RadViews WebLOAD, WebFT and WebLOAD Analyzer Offer The Linux Community Powerful, Easy-to-Use Award-Winning Technology.

Burlington, MA, April 7, 2004 -- RadView Software Ltd. (Nasdaq: RDVW), a leading provider of solutions for verifying the performance, scalability and integrity of business-critical Web applications, adds Linux support to its testing tools. From the award-winning WebLOAD to the functional testing tool WebFT to WebLOAD Analyzer, the companys new root cause analysis tool, RadViews software extends the same powerful, easy to use tools to the Linux community that are now available to Java-based and other Web application developers.

RadViews products allow developers to work in a pure Linux or a multi-platform environment. WebFTs test scripts can be executed by WebLOAD's Linux-based load generator software providing pure Linux traffic generation. Using WebLOAD Analyzers Linux data adapters, users can analyze the performance of their applications and gather Linux specific data while an application is being exercised by WebLOADs load generating software. WebLOAD Analyzer is also able to monitor all tiers of an application whether its a single platform environment or a complex multi-platform application environment.

Today RadViews products are used to test large, dynamic Web sites such as GiftCertificates.comTM and Sees Candies (sees.com) as well as products built for Web deployment or internal use, said Omri Reuter, VP of Product Development, RadView Software. With Linux growth on the upswing in Web development, RadViews automated testing tools provide Linux developers with out-of-the-box, feature-rich, robust technology at an excellent value.

About RadView Products

WebLOAD is a load testing solution that executes server and client-side browser activity in a scalable and portable manner. This capability along with a visual script development environment, support for testing Web Services, automated monitoring notification and performance tools, provides developers and test engineers with comprehensive, cost-effective technology for testing complex Web applications.

WebFT is a testing solution that efficiently verifies the functional accuracy of Web applications and ensures applications perform as expected. WebFT reduces application development costs by early detection and correction of application development problems.

WebLOAD and WebFT speed the implementation time of Web applications through the use of an open standards scripting language, which reduces staff training time and facilitates communication between test and development teams. WebFT and WebLOAD share test scripts further reducing the time necessary for scripting, which speeds the testing and debugging of applications.

WebLOAD Analyzer is a software solution for diagnosing and pinpointing performance problems prior to an applications rollout. The tools unique combination of analyzing internal and external application data provides users with the ability to diagnose problems and determine the root cause of performance issues typically not found until the application is in production. In addition, the ability to specifically pinpoint issues down to the method level promotes rapid resolution of performance issues and encourages the systems test and development teams to work together more effectively. WebLOAD Analyzer captures data on the internal specifics of the Web application, while RadViews load generation engine (WebLOAD) floods the application with real world, end-user transactions.

WebFT, WebLOAD and WebLOAD Analyzer are available today. WebLOAD Analyzers support for Linux includes RedHAT 7.2, 7.3, 8.0, 9.0 and Advanced Server 2.1 and 3.0.

In addition, WebLOAD Analyzer supports Apache, IIS and J2EE-based application servers (BEA WebLogic, IBM WebSphere, Apache Tomcat, and JBoss), DB2, Oracle, SQL database servers as well as the Sun Solaris, IBM, AIX, and Microsoft Windows operating systems.
