Press Release:
---------------------------

Philadelphia, PA. - April 25, 2001: Compoze Software, Inc., a leading provider of EJB software components and solutions, today announced product support for the integration of its eCRM EJB software components with Microsoft Exchange Server.

Corporations moving to the J2EE standard are facing the challenge of accessing legacy applications, such as those built on Microsoft Exchange Server, through a Java-based interface. The combination of Compoze components and Intrinsyc's J-Integra, a Java-COM bridge, allowed Compoze to create a powerful collaborative software solution capable of accessing the popular Microsoft Exchange Server via Compoze’s EJB components.

"We were delighted to work with Compoze in developing another great application of our J-Integra technology", said Neil McDonnell, President and COO of Intrinsyc. "By integrating J-Integra with Compoze components, Compoze was able to deliver product support that gives their customers the freedom to work in one environment, yet re-use software written in another environment. This is a powerful proposition, as it ultimately helps Compoze customers improve their efficiency and productivity," added McDonnell.

"Customer response regarding the quality and usability of our components has been extremely positive," says Scott Andress, COO of Compoze Software. "After the release of Harmony 1.0, we received numerous requests for Microsoft Exchange Server integration, thus moving this feature quickly to the top of the project list." "I'm excited when customers request new ways of implementing the components," says Andress. "By supporting access for Microsoft Exchange we are enabling our customers to continue to use our components in any environment needed to accomplish their application requirements."
