Borland to Ring In New Era of Java™ Innovation at JavaOne

Borland Invites Community to Celebrate Javas Tenth Anniversary and Software Delivery Optimization at JavaOnes Premier Party

SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif. - Jun 21, 2005 : Ten years ago the Java programming language was introduced to the world. This was followed shortly by Borlands introduction of JBuilder® - the first Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for Java programmers. In the years since, the Java platform has attracted over 4 million software developers and now powers over a billion devices and systems around the world. At next weeks 2005 JavaOne conference in San Francisco, Calif., Borland Software Corporation (NASDAQ:: BORL) will showcase just how far Java development has come over the last decade and invites the Java community to celebrate ten years of innovation at Borlands annual JavaOne party.

"Borland is and will remain one of the foremost leaders in Java and Application Lifecycle Management (ALM)," said David Intersimone, chief evangelist and vice president of developer relations at Borland. "This requires an unwavering focus on innovation. We believe initiatives like Eclipse, distributed team collaboration, process optimization and model-driven development will take center stage in the next era of Java development. Were excited to showcase to the Java community our ongoing innovations in these areas."

At the conference itself, Borland will lead three sessions on topics ranging from how to leverage the Eclipse framework, to IDE extensibility, to recent innovations in JBuilder.

    Borland Principal Architect, Christian Kemper, will conduct an Advanced How-To Session on "Whats New with JBuilder?"
