Established amongst the majors of the computer world, Oracle Corp is now pushing into the lower end and has announced multi-user support for its AT&T 3B2 Unix and Santa Cruz Operation’s Xenix Developer’s Kit. The multi-user version of Oracle is a specially priced and licensed copy of the distributed relational database management system, packaged to help application developers on smaller machines become more familiar with the SQL-based technology. The developer’s kit is designed to enable application developers to evaluate Oracle and the company says the enhancement of the Developer’s Kit to allow evaluation of multi-user DBMS applications will enable real-world prototyping under Unix and Xenix. The Developer’s Kit for the 3B2 and Xenix micros supports networking for TCP/IP under Oracle’s SQL*Star distributed architecture. As a result Oracle says that users can link together all types of machines in a TCP/IP network and offer distributed access among the systems to all users. For a limited time, a Developer’s Kit licence for Oracle with the SQL*Forms application development environment; SQL*Plus ad hoc query system; and PRO*C, C language programmer’s SQL preprocessor is $399 on both AT&T’s 3B2 and on micros running Santa Cruz Operation’s Xenix 2.1.3. Standard, full-use Oracle plus tools licences for the 3B2 go from $6,000 to $14,000, depending on the model of 3B2.
