[MD1] Rhapsody's Joy Can Deply to Windows

JOY FOR WINDOWS RELEASED

NEW RAPID SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT TOOL FOR WINDOWS 95 AND NT

VIENNA, Austria, November 7, 1997 -- AAA+ Software today announced the
release of "Joy for Windows". Joy is a tool for very quick, interactive
software development. Programs developed with Joy run on Windows 95/NT,
Apple Rhapsody, and OPENSTEP/Unix, with no porting required.

Joy is based on OPENSTEP, a software widely acknowledged as one of the most
advanced object-oriented development environments, and used by Apple as the
foundation of its new Rhapsody operating system. With Joy, developers can
take advantage of the rich object-oriented frameworks of OPENSTEP without
the need to get familiar with a complex development environment.

Joy boosts developer creativity and productivity by enabling programmers to
quickly and interactively try out new ideas. Professional applications can
thus be developed step by step, through rapid creation of prototypes.

FEATURE HIGHLIGHTS

- integration with OPENSTEP's graphical tools for GUI construction
- object oriented scripting language to implement program logic
- interactive testing of new code without recompiling or even restarting
- all methods of classes in OPENSTEP frameworks available in scripts
- interactive sending of messages to explore OPENSTEP frameworks
- script variables graphically connected to User Interface Objects
- inspect and change any object's variables or methods at runtime
- definition of new classes and methods at runtime
- methods can be implemented for both classes and single instances
- internal, invisible use of byte-code compilation to boost performance
- free mixing of interpreted scripts and compiled C++, C and Objective-C
- scripted methods transparently callable from compiled Objective-C

DEPLOY THE SAME CODE FOR APPLE AND WINDOWS

Joy extends the OPENSTEP suite of development tools, which is available for
Windows 95/NT, Rhapsody and Mach Unix. Regardless where Joy programs are
developed, they can be run without modification on all platforms, and adopt
their look and feel to the local platform.

More than 10,000 registered Apple developers have recently received the
prerelease version of Apple's new operating system Rhapsody with Joy
already bundled. They can now deploy their Joy programs on Windows.

The extensive object-oriented frameworks of OPENSTEP are a key part of the
technology that Apple acquired through the merger with NeXT for it's new
operating system Rhapsody. Many Fortune 500 companies have successfully
used OPENSTEP to build mission critical custom applications and enterprise
solutions. The tremendous benefits of this technology are widely
acknowledged throughout the industry (Byte magazine called it 'the most
respected piece of software on the planet'), yet to master it requires a
major investment of time and effort.

Joy softens the steep learning curve for Windows developers. The Joy
interpreter gives easy and interactive access to the extensive OPENSTEP
class libraries that Apple is selling for Windows 95 and Windows NT as part
of its OPENSTEP Enterprise product.

Joy is based on technology used internally by AAA+ since 1993 to develop
large financial applications. It has thus been thoroughly tested and
validated in day to day operation.

PRICES AND AVAILABILITY

A free, fully-enabled evaluation version of Joy is available from

http://www.aaa-plus.com/joy/download.html

and ftp sites, including

ftp://next-ftp.peak.org/pub/openstep/windows/demos/Joy.1.02.w.I.b.tar.gz

Introductory pricing for regular licenses is $49 for Joy Explorer and $299

and $399, respectively.

Joy Explorer is ideal for users who want to explore the class library and
develop smaller scale applications, Joy Developer is for users interested
in developing large scale applications. Upgrading later from a Joy Explorer
license to Joy Developer is possible.

OPENSTEP Enterprise is available from AAA+ and Apple's Enterprise Software
and Services Division. It is priced at $1499.

Joy, proven technologies originally developed for AAA+ Software's internal
use are available to all OPENSTEP developers. AAA+ Software F&E GmbH.,
