DeltaPoint, Inc. WebTools ships with Borland's Visual dBASE Professional with Intranet tools; DeltaPoint's Internet technology included in Borland's Xbase Tools for publishing and searching databases on the World Wide Web.

MONTEREY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 23, 1996--DeltaPoint, Inc. (NASDAQ: DTPT) today announced the inclusion of DeltaPoint WebTools(TM) in Borland International Inc.'s new Internet-enabled version of its Visual dBASE database, Visual dBASE Professional with Intranet Tools. The Visual dBASE Intranet Tools are a set of utilities designed to allow Visual dBASE and other Xbase developers to easily create interactive database applications for the World Wide Web and corporate Intranets.

"Borland selected DeltaPoint WebTools for Visual dBASE Intranet Tools because it is based on a database publishing metaphor," said Ross Dembecki, Borland's Group Product Manager for Desktop and LAN development tools. "Together, our tools allow desktop database developers to naturally extend the reach of their existing and future applications to the vast number of users being empowered by Web browsers."

"With DeltaPoint providing WebTools, which is based on DeltaPoint QuickSite's HTML page publishing engine technology, Borland has designed an interactive solution for creating enhanced World Wide Web pages," said Song Huang, VP of Marketing/Internet Products for DeltaPoint, Inc. "We believe this validates the premise that Web sites and Web applications of the future will be based on a database architecture. WebTools, and its parent technology QuickSite, is well positioned to take developers into the next generation of interactive Web sites."

Visual dBASE Intranet Tools

The Visual dBASE Intranet Tools are available along with Visual dBASE 5.5 and the Visual dBASE Compiler in Borland's new Visual dBASE Professional version. For those developers that currently own Visual dBASE and its Compiler, the Intranet Tools are available separately from Borland. The Visual dBASE Intranet Tools are designed to provide an easy way for Xbase developers to publish desktop and server database tables on the Web, so that they can be accessed and queried by users on any platform with a standard Web browser. The Visual dBASE Intranet Tools consist of three components for easy and powerful Web database development: the Table Publish WebExpert, the Table Search WebExpert, and DeltaPoint Inc.'s WebTools for Visual dBASE.

DeltaPoint, Inc.'s WebTools

DeltaPoint WebTools for Visual dBASE is a class library and collection of development utilities that provide a Common Gateway Interface ("CGI") and Web development tools for creating database-driven Web sites. With DeltaPoint WebTools, users can design World Wide Web-enabled database applications using Visual dBASE and the Visual dBASE Compiler. Licensed by Borland from DeltaPoint, Inc., these tools are written completely in Visual dBASE, and include a powerful HTML-publishing engine, class library source code, a reference guide to classes, methods, functions, and many documented examples.
