Yet Another NetBeans Platform Application: Oracle SQL Developer 4.0

I took a look at Oracle SQL Developer 4.0 today. Startup is really fast and a lot is familiar:

And the window system too, much more flexible than what SQL Developer used to have!

Here's the installation directory, i.e., including parts of NetBeans:


Very cool, just like JDeveloper 12c.

Comments:

When Oracle acquired Sun Microsystems I feared that MySQL, the NetBeans Platform and NetBeans IDE will be discontinued, Oracle has their own products and buying competition generally is done just for that: kill it.

In no case did I see this coming: JDeveloper and SQL Developer being ported to the NetBeans Platform.
Now this is what I call a bright future for the Platform.
Great job NetBeans teams, the only way is up!
