[MD1] Joy for Rhapsody DR1 Released

JOY FOR RHAPSODY DR1 RELEASED

- Joy Explorer for Interactive Exploration of Rhapsody
- Joy Developer for Rapid Cross-Platform Application Development

VIENNA, Austria, October 13, 1997. AAA+ Software today announced the
release of Joy for Rhapsody. Joy is an extension to the Rhapsody suite of
development tools. With Joy full-featured applications can be created
without compiling any code.

"Sitting and waiting for the compiler and linker to finish is a waste of
time," said Werner Staringer, founder of AAA+ Software, "interactively
experimenting with the API is much more efficient - and a lot more fun. --
The product name Joy was a logical consequence."

Joy Explorer is aimed at Mac developers who want to explore Rhapsody:
experiment with the API, get familiar with the new Yellow Box, and develop
small scale applications. Upgrading later to Joy Developer is possible.

Joy Developer is aimed at developers who want to interactively develop
sophisticated applications. With Joy they can script and debug, quickly try
out new ideas, prototype solutions, extend the functionality of Yellow Box
classes, explore undocumented features.

Joy supports cross-platform development: "With Joy you can develop
applications on Rhapsody and deploy them on Windows NT or Windows 95
without ever compiling or linking under Windows," affirmed Rainer
Staringer, chief developer of Joy.

Scripted methods can implement any functionality that ordinary methods can.
In addition, creation of new subclasses and redefinition of existing
methods is possible at run-time. Compiled and scripted code can be mixed
freely. Exception- handling is fully transparent. Even running applications
can be modified interactively, reducing debugging time.

Developers design the graphical user interface with Rhapsody's Interface
Builder application. Joy enhancements give scripted methods access to the
application's objects.

PRICES AND AVAILABILITY

A free, fully-enabled evaluation version of Joy Explorer ships on the
Rhapsody DR1 Demo CD that Apple is seeding to Mac developers.

The software is also available later today from

for Joy Developer. This offer includes a free upgrade to at least version
1.1. It is valid until 30 November, 1997. Thereafter prices are set to
increase to $69 and $399, respectively.

OPENSTEP/NT versions of Joy Explorer and Joy Developer are scheduled for
release on October 31, 1997.
