    DUBLIN, Calif., April 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sybase, Inc. (NYSE:   SY),
 a leading enterprise infrastructure and integration company, today announced
 the availability of CodeXchange, a new online forum for Sybase Developer
 Network (SDN) members.  CodeXchange enables Sybase developers, customers and
 partners to share code samples, collaborate on open source projects, and
 participate in community discussions, among other activities.
     "The introduction of CodeXchange establishes SDN as a truly interactive
 community," said Marty Beard, senior vice president, Corporate Development and
 Marketing, Sybase, Inc.  "This effort reinforces Sybase's commitment to its
 developer community by offering a wide-range of free, easy-to-use tools and
 services.  By enabling developers to share their expertise and ideas with the
 community at large, we expect CodeXchange to lead to new and innovative
 solutions based on Sybase technology."
     "CodeXchange will help me tap into the collective knowledge of other
 Sybase developers, allowing me to not only code more efficiently but also more
 creatively," said Bruce Armstrong, senior developer, Kforce.com.  "The
 immediate access to code samples and the collaborative insight into specific
 products makes CodeXchange a significant asset to the Sybase developer
 community."
     Based on the CollabNet SourceCast environment, CodeXchange's flexible
 interface provides multiple ways for SDN members to share content.  For
 example, Sybase PowerBuilder(R) 9.0 users can use CodeXchange to share
 PowerBuilder Native Interface (PBNI) files that extend the functionality of
 PowerBuilder.  CodeXchange will also host a Sybase Enterprise Portal portlet
 catalog, enabling users to upload and download portlets to "portal enable"
 applications without time consuming and costly programming.  In addition, the
 venue incorporates a Concurrent Versioning System (CVS) to enable joint
 development on utilities or other tools submitted by the community.  Sybase
 rounds out CodeXchange with additional services such as mailing lists and
 developer news.
