SpatialFX® Users See Benefits From Ongoing Partnership with Oracle
Minneapolis – June 24, 2004 – ObjectFX today announced it has completed all integration requirements in utilizing Oracle® Database10g and Oracle Application Server 10g within its SpatialFX® software platform allowing for great benefits and better productivity for the companies’ joint customers. ObjectFX, which enables the integration of dynamic location-based assets and services within a complete Java framework, has found the results of combining the Oracle 10g platform with its own SpatialFX® Platform to benefit customers in terms of improved ability to view and interact with real-time data and faster decision-making.
Businesses that utilize the new combination of complimentary technologies gain all of the benefits of the SpatialFX platform (easy enterprise application integration, flexibility, multiple deployment options and high performance) combined with the stability, scalability, and reliability of Oracle 10g products. Specific benefits include:
– ObjectFX customers can run all SpatialFX server based components as Enterprise Java Beans directly within Oracle Application Server 10g
– SpatialFX is tightly integrated with the Oracle Spatial option within Oracle Database10g Enterprise Edition thus allowing SpatialFX applications to easily read and display location-based data directly
– ObjectFX customers can also choose to store GIS data created natively by ObjectFX directly within an Oracle Database using JDBC
“The Java application program interface (API) for Oracle 10g Spatial is easy to use and performant. With Oracle Database10g, we saw significant performance improvements over previous releases,” said George Flannery, vice president of technology at ObjectFX. “With ObjectFX integrated on multiple levels related to the Oracle 10g product line, our customers can easily leverage existing Oracle-based data and deploy our SpatialFX based applications with Oracle Application Server 10g.”
“ObjectFX helps Oracle provide our joint customers with location-based services that extend the benefits of the Oracle 10g platform,” said Bronwyn Hastings, vice president, Worldwide Alliances and Channels, Oracle Corp. “As a member of Oracle’s 10g beta test program, ObjectFX is one of the many important application providers helping to drive industry adoption for Oracle’s grid computing platform.”
ObjectFX and Oracle have been partners since 1997 when Oracle highlighted SpatialX(tm) (an early rendition of SpatialFX) in a Location Based Solution demonstration at OracleWorld in New York City. The company was chosen to participate in the beta test of Oracle Database 10g last Fall. ObjectFX is a partner in the Oracle PartnerNetwork.
