History of Oracle JDeveloper and Oracle ADF Releases

In this link you can review the information about all JDeveloper releases.

The first release JDeveloper 1.0 was in 1998!
After 18 years ADF has evolved and in View layer we had had UIX-JSP,Swing,Faces and now ADF Faces with MAF. But the core of ADF BC is similar arround big concepts like AMs,VOs,EOs,ViewLinks,Associations,…

I think that this is one of the main features in this framework, that protect you from UI technology changes and this is important in a big company or big projects

Remove classes in JDeveloper 12c

Sometimes using  the last version Jdeveloper 12c.(12.1.3) I have had some problems when I debug and I test new changes in the code.

The application doesn’t get the changes despite I remove the classes.

In these cases you should check if you have a folder called classes in the web-inf folder.In this case, remove the classes folder and run it again.

If you have a custom external tools in your JDeveloper maybe the configuration of this tools are complex.

Currently in JDeveloper we don´t have a tool for import/export our external tools.
But if you have a custom external tools and you wish export to another JDeveloper it´s easy.
The IDE save the configuration´s tools in the next path

  • C:\Users\[your user]\AppData\Roaming\JDeveloper\[system11.1.1.x..xx.xx.xx]\o.jdeveloper

In the file product-preferences.xml.

Only you should copy this file in the folder o.jdeveloper of the installation where you wish import the external tools.
