Oracle announced that it is furthering its commitment to the Java developer community by making Oracle JDeveloper 10g available for free to all developers. Additionally, Oracle is proposing to spearhead a JavaServer Faces (JSF) tooling project within the Eclipse Foundation open-source community and will also join the Apache MyFaces project as a core contributor.

Some developers, however, disagree that what Oracle is offering is really a benefit. They are quick to point out that while making this move, Oracle has eliminated the biggest selling point of JDeveloper: free runtime license for ADF and choice of Application Server/Database.
