    In the past, the java development tools from Oracle looked somewhat interesting, but I've never found a group or corp using them. Actually I've never even heard of anyone that uses them. Is there a customer list for those who are using the java dev tools?

    We do. I currently work for a company called Paul Financial in California. We use JDeveloper and Oracle 10gAS. I actually know quite a few companies that use Oracle development tools. It is usually the same story. In our case the company historically used Oracle Forms and Reports. We wanted to web enable everything, so we bought a license to the Oracle Application Server. Later on we started doing Java Development and decided to just use the OC4J because we already had a license for it. We tested out a few IDE's and found that they all worked well, but chose JDeveloper because it was one of the first to have an integrated PL/SQL editor and Database editor. The database editor was quite useful for Oracle DB as it included the ability to manage constraints, triggers, Objects, and Oracle specific data types. We continue to use JDeveloper to this day. I'm not saying that JDeveloper is the best IDE, but it does the job. With its integrated Database Editor, PL/SQL Editor, and GUI Toplink tool. I'm sure there are more then a few other Oracle shops out there that are using it. I have also heard from a friend of mine that works on Oracle applications that using JDeveloper can be helpful in those environments depending on Oracle Applications extensions you are customizing. At home I use NetBeans for my personal projects, because I do more general purpose development, and NetBeans has support for JRuby and JavaFX development, plus has a much better Swing builder then JDeveloper.

    We don't have a list of all the customers who are using JDeveloper - we don't have this information since the tool is available for free download from our site, therefor we don't have a license fee that we can track :-) We do have this page that lists some more detailed stories of customers who are using JDeveloper for Java development: http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/jdev/customers/index.html (by no means is this a comprehensive list) You can find other customers that use JDeveloper for both Java and SOA development here: http://www.oracle.com/customers/index.html The very active community is evident by looking at the volume of traffic on the JDeveloper forum: http://forums.oracle.com/forums/forum.jspa?forumID=83 Shay Shmeltzer, Oracle
  5. Pretty List BUT some questions[ Go to top ]

    Seems like a good list of SOA and Agile frameworks and technologies However I would like to know how do you provide supprt for integrating your own lagacy frameworks such as Oracle ERP, Poeople Soft, Siebel etc into a middleware oriented service layer. 1. AS a company, Is Oracle is in a position to use ERP services as Enterprise service as SAP do and provide them through a service enabled platform using web service technologies via Enterprise repository, registry 2. As a company, Is Oracle in a position to provide seemless integration of legacy systems using the service layer tools and common technology based ADAPTORS? I would like to see Oracle not only providing a middle layer tools with technology enablement but also address how do they use it for their own legacy application integration and modernization. For a smart guy, as of today SOA tools can be achieved through open source but in case somebody has to buy that from a vendor, they have to prove it themself that their tool is good to clear their own mess. As a solution provider company such as SAP and Oracle. Oracle has a responsibilities to show how did they use their JAVA/J2EE/SOA based tools to clear the mess around their ERP and COTS applications, otherwise it is just another game. Also since you guys are behind BEA to buy their middleware stacks, to get some trust by JAVA J2EE community around the world, it is also nice to pro-activily publish your client list, how do they use it, where do they use it and how it is being compared with other vendor tools. Except Oracle Database, all products from Oracle as company is very suspecious in Developer's mind, and anybody sit back and look into the force behind Oracle's intention to buy BEA also can understand something is wrong with your middleware tools. Some time technology enablement will fail cuz the enabler not understand the usage of it, and I think that is what happened to Oracle as a middleware company. Thanks
  6. RE: Pretty List BUT some questions[ Go to top ]

    As far as the question on whether we expose our ERP system to be used in SOA application the answer is yes - have a look at the Oracle Integration Repository: "Beginning with Oracle E-Business Suite 11i10, Oracle introduced a comprehensive online directory of Web services, interfaces, and integration points that act as the service broker for Oracle E-Business Suite. This directory functions as a catalog of all Oracle E-Business Suite integration points, including Web services, business-tobusiness (B2B) protocols, application programming interfaces (APIs), legacy integration technologies, and business events." http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/applications/integration/irep%20datasheet.pdf more links on this subject http://irep.oracle.com/index.html http://blogs.oracle.com/schan/newsItems/departments/extendingApps/2006/07/24 As far as the BEA move, far be it from me to interpret Larry's motives, but many people have suggested that the move was less about getting the technology and more about getting the install base.
  7. Thanks for your reply, Anyway I would like to also hear about some the comparison you have with respect to major other vendor's middleware tool and SOA frameworks. Recently I heard GM (Most stupid Automakers in the world) Select Oracle Fussion as their future middleware framework. But as of today there is no much value for GM's business in changing world. But at the same time when I hear about other vendors such as Walmart use Mule PG&E use BEA DELTA use TIBCO NYC use some one else I would like to know your tools comparison and your tools usage in some firms with prosperous future ( GM, Ford etc is not more considered as progressive future company) Also I have heard, some of your SOA tools usage of DB as a back end bone and eventually melt the hardware silicon power when loaded with huge inputs. I know some of your intension to go behind coherence Cache to make everything sleek. But coherence is expenssive solution to attain the cache agility. So again how to do you compare your tools in performance with other major vendors and open sources. Thanks

    I had never heard someone knock a product because a badly performing company bought it. odd...
  9. I know some of your intension to go behind coherence Cache to make everything sleek.
    Coherence can provide the necessary infrastructure for building continuously available, highly reliable, predictably scalable and highly performant applications. I can't comment on Oracle's plans (it's company policy), but it's hard for me to imagine anyone not wanting those qualities of service in everything that they build.
    DELTA use TIBCO
    Delta also uses Coherence .. and so does TIBCO. Two great customers :-) Peace, Cameron Purdy Oracle Coherence: Data Grid for Java and .NET

    I can tell you my opinion on how Oracle's product compare to others, but then I'm not objective :-). So how about reading what analysts like Gartner, Forrester and others have to say about this? See: http://www.oracle.com/appserver/expert_opinions.html

    2. As a company, Is Oracle in a position to provide seemless integration of legacy systems using the service layer tools and common technology based ADAPTORS?
    Oracle has partnership with Adapters partners and as part of it´s SOA estrategy offer a full set of Adapters http://www.oracle.com/technology/products/integration/adapters/index.html to integrate with a lot of legacy systems.

    I would like to see Oracle not only providing a middle layer tools with technology enablement but also address how do they use it for their own legacy application integration and modernization.
    Indeed and it has an active Modernization initiative based on SOA and Middleware check out http://www.oracle.com/technologies/modernization/index.html and a blog about the topic http://blogs.oracle.com/jblog/ Juan C.
  12. Re: Curious[ Go to top ]

    We're using JDeveloper (www.prologic.net) heavily, for similar reasons to the guy below whose company was historically Oracle Forms etc. I'm however using it for EJB 3.0/web services/JPA development mainly and the database modelling/JPA entity round trip engineering for which it is reasonable, though not perfect. JDeveloper compares pretty well with Eclipse for what I'm doing so no complaints. The tech preview JDeveloper 11 however is broken in this area and I've posted under RichLiv on the Oracle JDeveloper 11g Preview forum on Oracle Metalink detailing part of this. What it boils down to is that the generated code is changed in some areas and broken in others. The show stopper for me there was the way primary key fields were handled in the new generated entity code - no checks for nulls before updating referenced objects, leading to NPEs galore. More significantly, Oracle (on Metalink, their own forum) have said that as they don't support it yet, it is tough luck if it doesn't work as it is a beta product. So be careful and back everything up before you try and migrate as you may find, as I did, that you need to rewind.
  13. Will OAS 11g bring us a normal deinstaller which will completely remove the installation? Now (as many years before) I have to run deinstaller, then remove the Oracle Home folder. After that some files are still in use and cannot be removed until I restart my machine.
  14. I wonder why the IDE do not have a native support for Glassfish. Glassfish is using their Top Link by default. On the other hand JBoss uses Hibernate. To me it looks like supporting Glassfish is a good choice.
