PointBase Micro Named Best Mobile Database for Second Consecutive Year

PointBase, the leader in Java(TM) data management and synchronization solutions, today announced its PointBase Micro database has won the Java Developer's Journal (JDJ) 2003 Readers' Choice Award for "Best Mobile Database." This award recognizes industry-leading software, solutions, and services in the Java space, and is part of SYS-CON Media's Readers' Choice Awards Program which has become the most-respected industry awards program of its kind.

"2003 turned out to be a watershed year for Java, with enterprising companies taking Java beyond the server to mobile devices, automobile sensors, vending machines, point-of-sale systems, airline seat-backs - all the while knowing that J2SE 1.5 would soon be on its way to speed up deployment. The nomination and award process whereby JDJ's readers have given PointBase Micro a Readers' Choice Award strongly reflect this renewed energy and expansion of Java, and the Award shows PointBase to be one of the industry's absolute leading players in the highly competitive Java space," says Joe Ottinger, Editor-in-Chief, JDJ.

Award recipients were selected through reader-submitted nominations, followed by online voting. Over 15,000 JDJ readers cast their vote to select the best Java products of the year in 25 award categories from over 630 nominations.

"We thank JDJ readers for choosing PointBase Micro as the best mobile database for the second consecutive year. We would also like to congratulate Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL) and iAnywhere Solutions (NYSE: SY) for being named finalists in our category," says Steve Jones, Managing Director, Engineering, PointBase. "This award further validates our established leadership in the mobile database market. As always, we are committed to providing our customers with the most robust Java data management and synchronization solutions available so they can further extend the reach of their enterprise data to increase business and employee performance and drive toward global competitiveness."
