Oracle JDeveloper: Is this IDE dead? Are there new releases?

Some weeks ago i read the Java Magazine (http://www.javamagazine.mozaicreader.com)

They report from a survay taken place in 2018 about Java. One of the questions was which application server do you use in production:

This was not really amazing.

API Platform – Plans & Subscriptions

When it comes to Plans and Subscriptions on the Oracle API Platform we have a very flexible set of relationships. When it comes to checking the relationships to ensure a configuration is correct and that the impact of changing a plan or subscription is clear.  I end up having to draw a little diagram, which always leaves me second guessing myself about which way the linkages are. So I created a quick aide memoir, (more...)

Updated Version of Optimized WebLogic Image on Docker

Yesterday I published my solution for an optimized WebLogic Image on Docker (https://dirknachbar.blogspot.com/2019/05/optimized-weblogic-image-on-docker.html). The yesterdays version was limited to the usage of Oracle Server JRE 8u152, due to an Oracle Bug 27117282.

As you can see from the above screenshot, Cloud Control was able to show me the correct status (UP), but Cloud Control could not see any metrics or even no configured Virtual Hosts.
