when i insert one or more stored procedure(s) on my project and then I use the "generate SQL create script" feature, workbench inserts a blank query (//) after every inserted procedure. This blank query generates a very noisy "No query specified" error when running the script.

How to repeat:
- Create a new project on mysql workbench
- Click "Add Routine"
- Insert the following example code on the routine:
  CREATE DEFINER = 'mydefiner'@'localhost'
  PROCEDURE `get_user_list` ()
  COMMENT 'Returns list of users'
    SELECT `idUsers`, `username`, `nome`, `cognome` FROM `Users`;
- Now chose File -> Export -> Forward Engineer SQL Create Script

The generated SQL will be something similar to:


CREATE DEFINER = 'vf_lowpriv'@'localhost'
PROCEDURE `vf`.`sp_admin_get_user_list` ()
COMMENT 'Returns list of users'
  SELECT `idUsers`, `username`, `nome`, `cognome`, `reg_complete` FROM `vf`.`Users`;
//  <---- this is the empty query that generates the error


Suggested fix:
Remove the empty query

Also in 5.1

Also on 5.1.18 on Linux.

The generated sql code now includes this two lines before every procedure too:

USE vf//

'vf' is the name of the DB. First line is not necessary, second one generates one more error.

Empty query (//) after the procedure is still present.

Here is a workaround bash script to post-process the generated sql file. It also removes the "DROP SCHEMA" statement

if [ ! -f "$1" ]; then
	echo "usage: $0 <filename>";

cp -a "$1" "$1.bak";

awk '{
	if (match($0,"^((USE )?(vf)?\/\/|DROP SCHEMA IF EXISTS.*;)$")) {
		print ""
	} else {
		print $0
}' "$1.bak" > "$1";

echo "Done.";

Patch to remove duplicate database name from generated source.

Fixed in 5.2

An entry has been added to the 5.2.10 changelog:

When a model containing stored routines was forward engineered to a script, the script contained an erroneous additional delimiter after each stored routine. This resulted in a “No query specified” error when an attempt was made to run the script on a server.
