DOAG SIG Spatial infos

The DOAG SIG Spatial event September 9th in Frankfurt was a great success ! Again more than 70 people attended the event. Thanks to Thomas Pahl's excellent organisation and the very interesting topics and speeches (as planned - pls see my previous thread on this).

After 7 years of DOAG SIG SPATIAL organising Thomas Pahl will hand over the event organisation to other spatial enthusiasts -
A GREAT THANK YOU to Thomas for all his voluntary work ! Great !

As promised and as a follow up of my speech pls make a note of the following information:

MAPVIEWER 11g Preview (comprising Oracle Maps) is now production and supported! - whereas you might miss it for download on the Mapviewer download page.
As MAPVIEWER now has become part of the Oracle Weblogic Server (WLS) and the version 11g is not out,
MAPVIEWER's new version is: + Patch#4 (incl. Oracle Maps)
You may download it from Metalink.oracle.com - search for patch 7195504
Mapviewer does run on WLS - I did test it -and the certification process of Mapviewer on WLS is underway.
