View Full Version : [FIXED] Architech Frezes while editing Code and Destroys Metada (file vanishes)

While editing a medium sized project (file size is 234 kb) ,
On code View, while editing an action handler.
Correcting a comment about using triple = to check against null .


A Windows error is received claiming Sencha Architect stopped functioning.

Aplication Shutdowns without any other error, and leaves the view that was being edited at zero byte size.

The file is completely empy.

There are no backups on the metadata directory, and hence lots of information is lost if no backup or svn is used.

This behavior seems to repeat when there are low memory situations or architect has been open for several hours.

If you could please create a Unviersal exception that tries to save or on every save create a metadata backup (like delphi does) to get the last version saved.

I would be more than happy to supply the code in question.

Rodrigo -

Thanks for the bug report. This is a windows only issue. We've fixed many low memory situations in the next minor release. The release is going through our QA process now.

You make a great point about recovery and backup. There is lots of room for improvement to make Architect more ACID compliant. We recommend that you have your project in source control to avoid data loss in the event of a crash.
