HP calls Oracle’s secrecy claim a ‘cheap shot’

Hewlett-Packard and Oracle continue to throw mud in a dispute over the decision to Oracle, Itanium ugly to be deposited in one of the other side of the cascades of publicity and secrecy unjustified accused.

On Thursday, HP claims retaliation against Oracle last month that HP tried to information that could weaken his position to hide in the fall.

“Oracle says in its opposition to the transition to a complaint with the seal of the file HP is trying to hide the truth on the basis of their claims against Oracle. Nothing could be further from the truth,” wrote the lawyer for HP. “Not one word of complaint to HP is not willing – happy to publish -.”

HP uses Intel Itanium servers running the operating system HP-UX. HP Oracle is a violation of a contractual agreement when he left to develop new software to switch to Itanium. Oracle says it is a legal agreement.

HP presented part of his complaint under seal, filed, including the terms of an agreement on dispute settlement in the lawsuit against his former HP CEO, Mark Hurd, when he took a job at Oracle. The agreement includes a contractual commitment between companies of any ongoing support of products, according to HP.

Oracle has downplayed the importance of the pact, calling it nothing more than “corporate hug” to show that the companies had ended their feud. Oracle said HP is trying to keep the secret settlement because it would be releasing harmful to their cause.

However, Oracle has decided to “land a low blow” against HP, continuous display of “inappropriate perforation of the recording with the. Deceptive and inflammatory that the benefits”

HP confirms his belief that Oracle is committed to continuing to work with HP.

“Oracle says that the provision is simply a” further demands on the Oracle database and other software at the port for HP platforms, “the general assertion of a non-contractual” association “” HP can not compete seriously, the presentation said. “But that’s exactly what Oracle attorney general said the arrangement meant specifically HP during the negotiations on the agreement. “

While HP is ready to stay, an unedited version of his public denunciations have an agreement on dispute settlement next to the section on contractual obligations, the States of the Presentation of HP sealed.

Oracle has criticized the position of HP, regardless of the specific allegations in his presentation.

“Oracle is not interested in keeping the general public,” Oracle said in a brief statement. “The settlement of complaints and should be released immediately.”
