SQLDeveloper 3.0 and the Missing Imported Connections in Ubuntu

SQLDeveloper 3.0 production has finally been released.

Like a kid on Christmas morning, I ripped off the wrapping paper and plunged straight into the installation on my Ubuntu laptop.
All was going according to plan…until I fired it up and found that it hadn’t imported my connections from SQLDeveloper 3.0 EA4 ( 3.0.3.97).
It seems that the production version has got a bit sniffy about it’s Early Adopter sibling although, oddly, it does still import any extensions you have installed.
Anyway, to save you the trouble of setting up all your connections again…

Right-click the Connections node in the tree view and select Import Connections
When the Import Connection Descriptors dialog pops up, click Browse

Navigate to $HOME/.sqldeveloper/system3.0.03.97/o.jdeveloper.db.connection.11.1.1.4.37.59.36 and select connections.xml to open.
You will then see a complete list of your connections from EA4. Hit OK and they all magically appear under the Connections node.
