If you currently own Discover via an iAS EE license, you can continue to use 
Discoverer 11g, which runs under WebLogic as long as you are current on support.

All editions of the products Oracle Internet Application Server and 
Oracle Forms and Reports Server include rights to WebLogic Server Basic.
 WebLogic Server Basic is only for running components provided within 
these products such as Forms, Reports, Discoverer and Portal. 

If you never owned Discoverer, you can acquire it via Oracle Business 
Intelligence STANDARD edition.

WebLogic Suite also includes continued use of Oracle Discoverer. (and other iAS 
products) and is the recommended license migration path for anyone moving from 
iAS to WebLogic.

What is the over/under on Discoverer or Cobol disappearing first?  Of course 
Niall is spot on in what he has written. The pricing model for OBIEE has a lot 
of my customers worried and looking at alternatives, and I really haven’t 
figured out Fusion MiddleWare deployment costs yet.  mwf  From:

customers on it - but we will migrate it to FMW and there may or may not be 
different ways of licensing it in the future" On Tue, Mar 29, 2011 at 3:21 PM,

I rumor going around is that Discoverer is going away. 

I can see IAS being replaced/upgraded and renamed but not Discoverer. 

Has anybody heard about where Discoverer's life cycle is heading? 

Thank you much,
