be released before the year end, the Application
Server 10g and over 432 new features in addition
to almost 3 million hours of testing.
Three new versions:
10.1.2 is the Application
10.1.3 is just the AS and Identity Management
Standard Edition One (SE1) is for small
Each of the new
releases is J2EE 1.4 certified and supports the
new Java 1.5 (Tiger). JDeveloper is again
tightly integrated, providing visual (drag and
drop) development and deployment. TopLink
now supports more than just an object-relation
mapping to include object-object mapping.
The UML feature (not very useful in the last
release) is much more capable. ADF includes Java
Server Faces support. ADF has also become
more powerful. The just release update to
the e-business suite is built using ADF.
Application Server supports "fully automatic"
upgrades and much improved high availability
features. One cool feature is the AS
flash-back. You can now flashback the
application server in the same manner that you
flashback the Oracle database. This
features allows you to return the application
server to an earlier configuration (does not
flashback the applications running on the AS).
Also there is an updated, industry standard BPEL
Portal now comes with an instant portal out of
the box. This is a complete build portal
that allows you to quickly create you portal by
modifying the instant portal. Apparently
this is in response to customers request due to
the complexity of the initial portal setup.
AS10gR2 Suite includes a number of new features
like Business Events Monitor and RFID tag
interfaces. The RFID tag interface
includes an RFID Edge Sever that converts the
numerous tag interfaces into which ever
interface you application uses. This
eliminates the need for you application to
support all these different standards. The
Business Event Monitors allows you to monitor
your business requirements from within the
application server, analysis the impact and fire
off alerts if necessary. "Like Oracle
Enterprise Manager but based on your business."
