Oracle yesterday broadened its enterprise-class application server offering across the SME market with a release featuring all the technology a company needs to begin developing and deploying Java applications and web services.
The vendor claimed that the immediate release of Oracle9i Application Server Java Edition means that companies can now purchase an integrated enterprise Java software package which includes an application server and an integrated development environment (IDE).
Oracle said that it will offer complete development and deployment capabilities for transactional business applications, web services, dynamic websites and e-commerce storefronts.
"This release will help Oracle and its strong reseller community seed the lucrative SME markets, while also addressing the needs of large enterprise companies," said Thomas Kurian, senior vice president of development for Oracle9i Application Server.
The server features Java containers and transaction management tools for the Java 2 Enterprise Edition platform alongside Jdeveloper, a complete Java IDE.
An HTTP server offers support for XML and web services, while Enterprise Manager provides end-to-end web-based system management and advanced clustering to ensure reliability on low-cost hardware running Linux, Windows or Unix.
The product is available immediately from the Oracle Technology Network site here. It is priced at $5,000 per processor and standard e-business discounts are applicable.
Embedded licences of Oracle9i Application Server Java Edition are free of charge to independent software vendors which are members of the Oracle Partner Network.
