Business/Technology Editors

BILLERICA, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 7, 2001

SilverStream Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: SSSW), today announced the availability of jBroker(R) Web 1.0, a high-performance, portable Web Services engine and tools designed to build, run and invoke Web Services using Java. jBroker Web provides unmatched performance and deploys to standard J2EE application servers.

jBroker Web provides a standards-compliant, Web Services runtime with a small footprint and flexible architecture. It is a complete XML Remote Procedure Call (RPC) environment for building, running and invoking Web Services using Java. Based on the Java Remote Method Invocation (RMI) programming model, jBroker Web invokes Web Services like any other remote object to speed and simplify the development of Web Services.

"jBroker Web is a key piece of technology for anyone involved in the development of Java-based Web Services," said Rohit Garg, vice president of Java technologies for SilverStream Software. "This new solution truly raises the bar in terms of scalability and interoperability for Web Services and gives developers a free resource for taking Java applications to the next level."

Some of the key features of jBroker Web 1.0 include:

--The ability to generate a Web Service from any Java class including EJBs

--The ability to generate a Java client to access a Web Service from a WSDL file

--A high performance, scalable SOAP 1.1 runtime with 4-6 times the performance of Apache SOAP

--Interoperability with several SOAP implementations including Apache and Microsoft

--The ability to leverage J2EE security features for authentication and access control

--Deployment into standard J2EE application servers including SilverStream, IBM's WebSphere, BEA's WebLogic, Oracle 9iAS, Apache Tomcat and others

jBroker Web is also fully integrated with the SilverStream Application Server (see related announcement issued August 7, 2001) and provides the Web Services engine for the SilverStream eXtend(TM) product line, including the SilverStream eXtend Workbench. SilverStream eXtend is the first complete and integrated services environment that enables organizations to exploit the value of existing systems and deliver business applications to any user on any device or platform.
