POWERSOFT TO INTEGRATE METROWERKS COMPILERS WITH
POWERBUILDER ENTERPRISE 5.0 FOR MACINTOSH

Metrowerks to Provide Optimized Compiler Technology for Client/Server
Application Development

CONCORD, Mass., and AUSTIN, Texas-July 29, 1996-Powersoft(R) and
Metrowerks(R), Inc. (NASDAQ: MTWKF, TSE/MSE: MWK) today announced an open
agreement enabling Powersoft to license a special version of Metrowerks'
CodeWarrior(R) C/C++ compilers and linkers.

Under terms of the agreement, the tools will be shipped as shared libraries
in PowerBuilder(R), thereby becoming an integral part of the PowerBuilder
code generation engine for the Macintosh(R) platform. Metrowerks will
supply components for 68K and PowerMac(TM) code generation. This highly
optimized compiler technology will enable PowerBuilder to provide fast
script execution on the Macintosh platform. The integration of CodeWarrior
and PowerBuilder will be demonstrated at MACWORLD(R) Expo in Boston, August
7-10, 1996 at Apple(R)'s Developer Central.

"We're excited to integrate the well-respected CodeWarrior compiler with
PowerBuilder," said David Litwack, president of the Powersoft Business
Group of Sybase(R), Inc. "It gives PowerBuilder the same full set of
powerful capabilities on the Macintosh platform that have won Powersoft its
market-leading position in corporate application development on the Windows
platform."

PowerBuilder developers simply click a check box in the Project Painter to
automatically compile their application into a CodeWarrior executable.
This executable can then be deployed to end-users working on the Macintosh
platform.

"This relationship presents a terrific opportunity for Powersoft's
corporate customer base to access the same state-of-the-art tools used to
build many shrink-wrapped software applications," said Greg Galanos,
president and CEO of Metrowerks.

"We're thrilled with the collaborative efforts of Powersoft and Metrowerks
to bring their combined effort to the Macintosh market," said Heidi Roizen,
Apple's vice president of Developer Relations. "Given that both companies
are leaders in their fields, it makes perfect sense that Powersoft would
engage Metrowerks to create the best compiled code for PowerBuilder
applications. Our mutual customers should really benefit from this."

Tracy Corbo, senior analyst at International Data Corporation, said, "This
agreement not only benefits PowerBuilder for Macintosh users, it helps to
deliver on Powersoft's promise of true cross-platform development. The
combination of these technologies will give PowerBuilder users the benefit
of compiled code from a proven Macintosh product, CodeWarrior. The
integration of CodeWarrior into the PowerBuilder environment makes building
solutions for heterogeneous environments that much easier."

Availability
PowerBuilder Enterprise 5.0 for Macintosh is currently expected to ship in
the second half of 1996.
