Oracle has said it will continue support for the Itanium chipset on which HP's Integrity server products are based, seemingly ending its long-running legal with its rival over the issue.
Oracle had said it would stop supporting the chipset in 2011, claiming that Intel had made it clear it was not a primary focus for the future and as such there was no need to continue future support for the platform.
However, Intel, and crucially HP which has many products running on Itanium chips, took legal action against Oracle. In August, the presiding judge ruled a contract between the firms was valid and ordered that Oracle must continue support the chipset.
At the time the firm said it would appeal the ruling.
"We plan to appeal the Court's ruling while fully litigating our cross claims that HP misled both its partners and customers," it said.
However, it now appears that Oracle has dropped this stance and is willing to adhere to the judge's ruling.
"Oracle will continue building the latest versions of its database and other software covered by the judge's ruling to HP Itanium computers," it said in a statement.
"Oracle software on HP's Itanium computers will be released on approximately the same schedule as Oracle software on IBM's Power systems."
V3 contacted HP for comment on the announcement from Oracle but the firm declined to comment.
The decision from Oracle comes as it plans to reopen a case against another bitter rival, SAP, over the theft of code by its subsidiary, TomorrowNow.
