  • Firebug (JavaScript debugger for Firefox)
  • Oracle SQL Developer
  • Ant for building and deploying
  • JUnit for unit testing
  • Notepad++ for general text editing tasks
  • Clover for code coverage during unit testing
  • Our app is deployed on Linux servers running Weblogic 9.2, Oracle 10g
