Tango 2000 for Mac OS

Pervasive Software(r) Ships Tango 2000 for Mac OS

Mac Developers Can Now Develop and Deploy E-Business Applications,
Leveraging Advanced Tango 2000 Capabilities That Speed Time to Market

SAN FRANCISCO, CA-January 5, 2000-Pervasive Software Inc. (Nasdaq:PVSW), a
leading provider of software that delivers the freedom to create
applications for everyone, everywhere, today announced at the MACWORLD Expo
the availability of the TangoTM 2000 Web development environment for the
Mac OS operating environment. This new release of the award-winning Tango
2000 software enables Macintosh developers to build and deploy e-business
applications and dynamic Web sites in the latest Mac operating environment,
while leveraging Tango 2000’s advanced, visually-oriented development
capabilities to bring applications to market in Internet time.

Today’s announcement underscores Pervasive’s ongoing commitment to the Ma
operating system as a premier Web development and deployment environment
Customer shipments of Tango 2000 for the Mac OS environment commenced in
late December 1999, and Pervasive plans to ship a version of Tango 2000 for
Mac OS X when Apple releases that forthcoming operating environment.

The Tango 2000 for Mac OS development environment includes many powerful
features and components, including full XML integration and Tango Class
Files (TCFs). By providing developers with full XML integration, XML can be
treated as data types inside the Tango application for easier manipulation
of structured data. TCFs also give developers the freedom to write code
once and then reuse the code as an object in future projects. This
efficient capability enables developers to save significant development

“Working in Tango gives me the opportunity to build and deploy applications
that are easy to configure and flexible enough to deploy across numerous
platforms including the Mac OS operating environment,” said Michael Steele,
University of Oklahoma’s production manager and Webmaster for student
affairs. “One thing you learn about Tango right at the outset is that the
product’s full-featured functionality and easy-to-use Tango Class Files can
be reused after the initial development, dramatically reducing the
time-to-market on future projects.”

Steele is currently designing an intranet portal for the University of
Oklahoma’s official Web site. For more information on the Web site, go to

“Tango 2000 for Mac OS takes Mac-based Web development to the cutting edge
and demonstrates that Pervasive is committed to delivering the most
advanced Web development technology on the latest platforms,” said Greg
Hemstreet, Pervasive general manager for the Tango business unit. “With the
proliferation of Web applications in today’s Internet economy, developers
look for the shortest path from e-business concept to full deployment.
Pervasive’s visually oriented Tango 2000 Web development environment gives
developers that crucial time-to-market edge, enabling them to create and
deploy e-business applications more quickly than with other Web development
