AppWorx Announces General Availability of Version 6.1

BELLEVUE, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 12, 2005 -- AppWorx Corporation announced today the release of version 6.1 of their business application automation software. Known as an innovator in the enterprise job scheduling space, the AppWorx software goes far beyond traditional job scheduling to provide true enterprise-wide application process management and automation.

AppWorx enables users to create seamless, automated end-to-end business processes between different applications on different platforms. If/then logic, automated recovery routines, email notifications on job status changes, reduced latency and reduced script maintenance can be achieved "out of the box" with the AppWorx software, while add-on extensions for products such as Oracle e-Business Suite, PeopleSoft Enterprise, SAP and others enhance the power of these products' basic schedulers.

The AppWorx object-oriented approach to development means that you build processes once and reuse them many times with no scripting, and any changes to an object definition cascade to all instances with no maintenance required.

AppWorx 6.1 includes many new features to extend the capabilities of earlier versions of the product, as well as enhancements to existing features. A few of the new features in AppWorx 6.1 include:

--  JDBC Driver Support -- AppWorx can utilize values it extracts from any
    database that offers JDBC drivers to determine dynamic parameters, trigger
    other processes, perform backups and more.
    
--  OS/400 Support -- OS/400 joins the platforms supported by AppWorx 6.1.
    The new OS/400 agent supports the full range of AppWorx functions including
    launching jobs, tracking status, and capturing output.
    
--  Java SAP Interface -- The Java SAP interface is tightly integrated
    with the AppWorx product, and is fully certified by SAP for XBP2.0
    (eXternal Interface for Job Background Processing) including all required
    and optional features. AppWorx Corporation is an SAP Software Solution
    Partner.
    
AppWorx 6.1 extends its role-controlled, object-oriented approach to include Output Scanning, Status Change Notification, and Environment Variable lists. These elements, as well as the new AppWorx Report writer, can utilize dynamic data from the AppWorx repository or from external databases, and since they are AppWorx objects, they can be exported from development to test to production without any changes to the definitions.

"The release of AppWorx 6.1 is a major milestone for the AppWorx product," said Bill Wrenn, AppWorx CEO and chief architect. "6.1 extends our visionary approach to the business process automation market, offering industry-leading features and functionality along with the world-class support infrastructure we've always been proud of."
