[MD1] Symantec's 100% JDBC Compliant dbANYWHERE Server

SYMANTEC ANNOUNCES 100% JDBC COMPLIANT DBANYWHERE SERVER FOR
JAVA APPLICATIONS

-- Middleware provides Internet-browser access to multiple database
engines; connects thin-client Java applets to existing corporate
databases using JDBC --

CUPERTINO, Calif. -- February 24, 1997 -- Symantec Corporation
(Nasdaq:SYMC) announced today the availability of dbANYWHERE Server,
a robust middleware database technology that lets Java(tm) programs
access corporate databases over the Internet using 100% JDBC
compliant API. This exciting middleware solution allows developers
to create data-connected portable distributed applications without
the need to install database drivers on client systems.

dbANYWHERE Server manages transactions between the client and
various back-end database servers, providing swift, simple access
to information in large-scale databases. dbANYWHERE Server is
available with direct database drivers for Oracle, Sybase and
Microsoft SQL Server. With third-party ODBC drivers, dozens of
other databases can be supported through the ODBC Link Driver,
giving customers the freedom of database choice. Users need only
a Java-enabled browser to access the information.

"On the heels of Symantec's immense success with Cafe and Visual
Cafe, we are pleased to be offering a fully JDBC compliant
middleware application server for Intranet/Internet database
connectivity. dbANYWHERE Server adds a critical component that
rounds out our full complement of Java tools," said Mansour Safai,
general manager of Symantec's Internet Tools Division. "The real
power lies in the solutions that customers can now create using
various database engines and software."

"We are thrilled that Symantec has released dbANYWHERE Server.
Fleet Bank evaluated several middleware database products on the
market and found Symantec's product to be the best product for
developing our online commercial banking applications," said Patrick
Nadeau, Sr. Systems Staff Specialist, Fleet Bank. "The dbANYWHERE
product provides true functionality and excellent database
connectivity to Java applications which was a requirement for our
project."

"Symantec has provided a terrific Java development environment
including dbANYWHERE Server to help us develop our Human Resource
Intranet Tools," said David Whitney, President and CEO for
Austin-Hayne Corporation. "Symantec's tools are our top pick for
developing database connected intranet resources."

HOW IT WORKS
dbANYWHERE Server, which runs on Windows 95 and Windows NT, manages
the transactions between the client and back-end database servers.
A client connection is maintained to each database to which the
dbANYWHERE Server is attached. dbANYWHERE Server can access the
supported databases anywhere in the network.

PRICING AND AVAILABILITY
dbANYWHERE Server is expected to be available February 28, 1997
directly from Symantec at (800) 441-7234 for US $1,495.95 for the
base product, which includes one specific driver. Additional drivers
can also be purchased for US $495.95. Visual Cafe Pro users can
crossgrade for US $1,195.95. dbANYWHERE Server ships with fully
licensed drivers for Sybase SQL Anywhere, Microsoft Access and one
additional driver, such as Oracle 7.x and Personal Oracle, Sybase,
Microsoft SQL Server or the ODBC Link Driver. The customer may
select which additional driver they need at the time of purchase.

Sun Microsystems, Inc.'s Java, is the de facto standard platform
for network computing.
