Oracle has increased its support for Java and Web developers with a variety of new tools.
Oracle has announced previews of new releases of Oracle JDeveloper and Oracle Application Development Framework (Oracle ADF).
In addition, Oracle has donated 80 Ajax-enabled JavaServer Faces components to the open-source Apache Foundation.
A new release of Oracle Application Server, a key component of Oracle Fusion Middleware, is also available for preview.
Oracle said the Oracle JDeveloper and Oracle ADF offerings include advanced tooling and visual development for all Java EE 5 standards and APIs, enabling developers to quickly use the latest Java technologies.
The 80 Ajax-enabled, JSF 1.2-based client components would support the rapid creation of interactive user interfaces for Web applications, said Oracle.
The latest update to Oracle Application Server includes several new features for easing deployment for RIAs. New features include Java EE 5 compatibility, including support for the EJB 3, JPA, JAX-WS, JSF 1.2, and WS-Policy standards for configuring reliable and secure Web services.
