Apr 04, 2001, 01:00 ET from BDI Systems, Inc.

    TORONTO, April 4 /PRNewswire/ -- BDI Systems, Inc. (BDIS), an enterprise
 software company specializing in XML and Java(TM) technologies, today
 announced that it has joined the growing number of tool vendors building
 extensions to Sun Microsystems' Forte(TM) for Java(TM) integrated development
 environment (IDE).  BDIS's DB/XML Vision FX and xPower Transform FX extend the
 Forte for Java product to provide customers with bi-directional data
 transformation between any database and XML documents.  This simplifies the
 exchange of data between disparate systems.
     BDI Systems develops innovative XML-based enterprise software products for
 building web-based reporting, corporate portals, B2B systems, enterprise
 database integration, electronic data interchange (EDI) and data conversion.
 All of the company's products provide APIs in the Java programming language
 for integration with other software products and enterprise systems.  It is
 beneficial for customers of both BDIS and the Forte for Java IDE to use these
 products to rapidly develop their enterprise applications.  BDIS's ready-to-
 use data transformation technologies will enable Forte for Java customers to
 implement scalable and reliable XML-based solutions for their corporate
 portals, B2B systems, database integration, application integration and data
 conversion.  This will significantly improve their quality of services, and
 save time and costs, helping to ensure maximum return on investment.
     "The Forte for Java IDE is an ideal development environment for enterprise
 application developers.  BDIS's products are specially designed for enterprise
 systems, so it is logical for us to join the Forte for Java Extension Partners
 Program," said Dr. Benjamin Zhang, president and founder of BDI Systems.  "By
 making our technologies available for Forte for Java software developers, we
 expect our products will be more widely used by corporations that need to
 implement reliable and scalable XML-based solutions for their enterprise
 systems."
     "XML and J2EE(TM) technology go hand in hand to address the most ambitious
 enterprise applications, so BDI Systems' products are a natural extension to
 the Forte for Java environment," states David Taber, director of portal and
 business development, Forte Tools, Sun Microsystems. "Now developers using the
 Forte for Java IDE will be able to easily leverage BDI Systems' data
 transformation products (including DB/XML Vision, xPower Transform and DB/XML
 Transform) when their applications require a sophisticated XML integration
 solution."
