JDeveloper 12c ready for public download

Good news!

Oracle has released JDeveloper 12c to the public.

Lots and lots of changes, new features and stuff to check out.

Futher good news:
This version is done in collaboration with the Netbeans team so expect some Netbeans coolness to rub of on JDev.

Go to JDeveloper home for your new toy.

ADF table – delete current row

This one had me up the wall for quite a bit of while…

I’ve been searching the web for all permutations of “ADF Delete button removes the wrong row” with no luck. But then I finally found the answer.

When a view object is dragged onto a page as a table and you then drag the Delete-operation in. You do not use the operations toolbar – for whatever reason.

JDeveloper project setup

On large project this setup will help separate things. Making it easier to develop parallel. Further it lightens the load on JDeveloper since you don’t need to have all workspaces open at the same time.

SVN ignore and JDeveloper 11g

I’ll confess to being a command prompt geek. OK, so I said it. Let’s move on.

When committing JDeveloper files from command line to Subversion, one has to be a bit careful.

JDeveloper is not using the “normal” svn:ignore properties (wouldn’t that be nice) it’s using it’s own list of ignore patterns.

Well … never mind: we can add them ourselves.

Ant builds in JDeveloper 11g

Here is the problem in a nutshell: Java EE architecture best practices will tell you that you need to modulize your code. That means that a given developer is working on a project specific that a given problem (use case or whatever). The rest of the project is not needed – at least not the source code.

In JDeveloper that means having a large application split into smaller applications (or workspaces). Each workspace produces a jar file which a EAR-file and deployed. This approach is best described in Sten Vesterlis book “Oracle ADF Enterprise Application Development – Made Simple”.
