How To Install Oracle JDeveloper (with Java EE support) On Snow Leopard

  1. Download JDeveloper from: [1 GB = 300 MB JDeveloper + 700MB WLS]
  2. *Before* you start the installation, follow the instructions in the release notes. You will have to create a symbolic link as root. Note: the DirectoryUtility is located in /System/Library/CoreServices/Directory and the path to JDK 1.6 on Snow Leopard is: /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.6.0/Home/
  3. Execute the downloaded jar with java -jar jdevstudio11111install.jar
  4. JUnit support is not included in the package, but can be downloaded from the extensions afterwards.
The whole procedure, with Oracle's WebLogic Server installation takes about 0.5h-1h.


Does JDeveloper have deployment support for anything besides WLS and Tomcat?

Oracle should bundle it pre-installed in a ubuntu image. A few bytes more or less...

And you get no Java EE javadoc completion in the java editor (unless I am blind, I see only method signatures) and no easy way (still trying to find it) to start a database...

I could crashed the vm process 2 times in 30 minutes, trying web services.
How long does it take for you to start a WebLogic server from the IDE?
