Oracle JDeveloper Supports Grids and SOAs
Oracle JDeveloper 10g Enhances Productivity in Grid and Service-Oriented Architectures
Redwood Shores, California, USA. April 14, 2004.
Oracle JDeveloper 10g, the newest release of Oracle's award-winning Java and Web services development environment, is now available. This version features Oracle Application Development Framework (ADF), an innovative "productivity layer" that simplifies application development, enabling developers of all skill levels to create J2EE applications and Web services.
"We've been using Oracle JDeveloper to develop our Enterprise Java Beans-based business services, and are now leveraging Oracle ADF to develop the Web interface for the system," said Les Morton, project team leader at Associated Wholesalers Inc., an early adopter of Oracle JDeveloper 10g. "Oracle JDeveloper simplifies the development of our J2EE application with its visual approach to development and its productive and open framework. This tool helps us accelerate our development cycle, providing a higher ROI for IT projects at our company."
Support for Service-Oriented Architectures (SOAs) Brings Greater Flexibility
Oracle JDeveloper 10g helps developers use the latest Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) development methodologies to quickly and easily assemble more efficient applications from a set of shared business services. Now, developers can create more flexible applications that seamlessly evolve with changing business requirements, such as integrating systems after an acquisition, customizing hosted applications for a new client, or expanding data collection and analysis across several strategic partners.
"The emergence of SOAs and grid computing are essential to making the agile enterprise a reality," said Mark Driver, vice president and research director, Gartner Group. "By building Web services for enterprise grid computing, applications become easier to maintain, manage, access and integrate to respond to changing business needs."
Delivering Productivity With Choice
Today's developers often find they must choose between productivity and openness when selecting tools because many vendors focus their innovations on proprietary technologies that lock developers into a specific platform. In contrast, Oracle continues to champion open industry standards by architecting Oracle JDeveloper 10g to use 100 percent open J2EE and Web services interfaces and supporting deployment to any J2EE-compatible application server.

Oracle JDeveloper 10g is immediately available for free download and evaluation from the Oracle developer community Web site, Oracle Technology Network (http://otn.oracle.com), and can be purchased for US $995 per named user.
