Interested in developing using the Spring Framework or the Google Web Toolkit (GWT)? If you are then here is something that will bright up your day...
This week so the release of two free extensions for JDeveloper that offer support for both Spring and GWT.
For Spring, Duncan finished his extension that provides you built-in integration of the Spring framework inside the JDeveloper IDE.
Once you install it you'll get a built in Spring library and a wizard for creating the beans.xml file and configuring the JDeveloper project.
And more importantly, for any of the Spring XML files you get to enjoy JDeveloper's XML editing framework. With features such as code insight, auto complete, declarative property editing, the structure pane editor and even a component palette.
Get more information here.
For GWT, Trung T from gDevelop.com developed a visual editor for GWT that integrates into the JDeveloper IDE. As well as project and library configuration.
More information is here.
If you are using any of these two frameworks, and you haven't looked at JDeveloper lately - this is the time to do it.
I'm sure you'll like many of the other features you are getting for free such as Visual JSF/JSP/Swing, EJB 3.0, DB development, UML, Web services and much more...
As JDJ said lately - JDeveloper is worth a second look...
