JSR-198 finalized - plugin writers take note

Director of Product Management - Oracle

Finally the long awaited JSR-198: Standard Extension API for Integrated

Development Environments got approved.
This is great news to all the small

companies out there that are building utilities for Java developers. The thing

that this JSR can save them is the need to write a special extension for each

IDE out there. Now they can write the extension once and have it work with any

IDE that implements this JSR.

The question now is which IDEs will implement this API. While Eclipse might

not have a motivation to implement this, and as such try and keep their

"monopoly" control over extension developers. Maybe someone will step up and

just develop this for them.
Netbeans and IntelliJ would probably benefit from

supporting this JSR. And as far as we are concerened here in the JDeveloper

group ? well we already support it.

You can develop extensions to JDeveloper using the JSR-198 API and the doc

for this is
