reasons to use eclipse = reasons to use eclipse - 1

One new "hidden" feature of JDeveloper 10.1.3.1 is the "run with compile errors" feature. It allows you to run your project even if you have compile errors in it. This makes it easier to test code that is not yet complete or that depends on other people source which is incomplete. In general it makes test driven development easier.
To set this go to your project properties under the Run/Debug Configuration -> Tool Settings and check the box.

If you like this feature you can thank the guys at one of the big 5 consulting companies, who decided to switch their teams from Eclipse to JDeveloper and requested that we implement this feature.
(They weren't the only one asking for this - I remember people approaching me about this before in an event we held).

So there you go - one more reason to get out of the Eclipse shadow and into the bright world of JDeveloper.

So ... Just 1569 more features to copy from Eclipse Just 1569 more features to go If you implement them all, you've just built Eclipse So why not give JDeveloper the heave ho?

Interesting. Any plan to support GroupLayout, as it seems to have become defacto standard for Swing apps (MyEclipse and NetBeans) and will be added to Java 6?

Calisto, sure there are some feature in Eclipse that we still don't provide - but have you actually looked at the list of features that JDeveloper provide and Eclipse doesn't? You might want to look at the new JDeveloper and see. A little summary is here: http://blogs.oracle.com/shay/2006/02/01/

Casper, Yes this is planned see our SOD for JDeveloper on the JDeveloper page on OTN. And by the way we already support visual Swing development and we also support the JGoodies layout which is not bad at all :-)

I am 120 percent agree with Shay. I've tired of using Eclipse and NetBeans, and then comes JDeveloper make my day...
