Description Alexander Simon 2016-09-14 12:47:01 UTC
  Introduce a way for easy cleaning cache directory from UI.

  * An noticeable amount of issues which are not product bugs
    (e.g. broken cache  state after some external modifications)
     can be solved with cleaning an IDE's cache directory.
  * A developer usually asks a user to try to reproduce his/her problem
    with clean cache directory when investigating a bug.
    It helps to understand how the cache state is affecting the problem.

Why it's better than manual erasing:
  The cache can be cleaned up manually via command line / file explorer.
  The cache path is different for Windows/Unix/Solaris, Dev/Release build.
  Despite the fact that cleaning up cache directory is not daily process
  it has no convenient way to be done from IDE.

This is a very important fix required by Oracle Developer Studio. So it should be done ASAP. Upgrading to P2.
