Subject: Announcing Application Builder Collection Version 1.1

For Immediate Release

Beaverton, OR (January 30, 2002) – Jiiva, Inc., announces Application
Builder Collection Version 1.1. Application Builder Collection (ABC) is
the first professional-grade set of reusable Cocoa frameworks for
building solid Mac OS X applications. Version 1.1 adds new functionality
that further expands the use of Interface Builder and includes a variety
of customer feedback enhancements. ABC Version 1.1 is a free upgrade for
existing customers and is available for purchase for new customers at
Jiiva’s on-line store.

“We’ve gotten some great feedback from users of Version 1.0 and
springing off that, we’ve put together an even stronger Version 1.1,”
says Jiiva’s President Mark Ericksen. “With a super price of $199.99 for
early adopters, developers are really seeing the value in ABC.”

Application Builder Collection is a set of user interface widgets,
reusable objects, and development applications designed to reduce the
time required to build feature-rich Cocoa applications. By reducing the
time needed to put together the basic elements of software, ABC allows a
software development company to focus on the features and design that
set its application apart from the competition.

ABC is an extension to the Cocoa development tools and kits provided by
Apple Computer. The Cocoa development environment has a rich set of
objects for writing powerful applications and ABC builds on this solid
foundation by leveraging existing classes, naming conventions, and
design patterns. ABC is designed to take full advantage of Mac OS X,
including the smooth look of the Aqua interface. ABC is easy for the
novice or experienced Cocoa programmer to understand and use.

ABC contains several formatters to control the specific presentation and
input of text, including international currencies and telephone numbers,
as well as using expressions to format text in complex ways. ABC
contains several user interface widgets, such as calendar popups and
twiddle views, which can be used by “dragging and dropping,” all without
writing a single line of code.

Pricing for ABC is $199.99 for single machine development license. No
deployment license or royalties are required. Quantity discounts are
available through our on-line store at Check the Jiiva
