TV Objects delivers essential enterprise solution for migrating visual basic applications to Java.

PRINCETON, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 3, 1997--

Applet Designer Enterprise Provides a Comprehensive Solution for

Converting Visual Basic Applications to 100 Percent

Pure Java Source Code

TV Objects Corp., an innovative provider of Internet-enabling development tools, today announced the general availability of Applet Designer Enterprise edition -- a revolutionary Visual Basic add-in that automatically generates Java-based applications/applets from existing Visual Basic programs.

According to TV Objects Corp., rapid market acceptance of Java as the platform of choice for developing cross-platform applications across the Internet and corporate intranets is forcing Visual Basic development organizations to evaluate and search for solutions to migrate existing Visual Basic applications to Java-enabled environments.

"With Applet Designer Enterprise, the industry has an immediate solution," says Andy Goren, president, TV Objects. "Organizations worldwide can now easily and cost effectively migrate Visual Basic applications to Java and immediately gain enhanced security and universal database access for their VB applications, eliminate the scalability problems inherent with Visual Basic and lower the cost of application deployment and maintenance."

Applet Designer Enterprise is the third and most powerful edition in the unique Applet Designer product suite specifically designed for Visual Basic organizations who have decided to migrate their VB applications to Java.

"The economic benefit of moving to a platform-independent system while simultaneously gaining Internet/intranet accessibility and a multitiered deployment architecture should add up to a substantial argument in favor of the move," says Jeff Kinz, International Data Corp. "TV Objects' Applet Designer Enterprise edition allows VB developers to migrate their applications to the Java platform(s) with relative ease."

Applet Designer Enterprise installs with Sun's JDK 1.1, Asymetrix's JADO (a 100 percent Pure Java implementation of the Active Data Objects interface specification), and OpenLink's client-side Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) drivers and server-side middleware.
