JDeveloper Versions Explained

As mentioned in this blog post, developers who want to use JDeveloper to build customizations or extensions for Fusion Applications should always get the exact version of the tools that are certified for their Fusion Applications release.  They are, together with Fusion Applications-specific design-time extensions and runtime libraries, available for download on eDelivery.

These are the most recent version numbers:

Fusion Applications Release 4: JDeveloper 11.1.1.6.2
Fusion Applications Release 5: JDeveloper 11.1.1.6.3

It is important to note that all these JDeveloper versions belong to the 11gR1 “series” — 11.1.1.x.  If you look for JDeveloper on OTN, you will find versions of a newer series, 11gR2: 11.1.2.x.   The multi-segment version numbering scheme that Oracle uses may lead people to conclude that the differences between 11.1.1.x and 11.1.2.x should be minor.  That is not correct.  The 11gR2 versions are not certified with Fusion Applications. One reason is that in 11gR2 the extension/plugin architecture for JDeveloper changed to OSGi, and not all the extensions needed for Fusion Applications work are available yet in an OSGi-compatible implementation.

As the OTN download page itself currently explains, SOA and Webcenter are not available.  The Fusion Applications specific extensions such as applcore’s are also impacted by this architectural shift in JDeveloper.  As you can imagine, work is underway to move everything to the OSGi model, but for the time being Fusion Applications requires 11gR1.
