JDeveloper and NetBeans - The Official Answers

Now that the Sun deal is done, we can finally explain our strategy for the Java development tools and what we are planning to do with the various tools.

If you missed Thomas Kurian's section in today's event, check out the following for the basics on our Java development tools strategy:

And you get more information by watching this web cast about the Java development tools.

So how close were your predictions?

Shay, it sounds very good to me what Ted says. The first thing that positively surprised me is that Oracle has really thoroughly analyzed the new entries & tools for their middleware stack. With Ted being one of the guys behind JSR-198 I see a bright future for JDeveloper & NetBeans. To answer your question: It's far from my predictions, but very close to my hopes.

Thank you for the info. Most of it is clear enough, although the question on (part of) the SOA development tools - for instance Eclipse OSB and JDeveloper's port going forward - remains unanswered. See: http://forums.oracle.com/forums/message.jspa?messageID=3896864 Can you comment on this? Thank you, Jan Vissers

I'm interested in whether there will be any effort to help use NetBeans add-ins (particularly the iReports development tool for JasperReports add-in) as JDeveloper extensions, either by unifying the extension architecture, or by some sort of adapter.

@John: My hope is that both IDEs implement JSR-198, the Spec for IDE interoperability started by Oracle (I assume JDeveloper already does, and NetBeans infrastructure is already very similar). With that it should get much easier to share plugins between both. So part of my hope is, that Oracle commits to implementing the Spec for NetBeans ( and maybe for Eclipse... ).

You certainly did the unexpected as far as my predictions. I think the idea of widening Oracle's developer universe is smart. NetBeans has a huge community and there is an opportunity for cross- pollination between the two IDEs.

Could you add an answer to FAQ to following question: "What is the future of Netbeans plugins for scripting languages (Ruby, PHP)?"
