Ant Tool Window not showing targets

Issue #1640 resolved
Angela Benavides created an issue

I reported this bug to the IntelliJ support team:

After following their steps, I noticed this issue comes up only when the Illuminated Cloud 2 plugin is enabled.

This is my system information:


IntelliJ IDEA 2020.1.2 (Ultimate Edition)
Build #IU-201.7846.76, built on May 31, 2020

Plugin: Illuminated Cloud 2, version 


These are the steps I follow to reproduce the bug:

  1. I created an empty project and added an Ant Build file (Build -> Generate Ant Build...)
  2. Create some demo targets in the Build file.
  3. In the Ant tool window, add the new Build file to the project.
  4. Not targets are displayed:

5. Disable the Illuminated Cloud 2 plugin (File -> Settings -> Plugins)

6. Restart IntelliJ, then the targets are displayed correctly:

If I enabled the plugin again, the Build doesn't show the targets again. So this looks like it is a bug only when the Illuminated Cloud 2 plugin is enabled.

    This sounds like a recurrence of an issue that was reported against JetBrains a bit back:

    It occurs with Illuminated Cloud and a few other plugins. It does not seem to be an issue with those plugins as it was a regression when the JetBrains IDEs were updated with no other changes to those plugins.

    I no longer see this issue. I'm currently using IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate Edition 2020.1.2 with the latest version of Illuminated Cloud 2 installed and enabled, and I can execute targets from my ant script from within the IDE.

    We should probably move this back into the linked JetBrains issue so that they can research the root cause. I'm happy to help coordinate that.

    Angela, can you please install this build with Settings/Preferences>Plugins>Install plugin from disk (under the gear drop-down menu) and see whether it helps? This is based on a suggestion from another plugin developer seeing the same issue. Because I can't reproduce the issue, I'm unable to verify whether it makes a difference. Thanks much!

    Okay. So obviously something was set in a way that changed when you restored default settings. I'd love to know what. Perhaps the next time this happens I'll have a user export settings, reset, and export settings again so I can see the differences.
