Overview

Rdb became part of Oracle Corporation in 1994. Since then Oracle has made significant enhancements focused on supporting large scale production applications and high performance transaction processing.

Oracle's plan for the future of Oracle Rdb is straightforward. We will continue with demand-driven feature development and product maintenance. In particular, we will maintain a relentless focus on high quality and stability and enhancement of the features which customers have deployed in production environments world- wide.

Oracle supports other Oracle technologies, including Oracle Database and Java. Developers and end users are able to use Oracle tools for application development, ad hoc queries, decision support and internet application deployment.
