Oracle today made its biggest splash during the OpenWorld conference, announcing new products and updates to a number of its existing products.

First up, Oracle went to work touting a new content management package it's calling Oracle Files 10g. The server software due out next year will be available as a standalone product and as a module for the Oracle Collaboration Suite 10g. Oracle is pitching the product as a type of broad content management tool that can be molded to serve different vertical markets. The software can be used for a variety of tasks such as file management, file sharing and work flow. Partners including Adobe, Sun Microsystems and Network Appliance all pledged to build their own tools that tap into the Files 10g software.

Oracle also announced that Release 2 of its Application Server product will arrive this month. The company said the new release will work better with the latest version of J2EE (Java 2 Enterprise Edition) and a host of web services standards. Oracle has been trying to gain share in the Application Server market from IBM and BEA.

Away from Oracle's controlled messaging, the company was taken to task for delaying a significant update to its Collaboration Suite. The Collaboration Suite 10g software will not arrive until the middle of next year, which is at least a year delay, according to a report from IDG News Service.

"We delayed it a little so we can have a robust content management offering as part of Collaboration Suite 10g," Rob Koplowitz, a senior director of product marketing at Oracle told IDG. "What overwhelmed us was this immense demand for content management functionality."

Good spin. ®
