Both Scheduler FE and Resource FE Plus have been developed using Java and connect to the Oracle database by a JDBC enabled link. This results in software that is platform independent, it will run on the Unix operating system in the same manner as it runs on Windows.
With regard to Scheduler FE, there are four versions, one version each for Oracle 10g Release 1, Oracle 10g Release 2, Oracle 11g Release 1 and one for Oracle 11g Release 2. Each version is upward compatible, that is it will run on later versions. It will not though, display features that are new to that version. For that you need to download the correct database version.
Scheduler FE Grid is free, it has an Apache 2 license meaning it comes under the freeware catagory. Not only is it free to test but also to run on a production environment. There is no cost involved in using the software. Additionally I would like to state that there is no hidden functionality within the software. It does not perform actions unrelated to the Oracle Scheduler or Oracle Resource Manager functionality.
This does not change the ownership of the software which remains with Blueshire Services Ltd but with the Apache 2 license the code can be modified.
