Apr 17, 2003, 01:00 ET from IronGrid, Inc.

    AUSTIN, Texas, April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- IronGrid, Inc., a provider of
 lightweight Java development tools, today unveiled IronEye SQL 1.1.  New
 functionality embedded in IronEye SQL includes an Ant task which allows
 performance testing to now be included in the software build process.
     "Performance testing has always been relegated to the end of the software
 development process because it was too difficult to test performance
 midstream," says Clifford Sharples, president and CEO of IronGrid, Inc.  "Now
 with IronEye SQL's new Ant integration, including performance testing in the
 build process is simple."
     "Most development managers agree that performance testing should be done
 more often during the development process, but because of the lack of
 discipline and tools to execute this vision, most development managers can not
 act on this instinct.  Now with IronEye SQL 1.1, performance testing is done
 automatically with each build and has made our lives much easier," states
 Jeremy Bencker, founder and CTO of  "After only 2 days of
 using IronEye SQL 1.1, we cut our app's startup time from 75 seconds to under
 30.  In addition, we were able to pinpoint and cache several redundant, high-
 volume queries, which translated into a decrease of our database's operating
 load by 30%."
     IronEye SQL 1.1 is available for a 30-day free trial download at .  IronEye SQL 1.1 is available through May 31, 2003, at the
 introductory price of $195 for a single user license, and $395 thereafter.
