Xythos Software announced that its WebFile Client will support Oracle Application Server 10g, a middleware offering that simplifies the management of applications running in a grid computing environment. Together, the products help simplify the process of publishing and managing any type of content by leveraging WebDAV and exposing the portal content management features of Oracle Application Server 10g directly within the Windows Explorer desktop environment. Users can edit and publish content and associated metadata, version files, and set access controls directly from their preferred desktop applications, helping to simplify the publishing process. In addition, the WebFile Client also introduces offline file synchronization. The WebFile Client for Oracle Application Server 10g is expected to be commercially available beginning in October 2003.
