How does Oracle 8i differ from Oracle 8?

What does the "i" stand for in Oracle8i? I know it is an advanced version of Oracle 8 for Internet-based applications. But I don't know how it actually differs in applications. I know even with Oracle 8 we can connect through the Internet to the Oracle database. Please let me know the difference.

The question I would like to ask is a very simple one, but I haven't gotten the right answer from whom I have asked. What does the "i" stand for in Oracle8i? I know it is an advanced version of Oracle 8 for Internet-based applications. But I don't know how it actually differs in applications. I know even with Oracle 8 we can connect through the Internet to the Oracle database. Please let me know the difference.

It's important to remember that "Oracle" is more than just the database itself. Today, the bulk of Oracle's revenue is from application-related offerings, and each release of Oracle emphasizes different features.

The "i" in Oracle8i and Oracle9i stands for "Internet," and it was given this name to promote the Internet-ready features of Oracle, specifically within the Oracle Application Server (9iAS) products. You can see a detailed list of features by release of Oracle here.
