External tools in JDeveloper

With External tools, you can easily perform tasks based on external programs.
One of the 'default' external tools is 'Explore Directory'

To enable the standard tools, simply click the Tools menu and select external tools.
JDev offers to search for popular tools. It'll offer tools like expore directory, notepad (yeah, right...) Word etc.

Specifically, the tool Explore Directory is interesting since the structure of the project in JDev is not always the structure on disk.

You can also define your own external tools, based on Apache Ant or an external program.
Simply specify the program to execute, the arguments how the tools should be integrated and when the tool must be available.
