eXcelon Corporation (ticker: EXLN, exchange: NASDAQ) News Release - 4-Jun-2001

PSE Pro for Java From Object Design Drives SpectrumSCM; Embedded, 100 Percent Java PSE Pro Provides SpectrumSCM With Transparent, Distributed Application Data Caching

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 4, 2001--Object Design, a division of eXcelon(TM) Corporation (NASDAQ:EXLN) of Burlington, Mass., and Spectrum Software Inc. of Atlanta, jointly announced today, here at JavaOne, that Object Design's PSE Pro for Java is integrated into the SpectrumSCM (Source Configuration Management) system (also announced today). PSE Pro is the embedded data caching engine for SpectrumSCM which helps software developers manage today's diverse software projects that often include millions of lines of code and hundreds of developers around the world.

"We take a very disciplined approach to software project management at Spectrum," said Sarathi Srinivasan, Spectrum president. "With SpectrumSCM we wanted to create a next-generation, 100 percent Java, platform-portable SCM system that mirrors today's worldwide, distributed approach to software development. PSE Pro gives us an outstanding embedded data cache that answers all of our requirements for persistence, performance and code management in a distributed, pure-Java environment."

As a key embedded storage engine, PSE Pro for Java enables SpectrumSCM to provide a single SCM development environment that controls all versions of the code in real-time in a networked repository. The PSE Pro architecture enables a distributed application to deliver high degrees of performance and scalability. This allows SpectrumSCM to support widely disbursed software developers and give them instant access to the latest information about code status in a closely controlled and monitored development environment.

The PSE Pro for Java engine organizes SpectrumSCM's software asset and value data to facilitate the management of code development, version control, release management, process control management and branching. As a persistent cache, PSE Pro also enables the tracking, auditing and reporting of software development activities, changes and updates.

"Spectrum has developed a distributed, platform independent tool that is redefining the SCM market," commented Kenneth Rugg, Object Design vice president of product development and chief technology officer. "PSE Pro, as an embedded engine, takes care of caching and data management transparently. This lets Spectrum developers concentrate on the value-added aspects of SpectrumSCM which in turn allows their customers to bring better products to market more quickly, efficiently and cost effectively."
