Oracle Android apps



  • Out of curiosity, I checked to see if Oracle had any apps published in the Android app store, and boy, do they. No less than 162 applications.

    Half of them seem to be different parts of something called "JD Edwards EnterpriseOne", and most of the other half parts of "Oracle E-Business Suite".

    11 of them are titled "CompGalleryTestsomething (Unreleased)". I'm not sure I'm actually supposed to be able to see them. I installed one, and it appears to be a test/demo app for their crappy custom widget toolkitmodern mobile & browser application design system called Oracle Alta UI.

    Fascinating stuff. It's so... disorganized, crappy, and weird. Like stepping into a parallel universe where HTML never existed, so people had to make phone apps for every little thing instead.

    I'd love to see if they have crap on iTunes too, but you actually need to install the program to see it.

    That's their ERP system.

    Trying the iPad apps, here’s what you get:

    That’s the first of about four screens’ worth of apps at the window size I have iTunes set to. First impression is that Oracle really wants you to know who made these apps, though, even without you actually using them yet.

    There some interesting ones at the very end:

    though I’m not 100% convinced they’re actually made by Oracle America, Inc.



  • @Gurth You know what's funny? Thinking about how the mighty Oracle HAS to bend over for Apple like everyone else if they want people to be able to run those apps.

  • Discourse touched me in a no-no place

    @ben_lubar Yes, but Oracle are the ones who think they're wielding the purple cactus.
