Oracle Unveils Oracle® Developer Depot—Industry’s Easiest Discover-to-Deploy Tool and Source Code


Repository For Java and SOA Application Developers
New Software Simplifies Application Assembly and Reduces Development Time and Effort via Existing Code Discovery and Reuse

ORACLE OPENWORLD, SAN FRANCISCO 23-OCT-2006 Oracle today announced the Oracle® Developer Depot, a free, downloadable developer productivity tool that dramatically simplifies the way Java developers find, configure and provision Java applications for learning or prototyping purposes. As an integrated component of Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Developer Depot provides an ideal complement to Oracle’s powerful, end-to-end Java platform by facilitating development of Java and Service-Oriented Architecture-based applications.

As software shifts away from single, monolithic applications to assemblies of easily configurable services, developers are changing the way they work. In order to speed the development process, programmers now often develop new applications by reusing existing or sample code as a starting point. However, obtaining, configuring and deploying code can be a lengthy and error-prone process. Oracle Developer Depot, which runs on Oracle Application Server 10g, eliminates the complexity of the discover-to-deploy process by providing a library of reusable sample application code that can be downloaded and deployed with a single click. As a result, programmers without Java experience can have an application up and running rapidly, and more experienced developers can get a head start on complex projects to meet business requirements quickly.

“Oracle Developer Depot makes it simple and fast to locate cool and useful Java applications, and download and install them in one easy step, complete with source code,” said Steven G. Harris, vice president Java Platform Group, Oracle. “Click, deploy, run. The simplicity makes it the fastest way for any Java developer to get up to speed on new technologies and standards, and to become productive more quickly.”

Oracle Developer Depot leverages popular Web 2.0 technologies such as Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (AJAX), the Spring 2.0 Framework and Real Simple Syndication (RSS) to facilitate code reuse and simplify the development process. Once deployed, Oracle Developer Depot can establish RSS-based communication between Oracle Application Server 10g and a remote repository for application and code archives such as the Oracle Technology Network. Oracle Developer Depot will alert developers when updates and new application code are available, which they can download and deploy as needed with one click.

Oracle’s Commitment to Java Developers
Oracle has been a leading supporter of the Java platform since it was introduced in 1995. Oracle recognizes that a key element in driving the adoption of the next generation Java platform, Java EE 5, is simplification of development around EJB 3.0 and JavaServer Faces (JSF), a Web application framework designed to enable developers to more easily build user interfaces for enterprise Java applications. As the co-specification lead for the recently approved EJB 3.0 specification, Oracle has donated significant time and resources toward developing standards and donating technology that will simplify application development. In addition to providing TopLink Essentials as the JPA reference implementation, Oracle is leading the JPA Eclipse project, Dali. Oracle is also a founding member of the JavaServer Faces expert group in the Java Community Process (JCP) and is spearheading a JSF tooling project within the Eclipse Foundation open-source community to be released later this year. Oracle also joined the Apache MyFaces project as a core contributor.
