Had some interesting news that our team in the UK is taking over the Spring tooling in JDeveloper. There has been for a long while support for Spring tooling provided as an optional extension written by Duncan Mills. This will be the first time that a team has been able to work on it full time.
Of course don't expect to see anything that is the result of this change until a release after R11 PS1*. We would of course be interested to hear any views and opinions on what lovely** new features that related to Spring integration that users would be interested in.
* Standard disclaimer, this statement shouldn't be taken as a promise that we will ship this feature at any point in the future. Nor does it promise we will ever ship another version of JDeveloper.
** The lovelyness of your new feature may down as well as up
