Oracle to Bundle Symantec's Visual Page

Oracle Corp. and Symantec Corp. announced a bundling agreement today aimed at enabling customers to easily create enterprise business applications.

Oracle will include Symantec's Visual Page Web authoring program with Oracle Application Server 4.0, which is currently in beta.

Oracle said the inclusion of the Visual Page HTML editor will allow users to easily move business documents and crucial company information to the Web.

Under the agreement, Oracle can bundle a copy of Visual Page with each Oracle Application Server 4.0 Developer Kit License beginning this quarter.

"Rapid application creation is a key requirement for the deployment for Web-based business applications," said Peter Relan, vice president of the Application Server Products Division at Oracle. "Symantec's Visual Page will help our customers expedite application deployment and modification with an easy-to-use environment based on the scalable and secure deployment capabilities of Oracle Application Server."

Oracle Application Server 4.0, which is designed to support all network clients including PCs and network computers, is a software platform for deploying business-critical, thin-client applications.
