Oracle will unbundle the query and reporting tool element of its Developer/2000 environment next week and ship it as a standalone product.
While Developer/2000 users will still receive the product as part of their licence, along with the traditional Forms and Graphics elements, version 3.0 of Reports will now cost $2,495 per developer licence and $195 per concurrent user as a separate tool.
Kieran Kilmartin, Oracle?s development tools product manager, said: ?This is not aimed at the decision support market, but at Oracle users who want to build and design quite sophisticated reports to run on the Developer/2000 Server without having to buy the full Developer/2000 environment. It?s for people who have standardised on other development enviroments, but that would like to use our reporting tool.?
He added that developers could choose to deploy their completed reports in either a batch processing or thin client/browser environment.
The upgrade runs on Windows 95 and NT and includes native drivers to Sybase, Informix, Microsoft and IBM relational databases.
