Dec 04, 2000, 00:00 ET from ParaSoft Corporation

    MONROVIA, Calif., Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- ParaSoft, leading provider of
 software error prevention and error detection solutions, announced today the
 release of Jtest for Linux, a unit testing tool for Java.  Java developers can
 take advantage of this sophisticated tool to facilitate the development of
 high quality software applications on Linux.
     ParaSoft has been providing multi-platform development tools for C/C++,
 Java, and Web applications for over 7 years.  The availability of Jtest for
 Linux comes at an opportune time when Linux is rapidly gaining credibility as
 a development platform.
     A study conducted by Evans Data Corporation in February of 2000 concluded
 that the expectation of deploying Linux applications by Development and IT
 managers in large corporations increased by 75% during the last six months of
 1999 and that the percent of companies running Linux increased by 95%.  These
 findings demonstrate the high acceptance rate of Linux in corporations.
     Jtest's support for Linux was a direct response to demands from the Java
 development community working on Linux.  "The Linux platform is rapidly
 becoming a programming platform of choice for Java developers.  As more
 developers move onto this platform, development and quality assurance tools
 such as Jtest will be needed," said Thomas Chen, ParaSoft Vice President of
 Development Tools.  "Jtest is the first tool of its type available for the
 Linux platform."
