We are very happy to announce the release of Oracle JDeveloper and Oracle ADF 12c
This is a major new version for our tool and framework and contains a lot of new and enhanced features.
And while some of the features that were developed for 12c were backported into recent 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199 releases - you'll still find a lot of new things in the 12c release.
Here are some highlights:
- Support for JDK7 and Java EE 6 along with WebLogic 12c (and support for GlassFish too).

- New Dependency viewer shows you how various files are related visually.
- New HTML 5 and CSS code editors.
