Oracle Unveils New App Server At Its Big Show

While most of the chatter at this week's Oracle OpenWorld confab will doubtless center on Oracle's planned buy of Siebel Systems, there will be some plain ol' product news as well.

At the San Francisco event, the company is announcing Oracle Application Server 10g Release 3, due later this fiscal year ending May 2006.

This is a "major update to the company's SOA platform and hot-pluggable architecture," said Rick Schultz, vice president of Fusion Middleware for the Redwood Shores, Calif., database giant.

And, Oracle—now with many PeopleSoft and perhaps Siebel customers who run on Oracle, IBM or Microsoft software—is expected to play up its good corporate citizenship.

"We're committed to not only Java Web services and SOA standards but also to certifying a broad range of third-party products —something like 128" for use with the middleware, Schultz told CRN.
