AUCKLAND New Zealand - 22 July 2003 - Macromedia (Nasdaq: MACR) announced that it has renewed its Java(tm) 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE(tm)) licensing agreement with Sun Microsystems, Inc. Macromedia has been a licensee for more than three years.

Macromedia JRun has helped spur the adoption of Java technology since its introduction in 1997.
