Macromedia extends JRun Channel Distribution agreement with NEC
Three-year agreement enables approachable, affordable J2EE solution

AUCKLAND New Zealand - 28 October 2003 - Macromedia (Nasdaq: MACR) announced the extension of a strategic distribution agreement with NEC that builds on its successful channel sales and integration of Macromedia JRun 4. The three-year contract will continue NEC's successful track record of getting developers to adopt JRun as a base product for their various web application solutions. Since its introduction, more than 10,000 organisations have chosen JRun because of its ability to help make J2EE technology accessible, approachable and affordable.

"Macromedia believes there is an obvious need for affordable, approachable, no-hassle J2EE solutions like JRun and the success of our partnership with NEC is evidence of that fact. By extending the agreement the two companies have shown their commitment both to the JRun product line and to this important market," said Norm Meyrowitz, president of products, Macromedia. "We remain committed to open standards and the future of Java technology, including support for the J2EE 1.4 specification when it is released." "We're excited that Macromedia JRun is now the basis for our ActiveGlobe application server product line and that it also powers NEC applications including our Cultiiva II e-learning and StarOffice offerings," said Kiyoshi Yoneda, general manager of Internet Software Division, NEC. "We expect that JRun will not only help to lower the total cost for our customers, but will also provide them with the flexibility that they need."

Macromedia recently renewed its Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) licensing agreement with Sun Microsystems, Inc. Macromedia embeds JRun in both the Macromedia ColdFusion MX and Macromedia Breeze product lines and relies on JRun to power the macromedia.com corporate website. Macromedia JRun was also cited as Best Web Services/Enterprise Application Integration Solution at the SIIA Codie Awards.

Macromedia is an elected member of the Java Community Process Executive Committee, which is comprised of 16 companies charged with leading the community of developers and vendors in creating future standards for the Java platform. Macromedia is also active in a number of Java Specification Requests (JSRs) committees that shape the actual descriptions of proposed and final specifications for the Java platform.
