This post is the first in a weekly series of short articles that provide you with hopefully useful tips for your development work with Fusion Applications.
In JDeveloper, to improve the productivity you may choose to open jspx and jsff pages in source mode by default instead of design mode. This can be done by following:
- Go to Tools –> Preferences –>File types
- Go to tab Default editors and change the value of the file types to source
Jspx and jsff files by default open in design mode and depending on the complexity of the page it may take some time to render them in the visual editor. However, most of the time developer needs to open jsff or jspx to just go to do non design tasks like navigating to the corresponding page definition file, looking into the page structure or doing simple changes in the page layout which can done in the source mode or in the structure window without the need to view the page in visual editor. Another reason is most of the time the page in the visual editor does not look like the actual page at all.
