java exception when opening top level QSYS design

I am seeing this Java exception when I open my top level QSYS design.  

 

Any suggestions for workarounds are appreciated because now I have  

lost access to my design.

FWIW, I was able to recover my top level QSYS design today. I noticed that the Java crash had something to do with validation of nios2 tightly coupled data and instruction masters when QSYS loads a design file into memory, and I also recalled that the last change I made in QSYS was related to moving the SGDMA descriptor ram between the top level system and the network subsystem (because I was unhappy with how the base address was being maintained in two places - both at the top level and at the subsystem level). I decided to try adding the on-chip SGDMA descriptor RAM back into the network subsystem to work around the QSYS crash but I couldn't remember any-longer the name of the on-chip ram master that was used in the export. Finally, after looking in the ginormous raw .qsys file I determined that the exact name of the export of the ram master, specified in the link in the top level subsystem, was "descr_ram_slave". After properly amending the export name in the network subsytem (using QSYS - I did not modifiy any QSYS files outside of QSYS) then I could open my top level design again in QSYS.

Thank you for the update! It's good to know. 

You should submit this bug report to Altera so that they can fix it in a later release.

If a Program or code contains several errors or exception in this program that should be removed by the developers. To overcome these issues can get solution from Dart vs Javascript which will help them to sort out these issues easily.
