The Redwood Shores, Calif., database behemoth will announce Wednesday at Apple Computer Inc.s annual Worldwide Developers Conference and at the JavaOne developer conference, both in San Francisco, that Oracle JDeveloper 10g and Database 10g will be downloadable from the Oracle Technology Network (OTN) during the second half of the year.
The technology will be available to developers using the most current version of Apples Unix-based operating system, Mac OS X.
According to Oracles news release, Oracle Database 10g Early Adopters Release 2 is available now for free download and evaluation to registered OTN members. The production version of Oracle Database 10g for Mac OS X is scheduled to be available for free download in the second part of the year, as is JDeveloper 10g.
Oracle claims that its 10g technology will benefit Java developers who are creating J2EE applications and Web services because of the open standards-based nature of JDevelopers J2EE framework.
