Oracle Updates JDeveloper

Oracle is updating its JDeveloper Java IDE for Fusion middleware customers this week. JDeveloper 11g Release 2 is a free IDE for Oracle customers, though it is based on proprietary code.

JDeveloper is still focused on JDK 6, which is inline with the current deployment of Fusion middleware servers.

"When Fusion middleware as a whole revs up to the newer version of Java, at that point in time, we'll be providing the tooling for that," Duncan Mills, senior director of product management explained to "Needless to say, yes we're working on Java 7 stuff but it's not in this release." Java 7 is currently in the process of being finalized by the Java Community Process.

JDeveloper is one of many Java IDE's that Oracle supports. It also sponsors and supports the NetBeans IDE it acquired from Sun. NetBeans, in contrast to JDeveloper, is open source and also focused on supporting the bleeding edge of Java 7 standards. JDeveloper, meanwhile, is focused on enabling Oracle Fusion middleware.
