It's Raining JDeveloper Extensions

Shay Shmeltzer
Director of Product Management - Oracle

It's a history breaking March here in the bay area with more rainy days in March this year then in the last 100 years. Another small flood I've noticed this week is of new extensions to JDeveloper.

So just this week we got 4 new extensions:

Gerard Davison with AspectJ extension for JDeveloper that lets you use AOP.

And an Ant Task extension that lets you run JDeveloper tasks from an Ant task.

Brian Duff with a Template Maker extension for creating and using templates for your Java files.

Stellan Aspenstroem with the Rules Tools - for working with Oracle Business Rules language inside JDeveloper.

And two weeks ago we got the Subversion extension to JDeveloper.

It's great to see the functionality of JDeveloper growing in this way.

So if you are missing something in JDeveloper, how about building a little extension that will do it?

You can use either the JDeveloper API or the JSR-198 API to build your extension.

For the JDeveloper API we have a set of code samples and online documentation that you can get as an extension to JDeveloper (of course) through the help->check for updates.

Let me know if you have an extension ready, and I can work with you to get it published.

    Wow - three Oracle bloggers I read and you are the only one who allows comments! Chris Shay does not, Stellan does not.
    Anyway, what's the status of Oracle's integration of business rules into .NET? I know that the BPEL and JDeveloper teams have integrated open source rules and made it easy to plug in third-party rules like Blaze Advisor but what about .NET? Blaze Advisor and some others can deploy into .NET but what hooks exist for .NET / rules integration in the Oracle stack?

    We have a Business Rules product that can integrate with any application be it Java or .NET application.
    You can read more about it here:
