How do I install the plugin into JDeveloper

In order to install the plugin into JDeveloper or later, you must first create a JDeveloper installation bundle. To create the bundle, you use the provided installer.

  1. Open a shell and change into the directory where the installer resides

  2. Type java -jar jalopy-setup-1.9.4.jar --jdeveloper to create the JDeveloper installation bundle files

    The installer will create different sub-directories that contain the installation bundles for different JDeveloper target versions. You can install these bundles from within JDeveloper

  3. Open or switch to JDeveloper, and open Help->Check for Updates...

  4. The JDeveloper update wizard appears. Skip the intro page if it should be displayed

  5. Select Install From Local File and choose the bundle file the installer created. The file can be found in the update-center-11.1.2 directory relative to the installer. The installation bundle file is called jalopy-1.9.4-bundle.zip

  6. Proceed to the next page where the summary information is displayed. Press Finish to finalize the installation

  7. JDeveloper needs to be restarted before the plugin will work. Actually, the plugin installation will only take place during the next time you start JDeveloper.

    Confirm the dialog and restart JDeveloper to enable the plugin
