    REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., April 24 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ --
 (http://www.oracle.com/tellmemore/?676186 )  Developers today have numerous
 options for building e-business applications, but a recent review in InfoWorld
 reveals that Oracle JDeveloper can greatly reduce the complexity and time
 commitment of application development, dramatically increasing development
 productivity. Oracle JDeveloper, the industry's first Java and eXtensible
 Markup Language (XML) integrated development environment, received
 commendations for its enhanced productivity gains when creating business
 logic, which typically consumes the bulk of application development. In fact,
 InfoWorld test drove Oracle JDeveloper and found that e-commerce applications
 are created roughly 15 percent faster with Oracle JDeveloper, versus manual
 coding. Overall, InfoWorld gave Oracle Jdeveloper a "very good" rating with a
 nod to its "beefy support for business logic creation, straightforward
 development aids and good debugging facilities."
     Included as part of Oracle Internet Developer Suite, Oracle JDeveloper is
 a full-featured J2EE (Java 2 Enterprise Edition) and XML development
 environment with end-to-end support for developing, testing, and debugging
 high-performance Web applications and services. Oracle JDeveloper delivers
 innovative solutions for unified Java, XML and SQL development with the
 industry's fastest Java debugger and the unique CodeCoach tool for code
 performance analysis and tuning.
     To optimize the productivity of Java and XML developers, Oracle JDeveloper
 includes re-entrant wizards, color-coded editors, syntax checkers, and visual
 design tools for quickly developing applications and components according to
 the latest J2EE specifications, including applets, JavaBeans, JavaServer Pages
 (JSP), servlets, Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) objects,
 Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB), and XML applications using Java Message Service
 (JMS). Oracle JDeveloper also includes Business Components for Java -- a Java
 and XML framework that provides an easy and productive way to build, reuse,
 deploy, and customize transactional business logic for use across different
 browser clients, from Web to wireless.
