Yesterday, JDeveloper 12.1.3 crashed for me, showing the usual friendly “I’m-about-to-crash-do-you-want-to-save-first” dialog. The interesting thing is not that it crashed (it happens to the best of software ;-), but that it took three weeks of work before I experienced this. Since JDeveloper 12.1.2 would crash about 5 times a day, one crash in 15 days means stability has improved by a factor of about 75. I’ve been critical of the stability of JDeveloper 12.1.2 in the past, so I’d like to point out that the frequent crashes that plagued 12.1.2 seem to be gone. In addition to the improved stability, the 12.1.3 version has some useful new features, including feature alignment with SQL Developer 4.0. If you have been running JDeveloper together with SQL Developer 4.0 for your Java/Database development, you might only need JDeveloper now. If you’ve been waiting for an opportune moment to move forward to JDeveloper 12c, now is the time.
jdeveloper initial installation both on Mac OS and RHEL 7.0 crashes and wouldnt come up easily. Not sure if this would be fixed soon.
