Oracle 8i and Java : From Client Server to E-Commerce
Oracle--whose sales rank it as the world's #1 database, #2 software, and #2 ERP company-has turned itself on a dime, and has proclaimed that THE INTERNET CHANGES EVERYTHING, and so it changes Oracle. All things Oracle must be Internet or E-business -oriented, and that means JAVA. And for Java Programmers who want to create e-business solutions, they must learn Oracle, since 90% of all e-business solutions include Oracle. This is the hottest and most important development relating to Oracle in 1999-2000.
