It is a very good development environment, it can be used for Java, XML, HTML and other languages. I can create Java programs easily and quickly on my computer, so that they work later on any hardware platform. Its interface is very comfortable and intuitive so it is easy to understand every functionality of the JDeveloper.
What I like the most about its functionalities is that it has a group of integrated builders, wizards for the creation of new components, previsualizers and appropriate palettes, allowing developers an easy and sophisticated construction, multi-language interactive data forms, reports and graphics. .
Jdeveloer offers me the necessary tools for the creation of SOA services, generating the JCA for the operation of the service, it is something I do frequently in my current job and from the beginning I found it easy to use, which is why I liked it a lot.
It is very slow when opening.
It is very heavy and therefore makes the execution of programs slow.
It has happened to me that when I want to create a new project and use the Wizard to search for the project to be carried out, I do not see the option I want.
Its installation and configuration can be tedious.
It is buggy and crashes many times espeically when one does refactoring or deleting some resources
As a SOA consultant, I can safely say that the Jdeveloper has helped me a lot, usually I have to create many services with Service Oriented Architecture and the tool makes it much easier.
