[MD1] NetBeans Bundles Java-based Object Relational Database

For Immediate Release

NetBeans Bundles Cloudscape with Leading Programming Environment

Oakland, CA and Prague, Czech Republic, September 21, 1998-NetBeans, Inc.
and Cloudscape(TM) Inc. announced today that NetBeans, Inc. will bundle
Cloudscape's embeddable Java-based object relational database with upcoming
releases of the NetBeans IDE. Founded on the principle of Java innovation,
NetBeans is the first company to offer an all-Java IDE based on Swing/JFC.
Cloudscape offers the industry's first embeddable Java database, designed
to be invisibly embedded within applications as a local data manager.

The Cloudscape database will be bundled with NetBeans Developer 2.0,
allowing users of NetBeans Developer 2.0 to create Java applications that
integrate a fully functional, yet lightweight object-relational database
manager. The integrated product is expected to be available in November
1998. NetBeans Developer 2.0, written entirely in the Java(TM) language and
based on Sun's Java Foundation Classes framework, is a full-featured,
object oriented, visual programming environment that allows flexible
development on any platform that supports JDK 1.1.x, including Win95/98/NT,
Apple Mac, Linux, OS/2, Solaris, HP-UX, Irix and others. It combines the
cross-platform compatibility of Java with the ease-of-use of a visual RAD
programming environment, in a package that offers serious software
developers a full set of advanced tools in an intuitive format. Since the
release of NetBeans Developer 2.0 - Beta 1 in late June, over 18,000 new
registered users have downloaded the IDE. Cloudscape ships a 100% Pure Java
object-relational DBMS that provides SQL access to complex data and logic
and features a small footprint. It can be extended with Java class
libraries, and can manage data of any type and logic of any complexity.

"The combination of NetBeans and Cloudscape is a marriage of two 'best of
breed' technologies," said Roman Stanek, founder and CEO of NetBeans, Inc.
"Our bundling redefines the concept of 'Integrated Development
Environment,' and thanks to our Java foundations, the joining will be
seamless. With one visionary technology, Java, we've brought together two
innovative tools."

"We're pleased to work with NetBeans to provide portable Java-based
database management to users of the NetBeans development environment " said
Malcolm Colton, vice president of marketing, Cloudscape Inc. "Together, the
two products free developers from the constraints of traditional
application development, allowing them to deploy database enabled
applications that support even disconnected clients."


NetBeans IDE will ship in two versions - Developer and Enterprise. NetBeans
Developer was created for the single developer working on a single
platform. NetBeans Enterprise was designed as a multi-user, multi-platform
product. Users can fully exploit the object-oriented nature of the IDE,
design distributed applications based on RMI/CORBA, share virtual file
systems, debug remotely, and access source control systems.

NetBeans Developer 2.0 is scheduled for release early in Q4,1998, and like
the beta version, will be available for download from the NetBeans Website
at http://www.netbeans.com. The retail price will be $149, and the IDE will
be free for non-commercial and educational use. Pricing and availability of
NetBeans Enterprise will be announced in late September, 1998.


Cloudscape ships the only 100% Pure Java(TM) SQL database manager designed
to be invisibly embedded within applications as a local data manager. It is
a low-overhead, extensible object relational database that can be embedded
in applications that are deployed over the Internet or on media to the
mobile workforce, customers, and partners. It also has applicability to
server-side Java applications, where it provides a transactional local data
store. The Cloudscape software is currently in use at more than 200 sites

With an extremely small footprint, Cloudscape is agile enough for
deployment over the network. It is designed to meet the needs of
forward-looking companies who see the intranet and extranet as the
cost-effective mechanism for delivering core business applications and
products. Remote and embedded applications are managed from a central
point, dramatically reducing the total cost of ownership of a distributed
