I am getting to the point where I can't read your magazine any more. I'm a developer, but all of the Oracle Magazine articles I see lately discuss Java, JDBC, SQLJ, JSP, XML, SOAP (Dial?), UDDI, WSDL, LDAP, Servlet, JSP, etc. In our shop, we use Oracle products named Oracle Developer 6i and Oracle Designer 6i. I never see articles on these products. Doesn't anyone else use them any more? Are we the last ones?
I'm baffled by technology professionals who cheerfully watch the march of technology continue onward without even trying to understand what's going on. How can Mark know that he's providing the best value to the company, and his company to its clients, stuck on Oracle 6? Does Mark know what functionality JDBC could provide? SOAP? LDAP?
And from a magazine perspective, I wonder what does Mark expect to be written about Oracle 6 that hasn't already been written.
