Yet Another NetBeans Platform Application: Oracle JDeveloper 12c

There's a lot to recognize in the recently released Oracle JDeveloper 12c. Definitely time to add it to the NetBeans Platform Showcase, since JDev 12c is now visibly a NetBeans Platform application, along with hundreds of other applications, such as Microchip MPLAB X, Lua Glider, DbWrench, VisualVM, and jMonkeyEngine SDK, to name just a few of at least hundreds (that we know of, though I suspect thousands) of others.

In the release notes, notice paragraphs such as this: "The JDeveloper and NetBeans teams are working together to bring the best of each of its Java UI visual editing tools to all users. This release introduces the "Matisse" editor from NetBeans in JDeveloper."

There's been a bit of activity on Twitter about these developments, which are described in historical detail at Jaroslav Tulach's blog, specifically here:


Wow!!!, I remember talking about integration of ADF Essential and Netbeans IDE, Now if effective, very great job Oracle

Interesting. So the same bits are now a NBM under NetBeans and an OSGi bundle on JDeveloper?

I'm not familiar with JDeveloper's versioning, I assumed 12c is something else, maybe a sub-projects but it seems to be the main thing.

Nice...I had a bit of trouble getting it running on OS X.
