Oracle announced that JDeveloper 10g is now free.

Neato, now, questions. How good is it? And does it tie you into Oracle proprietary API's on the data/web side? Or can I use it the same way I use IDEA?

This Flash demo is very impressive!

And it looks like it doesn't tie you into Oracle database products. Some fairly funky Struts integration too...will have to give it a go

Where I work we have a license for JDeveloper, but use IntelliJ (except for cases where I need the extra functionality of Eclipse).

What I like about the latest JDeveloper is it has a fairly decent JSF page designer. I often design JSF pages there and then rip them out an put them in IntelliJ projects

It also appears to have lots of support for J2EE projects in general, but it's sufficiently different than the other IDEs I use that I haven't wanted to spend the time learning it in detail. And I think it may constrain project structure somewhat, making it harder to adopt externally-developed projects (which is one reason I favor Eclipse).


Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.

Man, I wish we didn't something as heavy just for creating a JSF page. What I'd like is a drag and drop JSF page creator that only creates the JSP for me. I will take care of the backing bean. But I guess this is kind of a hijack, so back to our regularly scheduled program...

Playing around with it, I would say that it is impressive. Full support for servlets, jsp, and jsf. Struts integration. UML modeling with porting to and from Java classes. EJBs. Web services. Wow!

I don't see what the fuss is all about... JDeveloper has always been free!

Before it became really free, you were free to try it out as long as you wanted but you had to buy it after you were finished with trying which many never did

No, it was $995 per developer. I hope you aren't saying that you used the 30 day evaluation copy beyond the 30 days! That would be stealing from your fellow Java programmers, wouldn't it?

Currently, JDeveloper 10 is freely downloadable, but this is has legal limits in the nature of the projects that can be developed. (See the license for details.) Commercial licenses are available at a published $995 per seat. However, after the 28th of June, however, the price point will disappear and the download will be an unlimited version.

I'm extremely pleased with jDeveloper. Especially it's Oracle tools, which are terrific even if you don't touch the Java side. We're an Oracle shop at work, and we've chosen Oracle Application Server and jDeveloper as our standard for the future.
