I had an issue while trying to disconnect database using the Admin tool, launched by right-clicking MySQL Server Node and selecting "Run Admin Tool..." in NetBeans Database Explorer. So, I filed a bug report, just click that link, to see more details and an attached image too, justifying my point.
After exchanging several mails and updating the bug report at Issuezilla. I told David, that I would be looking for a workaround, as he had set the TBD to 6.5 release. I can’t wait that long! So, I had two options, either hack the code and fix it by myself, and use it. Else, I should look for a workaround.
I am glad that I could find a workaround for this issue. What I did, when I Stop Service using MySQL Admin Tool, run by clicking an option in the context-menu of the Server Node in Database Explorer. I should delete the Node from the Explorer, and then, Start Service using MySQL Admin Tool. Now, switch back to the IDE and click Connect in the context-menu of the Node. See, its that simple!
However, if you use it on a regular basis, it could really frustrate you. Anyways, if you can possibly hack into the code and fix it, do update the bug report, OR post a comment over here.
Thanks for following this story! Hope you like the update from Issuezilla, as well as from my previous blog.
