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

More info about this version:
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.
If you want save to migrate this tools in other computers or in another JDeveloper instance you can find the configuracion about your tools in
Find a and here you can find your tools entry.
A month ago that JDeveloper 18.104.22.168 is out.
And came with a many bugs fixed and many ADF new features.
I highlight some:
1. Many ADF DVT Components
2. New ADF deck component for carousel transactions
3. Client side CSS rules as @fontface
4. groovy support in debug mode and groovy in the UIhints
5. Support ADF DI in Windows 8 and new components and properties in this product
12c already has a year of life and every time is a more stable version and is a good choice for our projects. And comes with the last version of SOA, ADF and Mobile Application Framework
The new version for JDeveloper has a problem in the installer of 64bits in Windows7 and 8.
For install the IDE you need execute the installer as administrator
You can configure the default editor that will open for the different file types in your Jdeveloper. Tools>Preferences>File Types> tab Default Editors
I recommend the source editor for fragments and jspx, you get a better performance
The new version of JDeveloper is now out. The oficial list of features is here
Some highlighted features:
- Java EE 6 Support
- HTML5, MathML and CSS3 Support:
- REST/WADL Support
- JSF 2.0 Support
- New ADF Components
- Maven and Git support
- Matisse Swing Support
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.
