OpenWorld Keynote Announcements: R12.1, Beehive, DB, Jdeveloper 11g, My Oracle Support

Update: Removed GA of 12.1, due later!

A quick wrapup of the announcements of interest to me from the OpenWorld keynotes this morning:

From OpenWorld Keynote: Charles Phillips and Chuck Rozwat

  • Oracle eBusiness Suite Release 12.1 General Availability (GA) available soon (perhaps the new year)
  • Oracle Beehive: a suite of collaboration tools including MS Outlook integration
  • Oracle JDeveloper Release 11g GA
  • Oracle Database Release
  • My Oracle Support: replacement for Oracle Metalink

From Oracle Develop: Ted Farrell

  • Oracle JDeveloper Release 11g GA
  • Oracle ADF 11g GA including 130+ JSF components (next week)
  • Oracle Toplink 11g GA
  • Oracle Enterprise Eclipse Pack focus

So that wraps up the biggest announcments so far. I was expecting R12.1 and JDev 11g, will be very interesting to follow the progress of Beehive and whether it can gain a footing against other specialist collaboration tools.

Update: Still awaiting details of the major database announcement later in the week... rumours are Database Accelerator... still guessing!
