is there another way to collaborate in JDeveloper where composite.xml can be shared so that each developer's changes could be merged later on? We will highly appreciate a solution to this problem.
Thanks vladodias for replying.
Is that an official response from Oracle. If each developer has to create his/her own branch, this is not a true collaboration in real time. Oracle is not able to exploit the merging capabilities of underneath source control plug-in. They should rather put their efforts on improving the development experience. I have a strong feeling that the TFS plug-in is a bare minimal source control plug-in and Oracle's claim about colloboration using JDeveloper are bogus and mis-leading. May be Oracle should try to provide SOA & BPM plug-ins for Eclipse since it is a mature IDE and seems to have an improved developer's experience since Microsoft has a TFS client for it.
Thanks again for your reply.

Oracle Discussion Forums FAQ
What are Oracle Discussion Forums?
Oracle Discussion Forums is an interactive community for sharing information, questions, and comments about Oracle products and related technologies. Most forums are moderated by product managers, and all of them are frequently visited by knowledgeable users from the community. Today, Oracle Forums contain nearly 2.5 million messages about every conceivable nuance of using Oracle products or supported standards.
Are Oracle Discussion Forums for obtaining support from Oracle?
No; Oracle Discussion Forums are designed for peer-to-peer knowledge sharing only; people with urgent support matters should always use MetaLink. (There are rare exceptions: users of some free products, such as Oracle SQL Developer and Oracle Database XE, do in fact use Oracle Discussion Forums as their support channel.)
If each developer has to create his/her own branch, this is not a true collaboration in real time.If you do some research around you will notice that several projects around the world have used approaches like that... Not sure what you mean by "true collaboration in real time"... For me that sounds like developers continuously breaking each others code... Please, let me know in what tool you have been able to achieve this without branching...

May be Oracle should try to provide SOA & BPM plug-ins for Eclipse since it is a mature IDE...Totally agree... I can see where you came from and I totally agree that Eclipse is a better IDE than JDEV, but unfortunately it seems that Oracle's strategy is in favour of JDEV at the moment... :(
