Press Release:
YesSoftware Launches Revolutionary Code Generation Tool for Rapid Web

SAN FRANCISCO, CA - January 12, 2001-YesSoftware today announced the launch
of the pre-release version of CodeCharge, a powerful code generation
application that breaks new ground in easing database publishing on the
web. The program significantly reduces costs and greatly accelerates the
development of data-driven Web applications, from simple dynamic web forms
to Intranets, portals and eCommerce sites.

The software generates high quality code in many server programming
languages such as Microsoft Active Server Pages (ASP), Allaire ColdFusion
Markup Language (CFML), Sun Microsystems Java Server Pages (JSP), Personal
Home Page/Hypertext Preprocessor (PHP), Practical Extraction and Report
Language (Perl), and soon ASP.NET. Generated code runs on Windows and
UNIX/Linux platforms and may be freely distributed by commercial
application developers as well as Open Source enthusiasts.

While helping experienced developers in reducing development cycles,
CodeCharge also offers an easy way to start, learn, and support programming
for the web. In a matter of hours, nonprogrammers can create
database-enabled web sites; beginners can study and modify CodeCharge's
robust code; and experienced developers can eliminate repetitious,
monotonous parts of their work while still retaining full control over all

The flexibility built into CodeCharge lets developers use any database to
create dynamic, data-driven web sites in just about any programming
language.  Included are many samples, such as Online Book Store,
Classifieds, Employee Directory, Task Management System, Yellow Pages,
etc. These applications can be generated in any supported language with
just one click.

For visual site design, CodeCharge supports all HTML editors, thus allowing
users of Microsoft FrontPage, Allaire HomeSite, Adobe GoLive, SoftQuad
HoTMetaL Pro and other web design applications to easily modify the look
and feel of database driven web sites generated with CodeCharge. Other
major features include WAP support, separation of code from content, page
layout preview, site preview and site diagram view.

Available now, the pre-release version of CodeCharge addresses the needs of
web developers who use products from Allaire (NASDAQ: ALLR), IBM (NASDAQ:
IBM), Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT), Sun Microsystems (NASDAQ: SUNW), Red Hat
(NASDAQ: RHAT), Macromedia (NASDAQ: MACR), Adobe (NASDAQ: ADBE),
ActiveState and SoftQuad among others.

YesSoftware is a provider of software development solutions and services
that allow companies to accelerate the development and deployment of their
products. For more information on CodeCharge, please visit http://www.CodeCharge.com.
