It's been a long time since I saw a mention of JDeveloper in any of the industry publications - and I can tell you this is a little furstrating at times.
But this month JDJ published a review of JDeveloper 10.1.3.1.
Maybe this will cause more people to give JDeveloper a test run and discover all the great things it offers.
Read it here.
"The new 10.1.3.1 release of Oracle JDeveloper has a lot to offer with functionality that extends far beyond what one would normally expect from a Java IDE. One of its key strengths is its out-of-the-box richness, comprehensive feature set, and tight integration. No need for searching, acquiring, and installing a lot of plug-ins.... If you haven't looked at Oracle JDeveloper in a while, you'll definitely want to take a second look now."
