I've been developing ADF projects at client sites for over 4 years now (wow, that went fast!). The purpose of this blog is to point out the first things I do on every project to make it run smoothly. Two of these are JDeveloper configurations, but I sometimes miss them after I've installed a new version of JDeveloper or have a new laptop to work with.
