My Personal Bug Parade of JDev 12.1.2 fixed in JDev 12.1.3

Last week (June, 26th 2014) JDev 12.1.3 arrived, today (June, 30th 2014) the ADF Mobile Extension for 12.1.3 was published. You can get it via the menu Help->”Check for Updates…”
However, the first thing I did over the weekend was to check my personal bug parade.

Good work! Only one bug didn’t make it into the first 12.1.3 release!

Working through all the test cases was kind of fun. My impression of the product is that it’s stable and easy to use. OK, I had no time playing around with the new features. This will be my task in the next weeks. Stay tuned for more on JDeveloper 12.1.3.

JDeveloper 12.1.3 is out!

Oracle JDeveloper 12cR1 aka JDeveloper 12.1.3 finally arrived. We had to wait almost a year for this version.
From my first day working with it I can say that it was time well spent. Some nasty bugs from version 12.1.2 are fixed, others still need checking. This will take me a couple of days.
I spare you listing all new features which you can find at ‘What’s new’.

You can download the version from the JDev home page.

Interestingly there are only three install packages, one for Windows, one for Linux and the generic installer. The platform specific install packages are only for 64 bit systems. A look into the certification matrix shows that 32 bit systems are only listed under ‘Other Operating Systems’. I’m not sure if this means that you can’t run this version on 32 bit Windows, or if 32 bit Windows is just ‘others’. I don’t have a 32 bit OS available, do I can’t test this. However, to install on a 32 bit system you have to download the generic installer (size 1.8GB).

The installation went smooth, under 1 minute on my 64GB i7 server with a big SSD running Ubuntu 14.04!
Be advised that some things in the configuration have changed. Stuff you are used to change in Jdev.conf (like jdk) has been moved to a new file product.conf which is stored at your home/.JDeveloper folder. This makes it easier to change the configuration like setting the ide.user.dir and some memory options. More information on this can be found in the ‘Installation Guide’.

It’s going to be a busy weekend checking out all the new stuff. Have fun using Jdev 12.1.3!
