Oracle wants more database support in Eclipse

3

uk.builder.com reports that Oracle wants more database support in the Eclipse IDE.

Oracle is going to develop database support for Eclipse. This software will be released and donated to the Eclipse project as open source.

The tool will fully support the EJB 3.0 specification. Oracle is hoping that this EJB specification will finally be adopted in next generation J2EE applications.

  1. The original Oracle announcement can be found here: url:

    With the recent announcement by Oracle that it is leading the Eclipse project to provide the EJB 3.0 O/R mapping tools as part of the Web Tools Project a standard persistence tools platform is being formed. This will provide the infrastructure for meeting the EJB 3.0 goal of making this a technology that entry-level developers can understand and feel comfortable using. The learning curve to use EJB just got a lot shorter.

    The Eclipse WebTools project http://eclipse.org/webtools/index.html: The Eclipse Web Tools Platform (WTP) project extends the Eclipse platform with tools for developing J2EE Web applications. The WTP project includes the following tools: source editors for HTML, Javascript, CSS, SQL, XML, DTD, XSD, and WSDL; graphical editors for XSD and WSDL; J2EE project natures, builders, and models and a J2EE navigator; a Web service wizard and explorer, and WS-I Test Tools; and database access and query tools and models. The first release of the WTP project is scheduled for mid July 2005

  2. Still wondering what Oracle’s current stance is on their Eclipse/JDeveloper ‘problem’, any news on that?
