For immediate Release


Somerville, MA 02144; March 4, 2003 – Solidwave Software, Inc. has just
released RADicodeTM 1.1, a new version of its rapid application development
tool for Macintosh programmers.

RADicode leverages REALbasic’s graphical layout environment to provide a
powerful resource editor. Programmers can build and test interfaces quickly
and intuitively in REALbasic, then drag and drop REALbasic project files on
the RADicode icon to generate PowerPlant source code. The code can then be
customized for additional functionality.

The new version features improved code generation and support for Mach-O
PowerPlant targets and REALbasic 4.5 and 5.0. It can generate Mac OS X and
Classic icons and multiple document types from REALbasic, and CodeWarrior
stationaries are provided to facilitate project configuration.

RADicode streamlines the time-consuming process of writing, debugging, and
testing GUI code by automatically generating stable source code, allowing
development teams to collaborate more closely with designers and end users.
“Our customer base claims that RADicode literally shaves months off their
development schedules. They are very excited about it,” states Brad
McKesson, Solidwave Software president and founder. “Customers tell us that
RADicode is as easy to use or easier than the Project Builder/Interface
Builder/Cocoa combo, which can only be used to develop Mac OS X
applications. Now they can develop both Classic and OS X applications to
target a wider market for their products. Most programmers also find the
RADicode/REALbasic/PowerPlant environment to be more productive.”

Founded in 1994, Solidwave Software specializes in supplying products and
services that enhance application development efficiency. RADicode, the
Somerville, Massachusetts company’s flagship product, was launched in July
2002. The firm’s principal, Brad McKesson, holds a B.S. in Electrical
Engineering and Computer Science from MIT and brings more than 12 years of
software development experience. For more information and a free RADicode
