Oracle's latest application server will feature enhancements such as a certificate authority to boost the use of the product for e-business transactions, as well as single sign-on enhancements to boost identity management.

Version 9.0.4 of Oracle's 9i Application Server Release 2 will consolidate traditional integration point solutions such as EAI, business-to-business platforms, and Web services into a software architecture for automation of business processes.

Enhancements are planned for reliability, scalability and manageability. The product will feature service-based application development and expanded portal capabilities.

Additionally, improvements are planned in system management, business process management, business activity monitoring, and business-to-business integration.

Oracle's platform enables development of J2EE applications, Web services, business intelligence applications, and enterprise portals.
