Attention Extension Developers: Your input wanted!

Your Input Wanted!

I've posted a lot of different topics throughout 2011, and would really like to provide info that is most important to you, the extension developer, as we head for 2012.

What are the most important areas that you want to learn more about?

Post your requests for examples and topics in the comments section. Let me know what you are struggling with, or something that you worked out, but it took way to long to figure out.  I'll take the list and do my best to provide samples over the coming months.

Please provide the version of JDeveloper that you want the topic to cover.

Remember:

11gR1 = 11.1.1.x (e.g. 11.1.1.5.0)

11gR2 = 11.1.2.x (e.g. 11.1.2.1.0)

Thanks in advance for your comments and suggestions.  Let's get the JDev Extension community going in 2012!

Hi!

I think essentially for developing is automatic testing to see that all of the features does work in a new pluging version over lots of JDeveloper versions. How do you do that with JDeveloper in your development?

Another thing would be how to save the properties of a plugin in a hierarchie first per project next per JDeveloper instance. How to save this in such way, that it's would be migrated to a new JDeveloper version?

Kind regards

Can you post samples on how to create custom editors. I am planning on creating an editor which would reflect the contents on an XML file

ex:

<xml>
<Name>Oracle</Name>
<LanguagesKnown>
<Language>Java</Language>
<Language>C++</Language>
</LanguagesKnown>
</xml>

I want an editor that would allow me modify and add entries to the XML though the editor UI instead of modifying the XML directly.

Hi John,
I started developing extension for Git and JDeveloper a couple of weeks ago, and you don't know how frustrated I'm to start building my extension, I discovered that the samples and documentation of the JDeveloper itself isn't enough to start build a public extension, in the other hand I started to unpack the official Oracle extensions to see how things can be done in a proper way, and discovered that there are so many techniques that Documentation doesn't talk about..at all.

Also the lack of extensions in 11R2 made me made my extension in Version 11.1.1.5 as I found sources for some information that could help me, and the default generation of extensions in 11R2 seems to generate bugs more often, so I switched back to 11R1, here is a link to what I'm trying to do http://mdlwr.amr-gawish.com/jdeveloper-git-extension-v1001.

I'm sorry I'm talking too much, but the point is more examples is needed, along with a developer guide with everything that might pop up in head is also needed, also a tutorial to build an extension is really essential for instance, how to create a technology, an application template, a project template, and how to add a custom wizard screen to add your personal technology information to this app/project template stuff like that.

Thanks & Best Regards

Hi John,
here some features i like to do by my own extension:

a.) Add my libs as JDeveloper Library like JUnit

b.) Replace or change JDeveloper Project Defaults (maybe replace project1.jpr) or Preferences

c.) Audit PL/SQL code ?

Best Regards

Hi John,

A frequent requirement when deploying ADF/WebCenter application to external servers is to deploy the archive in exploded format. So it would be good to have a menu item for deploying to an archive in exploded format.

Thanks,
Sai
