Oracles updated JDeveloper, a free Java IDE, is a polished and comprehensive tool set that vies with high-priced competitors for Web services development efforts.

SHORT-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // With prom-ised support on Linux and Solaris as well as Windows NT, 2000 and XP, JDeveloper creates new options for multiplatform Java development in a complete and highly configurable tool.

LONG-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // Extensive facilities for Web services development, backed by Oracles commitment to a standards-based services platform, make JDeveloper a low-cost introduction to Oracles full-scale (and high-priced) Internet Developer Suite—an alternative in both tools and platform strategy to Microsofts more affordable but Windows-focused Visual Studio .Net Enterprise editions.

Polished development environment with extensive tools.

Code analysis aids depend on manual coverage of dynamically loaded modules.
