Search Oracle ADF Blogs with a New JDeveloper Extension
By Shay Shmeltzer-Oracle on Feb 26, 2013
With so many developers out there working with Oracle JDeveloper and Oracle ADF there is a lot of excellent technical content published about JDeveloper and ADF in blogs and other places on the net. But how do you find the information that is relevant for you? How do you track down the entry that will solve your specific ADF question?
Well we at the JDeveloper product management team have been hard at work over the past years tracking and tagging every blog entry that we found. This resulted in a repository that had close to 4,000 how-to's about Oracle ADF - all indexed and searchable with keywords.
However the site that hosted this repository (connotea) is closing, so we took the repository and moved it to a new location. In the process we cleaned it up, removed some non-working URLs, and fixed others, and did some cleaning on tagging as well.
Note that you can sign up for the rss feed of this site to get notified when new blogs are being posted. Or if you prefer you can just track the same feed through our twitter account at http://twitter.com/JDeveloper
In parallel I created a small extension that will allow you to also search the repository and show the results for a keyword directly inside JDeveloper.
You can download this extension through help check for update. Or directly here.
If you want to improve this extension or learn how to build your own extension - you can get the workspace/project source code here.
Here is a small video showing how to use this extension.
