JDeveloper is a IDE tool used to develop SOA Suite applications and projects. Follow below steps to install it.
Download the JDeveloper setup file. Oracle JDeveloper comes as executable jar file so we need to run it using command prompt. Open the command prompt and go to java bin folder and run below command.
Java -jar Jdeveloper_jar_File_Path
Setup will extract the file and run the installer.
We can choose either existing middleware home or can create a new home for JDeveloper. Sometime we can face issue when we use same middleware home where we have installed SOA Suite server so in that case we need to create separate middleware home for JDeveloper Installation.
