Solutions Enable Customers to Rapidly Build

And Integrate Mission-Critical Web/EJB Applications



Apr 30, 2001, 01:00 ET from Computer Associates International, Inc.

    ISLANDIA, N.Y., April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Computer Associates
 International, Inc. (CA) (NYSE:   CA), today announced the latest additions to
 its powerful solutions for eBusiness information management that enable
 organizations to quickly build and integrate mission-critical Web/EJB
 applications.
     The latest versions of COOL:Gen 6.0 eBusiness Edition, the advanced
 application development tool, and COOL:Joe 2.0 for Enterprise Java, the
 comprehensive J2EE/EJB development environment, enable companies to deliver
 Java applications on an enterprise scale and to transform mainframe and UNIX
 applications to large-scale Web solutions that are leveraged on proven
 technology.
     The two products now provide deployment options for web application
 servers such as WebSphere, WebLogic, or any J2EE-compliant web application
 server.
     For more than a decade, COOL products have provided flexible
 implementation options that give organizations the ability to deliver
 enterprise-class n-tier applications across multiple platforms.
     One of the key drivers of Java adoption is the ability to "write once and
 run anywhere."  Maintaining vendor-independence is critical to achieving this
 goal.  "Application developers, whether corporate or commercial, all want to
 reduce to zero the number of wheels they have to reinvent," said Michael
 Dortch, principal analyst with Robert Frances Group. "With their ability to
 deliver critical J2EE applications running on any leading server, COOL:Gen and
 COOL:Joe can deliver immediate and sustained benefits to enterprises
 developing or deploying Web-enabled applications."
     Both COOL:Gen and COOL:Joe are designed specifically to help organizations
 fully utilize existing development resources to implement new technologies
 like EJB.
     "Tools like COOL:Joe and COOL:Gen are ideal for development organizations
 that are strapped for resources and need technology that can produce real
 productivity gains on a given development project," said Glynis Gore,
 executive vice president of LearningPatterns.com, a fast-growing Java training
 and mentoring firm headquartered in New York City.
     eBusiness enhancements in COOL:Gen 6.0, along with its integrated modeling
 environment and 100 percent automatic code generation, enable development
 teams to take advantage of new technology without requiring additional
 investments in time and money.
     "COOL:Gen brings industrial-strength stability and performance to our Web
 applications," said Rita Moore, director, Electronic Commerce, American
 Freightways, a FedEx company specializing in freight services.  "Our
 programmers were able to deliver Java-based Web solutions within days."
     By providing integration with existing applications, components and data
 through CA's Jasmineii platform, COOL:Joe 2.0 also enables customers to wrap
 their legacy transactions and expose them as Enterprise Java Beans.
     "Through new Jasmineii support in COOL:Joe, J2EE applications can be
 easily integrated with legacy systems," said Sanjay Jairam, chief technical
 architect for 7irene, a firm that offers consulting, implementation,
 integration and brokering of Enterprise Java eCommerce solutions.  "This
 offering, together with the COOL:Joe powerful UML component modeling,
 demonstrates that EJBs can be used for legacy integration solutions and not
 just for new eBusiness development."
     COOL:Gen and COOL:Joe are key components of CA's eBusiness Transformation
 and Integration portfolio, which provides the application and deployment
 services necessary to integrate disparate applications, databases and business
 partner systems.
     "As eBusiness has continued to mature, Java has steadily grown from a
 website development tool to a core technology for enterprise applications,"
 said Wasim Ahmad, vice president, application development solutions, CA.
 "CA's support has grown accordingly, as we continue to bring corporate
 development teams the solutions they need to fully leverage the flexibility
 and power of enterprise Java architectures."
 
      COOL:Gen 6.0 eBusiness Edition also:
     -- Automates integration of legacy COBOL systems.
     -- Optimizes CBD methods to improve manageability, quality, reuse and
        productivity.
     -- Enables integration with multiple web application servers.
     -- Enhances staff productivity and system quality through multi-level
        repository functionality.
 
      COOL:Joe 2.0 for Enterprise Java also:
     -- Reduces the EJB learning curve by building in the EJB specifications
        and providing step-by-step instructions for development.
     -- Supports automatic-deployment to industry-leading application servers
        including WebLogic, WebSphere, iPlanet, JRun and JBoss.
     -- Enables integration with existing databases, components and Java
        applications.
