Issue:
When editing a static VARA in the 11.2.x Automic Java UI, values can get deleted if the row above that value is completely empty. 

Initial VARA setup:
User-added image

Delete the values in row1:
User-added image

Save the object. Val2 gets deleted:
User-added image
 
Cause:
This is a bug in the 11.2.x Java UI. 
Resolution:
This bug was not reported in time before the 11.2.x maintenance window, and will not be fixed in future versions of the 11.2.x Java UI.

Workaround:

When the VARA has the empty row, click on any cell in the row still containing values (e.g. click on key2)
User-added image

The row containing values will shift upwards, and no values are deleted when the object is saved:
User-added image
