The database software giant has inked a deal to license OpenConnect Systems' legacy data-to-Java application connectivity tools and will incorporate them into its Web Application Server and Network Computer client software.
Oracle will license OpenConnect's OC://WebConnect Pro software, which can initiate and maintain a secure connection between host systems and Java applets through standard Web browsers.
The software will be included at no additional charge with Oracle's $3,995 Web Application Server, a combination Web server and component middleware package, and with Oracle subsidiary Network Computer Incorporated's NC Desktop software.
The software gives NC users terminal emulation to host systems alongside Web application access.
Oracle will implement the OpenConnect software as a cartridge that plugs into its Web server.
