compare unsupported version of MySQL - 5.1, we support 5.5, 5.6, 5.7.

thanks

Sorry, I thought Julie said it supported back to 5.0 in the introduction webinar.

Only

MySQL
5.5, 5.6, 5.7

are supported.
