Oracle unveils open source database tool

Antony Savvas

Oracle and PHP tools maker Zend Technologies are working on an open source development tool for Oracle databases.

Due in the third quarter, the free solution, called Zend Core for Oracle, will provide integration between the Oracle database and Zend's PHP (PHP Hypertext Preprocessor) environment. 

PHP is a scripting language that helps accelerate development on applications like databases. Zend had previously signed a similar agreement with IBM to support development in its database products. 

The latest offering will be available from the Oracle Technology Network and Zend will sell related support services. 

PHP competes with Java and Microsoft .net as a development solution.
