Oracle has confirmed that its long-awaited Oracle8i database will be delayed by at least another two months, until early March. The company said all the code is written but it still has to be tested with Oracle Application Server, Oracle Applications and the Java development tool JDeveloper 2.0. Oracle8i will not include Oracle's much-demonstrated Internet File System (IFS) for storing applications, Web pages and multimedia data in the first release. IFS will be available in June. The company said the delay will have no effect on Oracle's Raw Iron database appliance project, which is scheduled for April.
