Standard Extension API for Integrated Development Environments

From Oracle:

http://www.oracle.com/corporate/press/index.html?1518941.html

"...a new Application Programming Interface (API) specification designed to enable the creation of standards- based extensions that are fully interoperable with any Java Integrated Development Environment (IDE)"

"Leading Java technology vendors Sun Microsystems, Macromedia, and JetBrains are the first to support Oracle's submission of this Java Specification Request (JSR) 198 -- The Standard Extension API for Integrated Development Environments."

I'm glad to see that JetBrains is supporting this.

That's great! Hopefully, they'll get the BC4J wizards ported over so I can
finally rid myself of JDeveloper.
Or perhaps Oracle could see the wisdom of making a rebranded version of Idea
their recommended java IDE -
just like they when they bought a copy of JBuilder.

I'd love to see some companies rebrand IDEA. Anything to increase
awareness of the product. I wish Weblogic would go this route instead of
trying to create yet another IDE now that the Webgain thing has gone
down in flames.

Unfortunately, in Oracle's case I think this is less likely. They
haven't simply rebranded JBuilder, they licensed the source code and
have made extensive changes to it. In fact, the version that JDeveloper
is based upon is the old (part native-code) version.
