Oracle App Server Packs a "Wallop"

Oracle Corp. and Wallop Software this week announced a bundling agreement that integrates Wallop Build-IT for the Enterprise v2.5--a collaborative "workbench" used to build and maintain Web sites--with Oracle Application Server 4.0.

By including Build-IT with the Oracle Application Server, Oracle is providing customers with a powerful solution that offers a collaborative means for developing Web components, incorporating them into applications and then deploying them, providing more reliability for users.

Today's Web applications are more complex than ever before, requiring a diverse team of Web developers using an even more diverse set of authoring tools. One of the solutions to come from this need is the application server combined with a collaborative workbench environment.

This solution allows development teams to create separate components that can be assembled into functional, reliable, dynamic Web applications. This is just the type of solution that Oracle is looking for by combining the Oracle Application Server with Wallop Build-IT.

The new agreement allows Oracle to bundle a fully functional, one-user license of Wallop Build-IT for the Enterprise v2.5 with Oracle Application Server 4.0. Oracle Application Server 4.0 is currently in beta, and is planned for a first quarter 98 release.

The beta may be downloaded from the Oracle Lab Web site.
