Gorilla eXecution Engine™ Achieves Ready for IBM Rational Software Validation

UML-Based Application Simulation Tool Meets IBM Specifications

BROOMFIELD, CO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 11, 2006 -- Gorilla Logic announces its unified modeling language (UML)-based application simulation tool, Gorilla eXecution Engine (GXE) version 1.2, is now validated as Ready for IBM Rational software. This designation indicates that GXE 1.2 meets IBM's requirements for integration with the IBM Rational Software Development Platform -- IBM Rational Systems Developer, IBM Rational Software Architect, IBM Rational Software Modeler, and IBM Rational Rose.

The GXE 1.2 expands the capability of the market-leading IBM Rational Software Development Platform with an Eclipse plug-in for RSM and RSA modelers, allowing business analysts and software architects to create and run simulations with a simple keystroke. The GXE 1.2 also meets the Ready for IBM Rational Plug-in Central Best Practices requirements.

"With GXE 1.2, IBM Rational users can confirm application requirements by actually test driving the proposed solution, rather than reviewing a 500-pound requirements document," said Stu Stern, CEO of Gorilla Logic, Inc. "We are proud that Gorilla Logic has joined the group of partners providing extensions to the IBM Rational software development platform."

Features of GXE 1.2

The GXE 1.2 creates fully functional application simulations from industry-standard UML models, enabling end users and business executives to provide interactive feedback on system requirements and feature functionality before developers write code. Before the GXE 1.2, IT teams had to turn to proprietary, non-UML tools to create one-off application mockups, or simply went directly to code without the benefit of a simulation. By creating fully functional application simulations, enterprises can develop software applications faster and improve quality by reducing requirements creep, change orders and re-work.

A free thirty-day trial of GXE 1.2 is available at
