Oracle JDeveloper 11g: RTFM

After so many years of finding better answers through Google or Dev2Dev (moment of silence), I rarely use the help menu of applications anymore. Yesterday I was having trouble with one of the JDeveloper wizards. I searched Google, I searched OTN, I posted to discussion lists. No answer. Desperate to get past this issue, I opened the Help menu. I still didn’t find what I was looking for (I solved that by experimentation and guess work), but I did find all of the training material listed right there.


This would have saved me days of navigating around OTN, where I did not find the training I needed that was right in the IDE all the time.

Interesting lesson learned, and the first application of the alternative definition of RTFM I read recently: Read The Fancy Manual
