Vitria Showcases EbXML eBusiness Solution At JavaOne Conference

SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 6, 2000--

New XML standard designed to accelerate development and deployment of

XML-based ebusiness solutions

Vitria Technology Inc. (Nasdaq: VITR), a leading ebusiness platform 
provider, joined industry leaders at the JavaOne Conference in San
Francisco, Calif., to demonstrate Vitria's ebusiness platform support for 
ebXML. Developed under the guidance of leading ebusiness standards
bodies, ebXML is an emerging standard designed to facilitate open trade 
between organizations by enabling XML to be used in a consistent
manner to exchange electronic business data. Vitria's support for ebXML 
will enable customers to rapidly develop and deploy ebXML-based
ebusiness solutions.

Vitria's ebusiness platform, BusinessWare, enables companies to conduct 
business electronically (or "electronically bond") with any online
trading partner using open Internet standards like XML. Electronic bonding 
provides the ability for members to automatically link their business
processes over the Internet, enabling automatic, system-to-system exchange 
of business information and transactions in real time. Vitria's
BusinessWare provided the basis for a successful demonstration of 
ebXML-based electronic bonding between two businesses' back office
systems. The prototype was a joint effort by Vitria and Sun Microsystems, 
presented to experts from around the world who convened to
address progress on Java platform-based global electronic business 
infrastructure technologies, including the ebXML initiative's 18-month
charter for a technical framework that will enable XML (Extensible Markup 
Language) to be utilized in a consistent manner.

This ebXML prototype was also demonstarted successfully at the latest ebXML 
conference in Brussels, Belgium on May 12, 2000. The
prototypes implemented the draft ebXML specification for exchange of 
business documents between trading partners using the everyday
Internet Web and e-mail protocols, HTTP and SMTP. Sample OpenTravel 
Alliance (OTA) business messages were exchanged for the

"Vitria is committed to furthering the development of open industry 
standards for ebusiness," said JoMei Chang, president and CEO of Vitria.
"Initiatives such as ebXML align perfectly with our vision of a fluid, 
seamlessly inter-connected network of exchanges, hubs and trading partners
that enable new business relationships to be formed and changed, on demand, 
in response to constantly shifting market conditions. We call
this next generation of ebusiness `business-to-network' or B2N, and Vitria 
will continue to work on establishing standards that support this

Vitria's demonstration of the ebXML prototype at the JavaOne and the ebXML 
conferences demonstrates the company's ongoing, active role in
the development of ebusiness standards. Vitria played a similar leadership 
role in the development of the RosettaNet ebusiness standard. The
RosettaNet organization was formed in 1998 to develop and deploy global 
standard electronic interfaces to align the processes between supply
chain partners in the IT industry, enabling buyers and sellers of computer 
technology to conduct ebusiness more efficiently. RosettaNet
standards include Partner Interface Processes, or PIPs, which consist of 
system-to-system XML-based dialogs that define how business
processes are conducted between IT manufacturers, software publishers, 
distributors, resellers, and end-users. Vitria's ebusiness platform is
designed to support all current and future standards -- such as ebXML and 
RosettaNet -- for ebusiness.

About ebXML

ebXML (www.ebXML.org) is an International Initiative established by 
UN/CEFACT and OASIS in late 1999 with a mandate to undertake an
18-month program of work to research and identify the technical basis upon 
which the global implementation of XML (Extensible Markup
Language) can be standardized. The goal of ebXML is to facilitate open 
trade between organizations regardless of size by enabling XML to be
used in a consistent manner to exchange electronic business data. UN/CEFACT 
is the United Nations body whose mandate covers worldwide
policy and technical development in the area of trade facilitation and 
electronic business, and OASIS is a non-profit, international consortium
dedicated solely to product-independent data and content interchange.
