Better flexibility in AS
10g"> Another flexibility in Application Server 10g is the power to control port numbers and host names. In earlier releases, once installed, host names or port numbers couldnt be changed. This becomes an important issue when moving from development to production. Usually, when people install, they do so on a test set of systems, in order to work out how the application will be configured. Choice of port numbers is also an issue for those organizations that have standards regarding what port numbers to use for which types of applications. "Without that flexibility, youre real limited and you cant keep to your own standards," Cox pointed out.Enough of the accolades. Was there anything these IOUG members didnt like about 10g? Anything that Oracle still needs to work on? Nope, they said. For now, Cox and Floss are happy with their 10g trials. "My wish list has been answered," Cox said.Merry Christmas, indeed.
