NQL Joins Oracle(R) Partner Program

Announcement Coincides with Release of Network Query Language Version 1.1

With Optimized Oracle Database Interoperability



Apr 18, 2001, 01:00 ET from NQL Inc.

    SANTA ANA, Calif., April 18 /PRNewswire/ -- NQL Inc. (Nasdaq:   NQLI) today
 announced its membership in the Oracle Partner Program (OPP), giving NQL early
 access to Oracle product strategy and direction, design criteria and product
 releases.  The announcement coincides with the release of NQL's Network Query
 Language(TM) software version 1.1, which optimizes database query generation
 for Oracle databases.
     As an OPP member, NQL will receive advance notice of Oracle platform and
 application initiatives, as well as partner-specific integration tools.  OPP
 membership is also expected to provide NQL with business intelligence
 information, access to technical forums and libraries, placement in Oracle's
 solution catalog and participation in Oracle-sponsored events.
     As a result of feedback from Network Query Language technology users, the
 latest version of the software is designed to make it easier for developers to
 add data retrieved from spreadsheets or network sources to Oracle databases.
 Network Query Language technology is NQL's patent-pending core technology, a
 scripting language suited for the development of content management solutions.
     "Database input and output capabilities have been central features of the
 Network Query Language technology since its inception six years ago, and we
 continue to strengthen those capabilities to meet our clients' needs," said
 NQL vice president of marketing Denny Michael.  "We believe this alliance will
 advance the technology's features by enhancing our knowledge of initiatives
 from Oracle, the world's leading provider of solutions for e-business."
     A recent IDC report on application development and deployment trends
 accords Oracle the top spot in this $40.7 billion market, thanks to the
 complete and simple platform offered by Oracle9i Application Server.
