"Oracle on Monday bid to become a supplier of online development software and hosted development techniques by extending its Oracle Technology Network for database developers out to general purpose corporate developers as well."
"Trying to add to the lexicon of the Internet, Oracle spokesmen called the move "the industry's first hosted development environment" and dubbed Oracle the first Developer Service Provider."
"In some respects, Oracle's moves were those of a large commercial company's following the lead of such pioneers in online development as VA Linux Systems' SourceForge, O'Reilly & Associates Publishing and Hewlett-Packard's SourceXchange and CollabNet's www.collab.net. All three provide collaborative development tools and hosted services for open source code projects."
