Due to a reporting error, the story, "Livermore set to be first witness in HP-Oracle trial," posted to the wire on Thursday, gave the wrong launch date for HP's Integrity server line. It was launched in 2001.

The story has been corrected on the wire. The third paragraph now reads as follows:

HP sued Oracle last June, saying the software giant breached a contract between the companies when it said future versions of its software would not be written for Itanium processors. HP developed Itanium along with Intel to power large enterprise Unix servers and introduced its Integrity server line based on it in 2001. HP is the only major vendor of systems based on the platform.
