I just finished testing a Java/XML program on Eclipse and then on Oracle's 10g and for a new Java programmer they both seem about the same to me!

Does anyone think that Oracle will continue investing in 10g with all of the competition that's currently out there?

From what i've read, 10g has some pretty extensive J2EE assist functionality and will generate the XML configuration as well!

I also use JDeveloper 9; just upgraded to 10g. I really like it a lot. But then I keep hearing about this Eclipse thing, so I decided to try it. I really like this IDE as well. One thing that I like better about Eclipse is it seems a lot lighter and uses about half the memory of JDeveloper.

As far as your question goes, I suspect Oracle will continue to develop this product. Other free IDEs have been around for a while now, and they seem to still be developing strong on this product.

Thanks Barry!

I got interested in Eclipse mainly because we use SAS alot and SAS has stated that they'l be providing some PLUGINS for Eclipse, so that's something to really get excited about!

As far as 10g goes, it's free for right now, but who knows when that might change!

And for PLUGINS, i am also hoping that someone will come up with a PLUGIN that will all for complete searches of the JAVA APIs, including comments and return values!

Anyway, to see some much convergance on JAVA is really exciting, but it's getting more and more difficult to keep up the changes!

For vendor-specific IDEs, if you use the vendor's application server, it maybe an advantage to use its corresponding IDE, just like what IBM, BEA does.

Thus, if you are using Oracle9iAS or Oracle10gAS, I do feel that it is better to use JDeveloper10g.

Bob,
Are you talking about code completion?

Barry, i was mainly interested in being able to find classes to use based on their signatures!

So if i find that i need to use an XML class that returns a byte[], i can then search all of the APIs and find all of the classes that use a byte[] as input and then go thru that list and try to logically figure out which class to use!

Or maybe scan the comments to find references to classes that way, does this sound like a logical approach to finding out which class to use in some cases.....or are you talking about searching finished code for information?

That's an interesting idea. So the scope for the search would be all the libraries in the project? Is there a tool out there now that has this feature?
