Java Developers are to benefit from a new release of Oracle JDeveloper and the Oracle Application Development Framework.
The enhanced tools address Web 2.0 and mobile application development requirements.
At Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco, Oracle has announced Oracle JDeveloper 11g and Oracle Application Development Framework (ADF) 11g, both components of Oracle Fusion Middleware.
A Java-based Integrated Development Environment (IDE) offering, Oracle JDeveloper 11g provides a unified design and development experience, featuring advanced tooling and visual development for all Java EE 5 standards and APIs.
"Developers are faced with a multitude of technologies and learning curves for building Web 2.0, mobile and rich enterprise applications, adding complexity and cost to the development process," said Ted Farrell, chief architect and senior vice-president at Oracle.
"Oracle JDeveloper and Oracle ADF address these complexities by abstracting developers from the underlying technologies, providing an immense productivity boost for standards-based application development."
Under the Oracle Technology Network licence, Oracle JDeveloper 11g and Oracle ADF 11g are free to download for evaluation and use during development.
A production licence for Oracle ADF is included with all editions of Oracle Application Server and Oracle WebLogic Server, or can be licensed separately. Oracle JDeveloper is free of charge, with an option for technical support that can be purchased separately.
