I guess no one has missed this. For those of us working in the Middleware area I believe that this is really good news. For sure, some of the products do have an overlap, but what's more important is that the BEA stack will fill in some of the gaps that I think we have had in the past in our middleware stack. I won't dwell more on this now, but will get back with more details in later posts. Most of the information about Oracle & BEA can be found here.
One link that I'd just like to highlight is the Partner Frequently Asked Questions (quite obvious as I'm working with our strategic partners...).
As always, being away for a few weeks will give a list of new and interesting products to use. Here is a short list of some of the highlights in my opinion:
- Oracle WebLogic Server 10.3
- Oracle JRockit
- Oracle JDeveloper (10.1.3.4)
Notice that there is also a separate standalone ADF Installer, for those of you installing the ADF runtime on a server...
- Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse 1.0
- Oracle Complex Event Processing 2.0
- Oracle BEA Product Downloads
All Oracle BEA products downloads on one page...
