    ----------------
    SANTA ANA, Calif., Dec 11, 2001 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Starbase Corp. (Nasdaq:SBAS), the leading provider of end-to-end collaborative products for both the development and management of content and code for enterprise and e-business applications, today announced the availability of StarTeam Elite, the only configuration and change management system that drives the development process from requirements, tasks and change requests to improve both the productivity and quality of enterprise applications.

    StarTeam Elite is a high-end solution designed to meet specific business needs through customizations by Starbase Professional Services.

    "StarTeam Elite's customization capability and enforceable workflow will provide our team with increased control over the entire development process," stated Steve Morling, project leader, principal engineer for AG Communication Systems.

    "This is crucial in an enterprise like ours with several hundred development team members. StarTeam Elite delivers a truly integrated approach to development enabling the management of all our digital artifacts, including requirements."

    StarTeam Elite's new functionality coupled with advanced customization capability extends the StarTeam Enterprise product to fully integrate requirements management and workflow into the development process.

    The integration of these functions enables the "publishing" of requirements from Starbase's requirements management product, CaliberRM, into StarTeam and the implementation of an enforceable requirement-driven development process. This managed process unifies and speeds the development life cycle, significantly improving the quality of applications.

    "As application development projects increase in size and scope, the need for IT management to establish best practices and control the development process also increases," stated Lydia Patterson, vice president of marketing for Starbase. "The ability to implement and enforce a clear and well-understood process greatly improves development efficiency."

    Patterson continued: "Including our Professional Services Group's customization capabilities with StarTeam Elite enables the delivery of a highly personalized development solution for our customer, which supports the most sophisticated needs of the development process. Based on Java and XML technologies, StarTeam Elite supports all application development platforms with a common user interface and workflow model."

    What do people think of StarTeam compared to CVS?
    Are their enough items that make it worth the jump from
    the free CVS to StarTeam? I think it is great to have the tie-ins with bug tracking, requirements tracking (tie with Caliber) etc etc

    Having used CVS, Perforce, ClearCase, Visual Source Safe and now StarTeam I must say that StarTeam is the sweetest of all these products to use. We switched TheServerSide.com to use StarTeam from CVS and we are very happy with it.

    To be fair you can't compare CVS with StarTeam since StarTeam offers so much more than source control. The Bug tracking and project management features of StarTeam are very useful, and having them built into the client makes it much easier to get fellow team members to use them.

    I'm sorry for moving this off-topic, but how does StarTeam compare with MKS Source Integrity? I know MKS is expensive, but I like the defect tracking capabilities. Just wondering you you (or anybody else) has compared the two.

    Thanks,
    David

    We've used StarTeam the last two years and we're very happy with it. We've experienced some problems with performance though in some situations, but it seems to be some problem with our repository so it's not necessarily something that everyone will experience. Also, Starbase seems to have had some problems with their development team or something because updates have been quite infrequent. It's seems they've sorted those problems out now though.
