Oracle Application Server 10g Release 2 (10.1.2) is an integrated, standards-based
application platform suite that allows organizations of all sizes to respond better to
changing business requirements.
The Oracle Application Server application platform suite can improve your
organization's ability to predict and respond to market dynamics, enhance productivity,
and simplify your information technology environment, all while allowing you to use your
existing investments to their full potential. Oracle Application Server 10g Release 2 (10.1.2)
achieves these goals through:
Service-Oriented Computing: Oracle Application Server uses a service-oriented computing
architecture to facilitate the development of enterprise applications as business services, which
enables you to build a flexible enterprise application infrastructure.
Grid Computing: The Oracle Application Server architecture coordinates the use of
large numbers of low cost, modular servers and storage to act as one large computer to run your
enterprise applications. This allows you to start small, minimize unused resources, and add
processing or storage capacity as you need it.
