Oracle, Sun fixing J2SE bug with E-Business Suite

Oracle is working with Sun to fix a bug that affects how its E-Business Suite runs on Windows Vista

Oracle is working with Sun Microsystems to fix a bug affecting how the E-Business Suite runs on Windows Vista.

The problem is a flaw within Sun's Java 2 Platform Standard Edition (J2SE) platform, wrote Steven Chan, director of applications technology integration, on one of Oracle's blogs.

"This is a critical issue, unfortunately, and we're working with Sun to get this into a future J2SE release," Chan wrote. "As of today, we don't have a firm schedule for the next J2SE release containing this fix."

Because of the problem, Oracle doesn't know when it will certify E-Business versions 11i and 12 for Vista. Oracle is still evaluating the use of J2SE's 5.0 and 6.0 plug-ins, Chan wrote.

The issue may not be pressing for many of Oracle's customers just yet. Chan wrote that Oracle hasn't received much response to an informal survey about their client's plans to upgrade to Windows Vista. Most analysts expect a brisker adoption of Window Vista among businesses next year.

It's unlikely that Oracle will certify Jlnitiator -- Oracle's licensed version of Sun's Java Virtual Machine (JVM) -- with E-Business clients running on Vista, "but that's also under investigation," Chan wrote. Oracle's forms-based modules are certified to run on Jlnitiator, Chan wrote on a previous blog entry.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
