Or to Oracle Databases and the WEB



Apr 23, 2001, 01:00 ET from Zedent Systems, Inc.

    CENTENNIAL, Colo., April 23 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ --
 Zedent Systems, Inc. (www.zedent.com) today announced an agreement with
 Querix, Ltd. of the U.K. to become the company's first dedicated U.S.
 distributor of the Querix software suite of 4GL compilers.  Though Querix has
 had a large number of important U.S.-based customers and OEM resellers, Zedent
 -- a newly designated international Querix enterprise partner -- is the first
 dedicated U.S.-based distributor to offer and support the Querix suite of
 tools, which are designed to foster the cost-effective, easy-to-implement
 migration of applications developed in Informix 4GL to Web- and Windows-based
 applications, or to Oracle databases.  Currently, it is estimated that more
 than one million U.S.-based users are working in applications created in
 Informix 4GL, which features great ease of use but operates in a dated
 character-based mode and is not Internet-compatible.
     Querix, (www.querix.com) is a developer of software tools that allow
 companies with significant investments in applications developed in Informix
 4GL to cost-effectively migrate their legacy applications to Web- and Windows-
 based systems, as well as to Oracle solutions.
     "We're particularly excited to offer Querix software tools in the United
 States, and anticipate a significant revenue stream from this part of our
 business," noted Jim Zapapas, president of Zedent Systems, Inc.  "This
 exciting new technology enables years of knowledge and development efforts
 with Informix 4GL to be leveraged against the Internet and the world's most
 popular databases."
     Zapapas added that there literally are thousands of Informix 4GL
 applications in existence today that are limited to working on character-mode
 terminals and only connect to the Informix RDMBS.  Through the use of Querix
 migration tools, these applications can be made to work within both Microsoft
 Windows and the Internet, with little to no re-programming.
     "We're pleased to announce a strategic agreement with Zedent Systems, as
 it affords Querix a presence in the United States, and continues to round out
 our roster of distributors worldwide," noted Sales & Marketing Director Hubert
 Hoelzl.  "This partnership will add immense value to our product range by not
 just offering U.S.-based customers another sales channel, but by offering
 professional local support and consulting from an organization which has the
 technical knowledge and experience with our complete product range and the
 development of 4GL enterprise applications.  Querix software tools offer an
 affordable solution to the millions of users working in 4GL, who would like a
 pain-free method of migrating their applications to Windows, the Web and/or
 Oracle-based platforms."
 
     A Look at the Querix Software Suite
     The Querix software suite includes the following:
 
     -- Hydra:  A 4GL compiler allowing Informix 4GL applications to run
        against either an Informix or Oracle database, in the traditional
        character mode.
 
     -- Phoenix:  A runtime engine allowing Hydra programs to run in thin
        client server graphical environment on Microsoft Windows 95/98/2000.
 
     -- Chimera:  A Java runtime engine allowing Hydra programs to run entirely
        within a Java-enabled browser (Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape,
        etc.) client.
 
     -- Arachne:  Enables you to take your standard 4GL reports and output it
        in Enhanced HTML format, with custom buttons to navigate through the
        report a page at a time or display any number of pages in one document.
 
     About Querix, Inc.

 development tools.  In 1996, the first Informix 4GL compiler was made
 available as an alternative to the original Informix 4GL compiler.  Querix
 subsequently expanded the connectivity to other DBMS and published the first
 4GL compiler for Oracle in 1997.  The compiler was then the first to be ported
 to Microsoft NT.  In 1999, Querix offered the 4GL users native MS-Windows-
 looking graphical clients without the need to implement source code changes.
 In 2000, Querix introduced its Arachne Html Web Enabler Suite; Chimera Java 2
 client system; and the groundbreaking Phoenix Windows client.  Querix tools
