Shay Shmeltzer's Oracle Development Tools Tips

JDeveloper Related Blogs OPML for Your Reader

Shay Shmeltzer
Director of Product Management - Oracle

While it is nice to see more and more people blogging about JDeveloper and ADF - it is a bit hard to keep on top of all these posts and not miss some.

We are working now on a solution that will provide you with a single RSS feed for JDeveloper how-to related blog posts and will also make this repository searchable. More on this soon.

Meantime one solution you might want to adopt is adding all the JDeveloper blogs to your favorite RSS reader. But here comes the tricky part - who has the time to add all these blogs one by one?

The solution comes in the format of OPML - which allows you to load multiple feeds in one go.

And just because I'm so nice ;-), I created one for the JDeveloper blogs I know about.

Here you go - JDeveloper OPML file (right click and choose save-as then point your reader at the local copy of the XML file you saved).

Stick this into your favorite RSS reader (Google Reader, Netvibes etc) in the import section and you are golden.

By the way, if you have a blog about JDeveloper and ADF that is not on the list - I'm sorry I missed you, but let me know by leaving a comment on this post and I'll add you to the file.

[Feb-4th update - I added a few non English blogs to the OPML file]

    Hi Shay,
    I tried to subscribe to the feed you have mentioned, in my Google reader. But I got a message saying "No feed available for http...".
    Any suggestion?

    Hi Shay,
    I couldnt register the compiled feed with google reader.
    No feed available for "http://blogs.oracle.com/shay/gems/JDeveloperOPML.xml"
    I suspect this could be because of the blogs which are on oracle network and need an sso login.
    Please let me know if I was doing something wrong.

    It seems that you actually need to download the xml file to your hard drive and then point Google reader at the OPML XML file. You can't just point him to the URL of the XML file.

    Well it still did not work.
    This what I tried:
    - saved the xml to my local disk
    - add the following URLs to Google Reader:
    1. D:\Manish\GReader\JDeveloperOPML.xml
    2. file:///D:/Manish/GReader/JDeveloperOPML.xml
    Still got the same message: No Feed available...
    Am I missing something?

    You actually need to use the preferences->import/export option to import the OPML file.
    see: http://www.google.com/help/reader/faq.html#import
