Applications With Only a Small Java Applet Downloaded to the Desktop



    CAMPBELL, Calif., April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- GraphOn Corp. (www.graphon.com)
 a leading provider of thin, server-based connectivity software, announced
 today that its GO-Joe product plays a key role in Sun Microsystems' newest
 portal computing solution, i-Planet (formerly named Sun.Net), by providing
 fast access to UNIX applications over the Internet.  i-Planet is a software
 solution that enables enterprise portal access from any remote device with a
 Java-enabled Internet browser with full security.  GO-Joe allows Java-enabled
 devices or browsers to access business-critical UNIX and Linux applications
 from any location, over the Internet or dial-up connection.
     i-Planet's authenticated computing gateway will allow authorized employees
 and business partners behind firewalls to access server-based applications,
 e-mail and other critical services with full security. GraphOn's thin
 server-based technology will play a key role by empowering people to rent or
 otherwise access mission-critical applications online, using only a
 Java-enabled browser and GraphOn's thin software. "i-Planet is just one of the
 many ways enterprises can utilize our products, GO-Joe, GO-Global(TM),
 GO-Between(TM) and jBridge(TM) to distribute and access business-critical
 applications, without software rewrites or modifications," said Walt Keller,
 GraphOn president and CEO.
     Sun Microsystems' Kevin Kalajan, Senior Staff Engineer and CTO i-Planet
 software, said, "GraphOn's GO-Joe technology is key in providing secure
 connections to UNIX enterprise applications from Java Technology-enabled
 devices."
     "GraphOn is delighted to partner with Sun to incorporate our GO-Joe
 software and RapidX protocol with i-Planet to help expand today's extranet and
 make the virtual enterprise a reality. i-Planet provides the total security
 solution for GO-Joe to deploy virtually any application to any Java-enabled
 desktop or any Internet-enabled device," said Keller.
