Forecross Signs Contracts for 14 Million Lines of Year 2000 IV&V with Canadian Bank.


Forecross(R) Corporation (OTCBB:FRXX), a legacy migration and year 2000 solution company, announced today that it has signed contracts with a large Canadian bank and its U.S. subsidiary, for the independent validation and verification (IV&V), of approximately 14 million lines of application source code.

The code is comprised of IBM MVS COBOL, Tandem and Unisys COBOL, and IBM and Tandem Assembler languages. Under these contracts, Forecross will use its Confirm/2000(TM) product, an automated independent validation and verification (IV&V) software-based service. The projects will be completed in the Forecross Confirm/2000(TM) automated factory in San Francisco.

About Forecross Year 2000 Solutions

Forecross provides automated solutions for all phases of year 2000 projects including assessment, renovation and independent verification and validation (IV&V). Numerous languages are supported by Complete/2000(R) and Confirm/2000(TM) including COBOL, CA-ADS, APS, C, C++, CSP, CA-Easytrieve, CA-IDEAL, IMSADF II, PL/I, PowerBuilder, CA-TELON, CA-MetaCOBOL. COBOL solutions are available for AS/400, DEC/VAX, HP, MVS, Tandem, Unisys, VM, VSE and Wang.

Forecross Confirm/2000(TM) for IV&V accurately identifies source code that is compliant, non-compliant or that needs to be investigated. Because it uses a different approach from the date-seed-driven renovation and IV&V products and services on the market, Confirm/2000(TM) provides a truly independent validation of the accuracy of previous renovations.
