Last updated on MARCH 06, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle JDeveloper - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


It is not possible to use the XML editor features in a new JDeveloper workspace because the items under "General > XML" are all greyed out and cannot be selected.

This can be verified with the following steps:
1. Open JDeveloper
2. Click on "File > New > From Gallery..." or "File > New > Application..."
3. In the appearing popup, in the "Categories" pane, click on "General > XML": all the items in "Items" pane cannot be selected as they are greyed out.
