    Press Release
    ---------------------
    CALABASAS, Calif. (September, 2002) -- Software developer Oak Grove Systems Inc, provider of embedded workflow engines, today announced the release of Reactorâ„¢ 5.0.7, a J2EE-based, XML-driven and Web services enabled workflow engine offering universal compatibility with the latest releases of all major development platforms, application servers and databases, including: Windows 2000/XP, Linux and Solaris; JBoss 3.0, BEA WebLogic 7, IBM WebSphere and Oracle 9iAS; and Oracle 9.2, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL and PostgreSQL.

    Reactor 5.0.7 is available as source code on a non-exclusive, royalty-free basis for a one-time, up-front fee. The offering provides developers and systems integrators with the best of both the "build in-house" and "buy from a third party vendor" worlds by giving them an immediate solution, freedom from royalty payments, and ownership of every aspect of their products' underlying code.

    "Platform, server and database neutrality are as critical to our clients as getting to market quickly and managing their development costs," said Charles Ames, CEO of Oak Grove Systems Inc. "And Reactor 5.0.7 is the single-most cost-effective workflow solution on the market for accomplishing these objectives."

    Additionally, the new version offers improved monitoring capabilities. Reactor 5.0.7 provides process monitoring, a new feature that allows users to see the status of a process and current activity being worked on, all of which is captured with a complete audit trail.

    Oak Grove customers have praised Reactor’s superior architecture, robust APIs, and powerful, event-driven process model. The firm's customer base has experienced tremendous growth over the past quarter, with leading software developers choosing Reactor 5 - including Sybase, Plumtree Software, Cardonet and Avasta.

    "After evaluating over 15 different workflow engines, Reactor 5 was our clear choice to embed into Avasta's groundbreaking Application Management Suite," said Scott Hanham, Avasta, CTO & Vice President of engineering. "In fact, we plan on embedding Reactor 5 into future applications as well."
