2.0 Installing JDeveloper Full Version

JDeveloper does not require an installer. To install JDeveloper, you will need an unzip tool. You can download a free, cross-platform unzip tool, Info-Zip, available at: http://www.info-zip.org/.

Alert: Do not install this JDeveloper release into any existing ORACLE_HOME. You will not be able to uninstall it using Oracle Universal Installer.

The full installation ( jdev9052.zip) includes the Windows version of Sun J2SE 1.4.2_03 and the JDeveloper documentation.

To install JDeveloper from jdev9052.zip:

Note: The remainder of this document uses <jdev_install> to represent the directory location in which JDeveloper was installed. For example, if JDeveloper was unzipped in c:\jdev10g, the <jdev_install> would be c:\jdev10g.

Back to TOC

3.0 Installing JDeveloper Base

For quicker download times, you can download the base install ( jdev9052_base.zip):

  • The base install requires that you already have 1.4..2_03 of the Sun J2SE on your machine, as the SDK is not included in the base install.
  • The base install, by default, does not include JDeveloper documentation. Instead, the base install requires a Web connection to access the documentation or you may separately install the documentation. See Adding Local Documentation to a Base Installation for details.

To install JDeveloper from jdev9052_base.zip:

  1. If you don't have Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition, version 1.4.2_03 installed, you can obtain it from: http://www.javasoft.com.
  2. Unzip jdev9052_base.zip in the directory you want to install JDeveloper.
  3. Set the variable SetJavaHome in the file <jdev_install>\jdev\bin\jdev.conf to the location of your SDK installation. Use an editor that recognizes UNIX end-of-line characters, such as WordPad. When you save the file, WordPad will warn you that it is about to save the file in text-only format. You can ignore this warning.

    For example, in a Windows environment, if the location of your Sun J2SE 1.4.2_03 is in a directory called j2sdk1.4.2_03 on your D: drive, your entry in jdev.conf would look like:

    SetJavaHome d:\j2sdk1.4.2_03
  1. In order to use the Profilers and CodeCoach, you will need to install OJVM, the specialized Oracle Java Virtual Machine for JDeveloper. The OJVM will also make the JDeveloper debugger run more quickly. See Installing OJVM on Windows in the next section.

    Note: The JDeveloper installation includes OJVM, and OJVM can be installed for use with JDeveloper, but this configuration is not supported by Oracle. For information about OJVM on Linux please refer to the JDeveloper Release Notes at: <jdev_install>/jdev/readme.html .

  2. If you want to use local documentation with JDeveloper, see Adding Local Documentation to a Base Installation.

3.1 Installing OJVM with a Base Installation on Windows

To use CodeCoach and the Profilers with a base installation you need to install OJVM, the specialized Oracle Java Virtual Machine for JDeveloper. OJVM will also increase the speed of the JDeveloper debugger, and provide automatic deadlock detection and memory debugging features. If you performed the complete installation using jdev9052.zip, OJVM was installed automatically. If you performed the base installation using jdev9052_base.zip, you will need to manually install OJVM into your SDK. The batch file InstallOJVM.bat (provided with JDeveloper) will copy OJVM files into the specified SDK and update the configuration of that SDK. The files are copied into a separate OJVM directory and will not overwrite any of the existing files in the SDK.

To install OJVM with a base installation:

  • In <jdev_install>\jdev\bin\ execute the command
    InstallOJVM.bat d:\j2sdk1.4.2_03
    where d:\j2sdk1.4.2_03 is the location of your SDK.

 

3.2 Adding Local Documentation to a Base Installation

 

To install the documentation set, download jdev9052_doc.zip from http://otn.oracle.com/products/jdev. You can install the documentation into JDeveloper, without any configuration, by extracting the files into <jdev_install> . The <jdev_install>\jdev\doc\ohj directory will be created as well as the <jdev_install>\jdev\tutorials directory.

If you install the documentation into any other local directory, you will need to configure the location in JDeveloper:

  1. Start JDeveloper.
  2. Select T ools | Preferences from the JDeveloper main menu.
  3. In the preferences tree, navigate to Documentation.
  4. Select the Use Local Documentation radio button.
  5. Set the full path to where the local documentation is installed, which by default is <jdev_install>\jdev\doc\ohj .

4.0 Installing JDeveloper on Non-Windows Platforms

This section provides additional instructions specific to installing JDeveloper on a non-Windows platform. Review these sections of the Installation Guide for general information:

OJVM, the specialized Oracle Java Virtual Machine enables CodeCoach and Profilers, increases the speed of the JDeveloper debugger, and provides automatic deadlock detection and memory debugging features.. The JDeveloper installation includes OJVM, and OJVM can be installed for use with JDeveloper, but this configuration is not supported by Oracle. For information about OJVM on Linux please refer to the JDeveloper Release Notes at: <jdev_install>/jdev/readme.html .

4.1 Modifying Permissions on a Non-Windows System

All JDeveloper files must have read permissions:

chmod -R g+r <jdev_install>

Users (or groups) must have write and execute permissions for the following files:

  • chmod +x <jdev_install>/jdev/bin/jdev
  • chmod +x <jdev_install>/jdev/bin/ojc
  • chmod +x <jdev_install>/BC4J/bin/bc4j2oc4j
  • chmod +x <jdev_install>/jdev/bin/start_oc4j
  • chmod +x <jdev_install>/jdev/bin/stop_oc4j

In addition, users (or groups) must have write permissions for the following (required for deployment):

Note: < jdev_install>/j2ee/home/application-deployments is not available until you run java -jar oc4j.jar -install

  • < jdev_install>/j2ee/home/application-deployments
  • < jdev_install>/j2ee/home/applications
  • < jdev_install>/j2ee/home/config

4.2 Configuring the Java SDK in JDeveloper on Non-Windows Platforms

The complete installation of JDeveloper is configured to use Java Sun J2SE 1.4.2_03 for Windows platforms. If you install JDeveloper on another platform, perform the following steps to configure JDeveloper to use the appropriate SDK.

  1. If you don't have Java 2SE, version 1.4.2_03 installed, install it. You can get a copy for many operating systems from http://www./javasoft.com, or check with your OS vendor where to obtain a copy.
  2. Set the variable SetJavaHome in the file <jdev_install>/jdev/bin/jdev.conf to the location of your Java installation.

    For example, in a UNIX environment, if the location of your Sun J2SE SDK is in a directory called /usr/local/java, your entry in jdev.conf would look like:

    SetJavaHome /usr/local/java

4.3 Font Problems in UNIX

If you see an error similar to:

Font specified in font.properties not found [--symbol-medium-r-normal--*-%d-*-*-p-*-adobe-fontspecific]

when starting  JDeveloper in a UNIX, your SDK isn't set up to use the font that is generating the error. JDeveloper, by default, uses the information in the file font.properties included with each SDK. If this file references fonts not available on your computer, you will see the above error (or one like it). To fix this error, you'll either need to install a new font, or change your font.properties file. For information on installing new fonts on your computer, contact your vendor. For information on updating the font.properties file, see Sun's Font Overview documentation or your SDK vendor's documentation.

4.4 Cursor Problems on Non-Windows Platforms

On UNIX or Linux platforms, the Java cursors display large and opaque, creating difficulties when used for drag and drop operations. To address this problem JDeveloper provides a set of cursors to replace the default set. You must have write access to the Java SDK in order to replace the cursors.

To replace the cursors:

  1. Make a back-up copy of the default cursors located in the SDK directory at:

    <jdk_install>/jre/lib/images/cursors

  2. Extract the replacement cursors from the tar file in JDeveloper at:

    <jdev_install>/jdev/bin/clear_cursors.tar

4.5 Reusing Mozilla Profile Instance

When using Mozilla on a non-Windows system, you will need to close the browser each time before running your web application again. You can avoid this problem and reuse your Mozilla profile instance by setting the browser command line with a -remote option.

To reuse a Mozilla profile instance:

  1. From the main menu of JDeveloper select Tools | Preferences | Web Browser and Proxy.
  2. In the Browser Command Line enter:

    /opt/mozilla/mozilla -remote openURL(${URL}) || /opt/mozilla/mozilla ${URL}

  3. Click OK.

10.0 Using JDeveloper in a Multi-user Environment

If you are using JDeveloper in a non-Windows environment, you will have to set permissions on directories and files. See Modifying Permission on a non-Windows System for more information.

You can install JDeveloper in Microsoft Terminal Server, Citrix MetaFrame and MetaFrame XP (for Windows), and MetaFrame 1.1 for UNIX environments, allowing many clients to access one installation of JDeveloper. In all cases, users can save their projects locally.

When installing and configuring JDeveloper for a multi-user environment, you'll need to account for the resource planning, such as number of users and power of the server, to deliver optimal performance for JDeveloper and your users.

10.1 Installing JDeveloper on a Citrix MetaFrame Server or a Microsoft Terminal Server

You need to have administrative privileges to install JDeveloper.

To Install JDeveloper on a Citrix MetaFrame or Microsoft Terminal Server:

  1. Install JDeveloper as described in Installing JDeveloper Full Version.
  2. Define the user home directory environment variable (see below).

10.2 Configuring User Home Directories in a multi-user Environment

Before you run JDeveloper in a terminal server environment, you must define the user home environment variable and set its value for each user in order for JDeveloper to identify user home directories correctly. If the variable is not defined and set, JDeveloper uses the <jdev_install>/jdev as the home directory for all users. Using this directory may cause unstable behavior in JDeveloper with multiple users.

To define the name of the user home environment variable:

  1. Open the file <jdev_install>\jdev\bin\jdev.conf in a text editor. Use an editor that recognizes UNIX end-of-line characters, such as WordPad.
  2. Find the entry:

    SetUserHomeVariable JDEV_USER_DIR


    This is the default variable that JDeveloper will look for at startup. As the terminal server's administrator, you may change the name of this variable to follow your system's naming conventions.
  3. Save the file. If you are using WordPad, it will warn you that it is about to save the file in text-only format. You can ignore this warning.

To set the environment variable:

Note: Each user of JDeveloper on a multi-user system must follow these procedures.

  1. From the Windows Start menu, select Control Panel | System.
  2. Select the Advanced tab, then click Environment Variables.
  3. In the User Variables section, click New.
  4. Add JDEV_USER_DIR, or the name you chose for the SetUserHomeVariable, as a user variable.
  5. Set the value of this variable to your home directory (e.g., N:\users\jdoe), and click OK.
  6. To check your variable setting, open a command shell and enter:

    set

    You should see output similar to the following:

    JDEV_USER_DIR=N:\users\jdoe
  7. Launch JDeveloper.
  8. JDeveloper will ask if you would like your user home directory to be created. Select Yes.
  9. Choose Help | About to verify that the value of ide.user.dir is set to your user home directory.

10.3 Configuring Terminal Server Clients for Running JDeveloper

These topics assume that you have already installed a Citrix MetaFrame or Microsoft Terminal Server client locally and that JDeveloper has been installed and configured by the System Administrator.

To configure a terminal server client for running JDeveloper:
  1. Verify that the color resolution of the terminal server client has been set to a minimum of 256 colors. This minimum resolution is required by Sun's SDK.
  2. Log on to your terminal server.
  3. Verify that the user home environment variable has been defined: Ask your System Administrator for the naming convention that is used on your system. The default variable is JDEV_USER_DIR.
  4. Set the user home environment variable: from the Windows Start menu, select Control Panel | System.
    1. Select the Advanced tab, then click Environment Variables.
    2. In the User Variables section, click New.
    3. Add the variable to User Variables and click OK.
      For example, you can define JDEV_USER_DIR as the variable containing the path to the user's home directory.
    4. To check the correct variable settings, open a command shell and enter:

      set

      You should see output similar to the following:

      JDEV_USER_DIR=n:\users\jdoe
  5. Launch JDeveloper.
  6. JDeveloper will ask if you would like your user home directory to be created. Select Yes.
  7. Choose Help | About to verify that the value of ide.user.dir is set to your user home directory.

If you run JDeveloper in a multi-user environment and you see the error

The system DLL ole32.dll was relocated in memory. The application will not run properly. The relocation occurred because the DLL Dynamically Allocated Memory occupied an address range reserved for Windows NT system DLL's. The vendor supplying the DLL should be contacted for a new DLL.

you'll need to update the <jdev_install>\jdev\bin\jdev.conf file by uncommenting the line:

AddVMOption -Xheapbase100000000

Use an editor that recognizes UNIX end-of-line characters, such as WordPad. You may have to change the number upward or downward if you still get the error when starting JDeveloper. When you save the file, WordPad will warn you that it is about to save the file in text-only format. You can ignore this warning.

In addition, you will need to set the same option with the same value in Project | D efault Project Settings | Runner | Java options.

To make this setting available to all users, the administrator should perform this change, exit JDeveloper and then copy the file:

<userhome>\system\DefaultWorkspace\Project1.jpr.

<jdev_install>\jdev\multi\system\DefaultWorkspace\Project1.jpr .

11.0 Using OC4J with JDeveloper

Included with JDeveloper is a fully functioning version of Oracle Application Server 10g (9.0.4) Containers for J2EE (OC4J). If you are using JDeveloper to test your applications, you will not have to make any modifications to your configuration.

If you performed the base installation of JDeveloper and wish to deploy your application to OC4J in standalone mode, you must set the JAVA_HOME variable to point to the full SDK. You must also modify jdev.conf to point to this SDK home. See Installing JDeveloper Base for more information.

You can start and stop the OC4J server in stand-alone mode using the provided start_oc4j.bat and stop_oc4j.bat files and shell scripts located in <jdev_install>\jdev\bin\. The start_oc4j batch file can be run either from Windows Explorer or the command line since no arguments are required; however the stop_oc4j batch file requires <admin> and <admin-password> on the command line. You can also run the following commands from the <jdev_install>\j2ee\home\ directory:

To configure the OC4J server for stand-alone mode:

  1. Execute the following command:

    java -jar $j2ee_home/oc4j.jar -install
  2. Enter and confirm the administrator password.

To start the OC4J server for use in stand-alone mode:

  • Execute the following command:

    java -jar $j2ee_home/oc4j.jar

To stop OC4J:

  • Execute the following command:

    java -jar $j2ee_home/admin.jar ormi://localhost/ <admin> <admin-password> -shutdown

For more information on fine tuning your OC4J server instance, see the OC4J documentation.

Note: The server must be running when you deploy projects to it.
