Informix Software chief executive Phil White asked Oracle CEO Larry Ellison to return his software developers during a surprise visit to Ellison?s house, according to the Oracle leader.
The bitter database rivals have been consumed in recent weeks by a battle over developers who left Informix to join Oracle. Informix filed a lawsuit on 24 January alleging potential theft of trade secrets by 11 developers but Oracle chief Ellison has now hit back, suggesting the developers left because Informix bought Illustra Information Technologies, thus downplaying some of their projects.
"It bought Illustra rather than develop its next generation database inhouse," Ellison said. "When the developers came to Oracle we welcomed them." He denied Oracle had ?bought? Informix staff and said he told White that the developers "can do whatever they want" and came of their own free will. Informix acquired Illustra, with its Datablades technology, in February 1996.
