              iWay Software and XML Global Announces 
              New eBIX XML-Based Integration Server 

Partnership Aims to Reduce Integration Costs by Delivering XML 
e-Business Solution 

Summit 2001, Orlando, FL - May 21, 2001 - iWay Software, an Information 
Builders company and market leader in middleware that accelerates 
e-business initiatives through the rapid integration of complex 
back-office systems, and XML Global Technologies (OTC BB: XMLG), an XML 
middleware company, today announced an OEM agreement to develop and 
market a joint e-business integration solution for complex enterprise 
environments. Under the terms of the agreement, XML Global and iWay 
Software will partner to develop and market an entirely XML-based 
integration solution to be branded eBIX (e-Business XML Integration 
eBIX will integrate XML Global's GoXML(tm) Transform, a patented 
transformation engine for dynamic exchange of XML, EDI, and other data 
formats with iWay Software's XML server and complete Enterprise Adapter 
Suite. The complementary technologies will unite in a new XML-based 
server product that will allow Business Analysts and Systems Integrators

to access the extensive information assets contained in more than 120 
applications and data sources on 35 platforms. The combined product 
masks the complexity of back-end systems, allowing users access to all 
of the valuable assets in the enterprise. 
"This product opens up new worlds of e-business communications," said 
iWay President John Senor. "XML includes formats that a wide array of 
organizations can agree on, but XML documents frequently must be 
populated from legacy applications and data which are hard to reach. 
With our ability to open up old legacy systems and new e-business 
applications to XML, our customers will be able to create better 
integrated applications than ever before."  
"One of the greatest challenges in e-business today is finding 
transformation technologies that will cost-effectively breathe life into

legacy databases and add value to a firm's information assets," said 
Gordon Ebanks, Executive Vice President of XML Global. "The combined 
iWay/XML Global solution will give organizations a one-stop solution to 
this problem, allowing them to leverage their information assets in a 
wide variety of Web-based applications." 
The eBIX product will be available immediately through both iWay 
Software and XML Global. The two companies will work together to promote

the eBIX product through joint sales and marketing efforts and will also

jointly support the product through their professional services
