Oracle Corp., said 8i, its latest database program, designed to work seamlessly with the Internet, was now available from dealers. In January, they postponed shipment of 8i to allow more time for integrating other software and development tools with the product. It was originally slated to ship by the end of 1998. 8i has tools such as a built-in Java Virtual Machine, an “Internet file system,” which will store and manage Web pages, multimedia data, word processing files and spreadsheets, and XML support. The database runs on Windows NT, Solaris and Hewlett-Packard’s Unix, among others. www.oracle.com
