JDeveloper Version: 188.8.131.52.0
There are a couple of useful IDE features that may not be so obvious because those are not always accessible by the menu but only through shortcuts. So in this post I just want to show some of the cool features that makes one more productive while developing.
Tag-Documentation (Press Ctrl-D on a Tag)
Javadoc-Documentation (Press Ctrl-D on a class or method in java source code)
Javadoc-Documentation (Press Alt and Mouse Over on a class or method in java source code)
Quick Source View (Shift+ Mouse Over Sourcefiles in Application navigator)
This also works for Java Sourcecode of course:
Block Coloring (new in JDev 184.108.40.206)
Quick Preview in Taskflow (Shift+Mouse Over view-activity)
Quick file switch (Strg+TAB)
Go to Java Type (Ctrl+-)
Alternatively use the search box in the top right corner of the IDE
to quickly find the file you are looking for. In most cases you will be faster than searching manually in the application navigator.
Quick Outline/Method navigation (Ctrl+Shift+O)
Customize and explore
And of course you can customize your IDE shortcuts under Preferences>Shortcut keys
And of course it is good place to explorer new CodeEditor features.
There are still some features I am missing. used from e.g. Eclipse. This is
- Ctrl+D: Delete current line
- Alt+Arrow Up/Down: Move current line/block up down. This is really cool once you get used to it!
