So, if I create a DB connection using the WA Database panel, ie clicking the '+' to open the database connection type wizard - it opens fine.
I enter all parameters and pick my database in localhost.
When I ok it, nothing appears in the WA Database panel!
Only the connection folder.
Refreshing the panel has no effect.
The connection is visible and a selectable option when I run the DA wizard.
As you can see I've made a few attempts now!
