Mountain View, CA — 10/20/2003 — AquaFold, Inc today announced the latest version of Aqua Data Studio, its universal
database tool for building, managing and maintaining enterprise relational databases. Aqua Data Studio includes support
for all major database platforms such as Oracle 8i/9i, IBM DB2, Informix Dynamic Server, Sybase Adaptive Server, Sybase
Anywhere, Microsoft SQL Server and the open source databases MySQL and PostgreSQL. Developed with the Java programming
language, Aqua Data Studio supports all major operating systems, including Microsoft Windows, Mac OSX, Solaris and the
Linux operating system.

The new release introduces complete schema extraction and SQL scripting of database objects. With a click of a mouse
the SQL DML (data manipulation language) for tables, views, stored procedures and all database objects may be scripted
to a query window. SQL history capabilities provide complete and easy access to the history of all SQL statements
and scripts executed. A new popup query window provides the flexability to open multiple query windows side by side
to compare scripts and query results.

The Query Analyzer window now also includes support for Oracle’s DBMS_OUTPUT
package and ‘Text History’, which provides quick access to a history of query results. An enhanced Query Analyzer
includes support for openning scripts and saving results in different encoding types, printing of scripts and results,
server side comments, enhanced syntax coloring and more. Version 3.5 also comes with improved memory consumption and
up to 600% increased query performance. Additional database support includes PostgreSQL 7.3 with new schema support
and Trusted Connection support for Microsoft SQL Server through an ODBC interface.

Aqua Data Studio provides an integrated database environment with a single consistent interface to all major relational
databases. This allows the database administrators and developer to tackle multiple tasks simultaneously from one
application. Aqua Data Studio’s sophisticated Query Analyzer allows users to work on database scripts with specific
RDBMS syntax highlighting and auto-completion to develop and test scripts, including detailed client statistical
information and multi-grid results. Its graphical browsing capabilities allow you to understand the structure and
dependencies of the database schema at a click of a mouse and to easily browse and select database scripts. Aqua Data
Studio is similar in functionality to tools from leading vendors such as Oracle, Microsoft, Embarcadero Technologies,
Quest Software and BMC Software.
