User Interface Server™ and SDK V2.2 Meet SunTone Program's Availability, Reliability and Performance Standards

NEW YORK, June 13, 2002 - Droplets, a leading provider of software infrastructure solutions for deploying highly interactive, real-time Internet applications, today announced that their User Interface Server™ and Software Development Kit (SDK) V2.2 have achieved certification under the SunTone[sm] Program for Applications. SunTone Certification represents a quality "seal of approval", and confirms that Droplets' User Interface Server™ and SDK V2.2 meets the availability, reliability and performance industry-based standards necessary for high-quality deployment of services over the Internet.

"Droplets is putting intelligence just inside the edge of the network to enable sophisticated GUIs for server-side applications," said Hal Stern, chief technology officer, iPlanet E-Commerce Solutions, at Sun Microsystems, Inc. "By achieving SunTone certification for the Droplets User Interface Server and SDK V2.2, Droplets has passed a rigorous review process to meet high standards for excellence in infrastructure, availability and uptime."

The Droplets platform enables superior user interface functionality and simplified deployment by enabling Java™ technology or C++ based applications to be administered from a central server, over thin bandwidth connections, and accessed from a desktop icon, wireless device or portal Web top. Droplets-based applications feature the usability and productivity advantages of local software, while maintaining all application code centrally, and using 1/10th the bandwidth of HTML-based applications.

"Receiving SunTone certification underscores our commitment to provide high quality solutions to our customers," said Philip Brittan, president and CEO of Droplets, Inc. "We have invested considerable resources in the security, availability and scalability of our application platform and are proud to be a member of the SunTone Certified community."
