Developer Server 1.6.1 for Banner Web Forms

Currently SUNY is not licensed for Developer Server.  We have received certain versions in the past due to Oracle shipping errors and we now receive current versions due to the fact that Oracle now sends us software "bundles" which include the Developer Server.

This software is being made available for testing purposes only!

For Alpha OpenVMS the code is in GetSoftware.  The filename is ORADEV161SVRAXP.

For Alpha NT the code can be downloaded from: ftp://lofft3.itec.suny.edu/ftp1/alphant_developer_server_1.6.1.zip

For Intel NT we have a Developer/2000 version 4.0.1.6.1.  This is a special version that was packaged with Oracle Applications which we received by mistake.  I installed this and it installed Forms / Forms Server 4.5.10.6.0.  This can be downloaded from: HERE

Version 1.6 can be downloaded from: http://ng.itec.suny.edu/oracle/Windows95%26NT/intelnt95_developer2kserver1.6.zip


Oracle Database Security Patch - Oracle found out about  a security problem on May 7th of 1999.  The problem effects Oracle versions 8.0.3, 8.0.4, 8.0.5 and 8.1.5 (8i) on UNIX ONLY.  If you are using one of these versions and have the Oracle Intelligent Agent running, then you will be interested in getting the fix.
