iWay Software and XML Global Highlight eBIX at Auto-Tech 2001 in Detroit

Detroit, MI - August 29th, 2001 - iWay Software, an Information Builders
company that accelerates e-business integration, and XML Global Technologies
(OTC BB: XMLG), an XML middleware company, today announced they will be
conducting a live demonstration of their jointly developed product, eBIX
(e-Business Integration using XML), an XML-based e-business integration
solution for complex enterprise environments at Auto-Tech 2001, being held
in Detroit, August 28-30.

Auto-Tech is sponsored by The Automotive Industry Action Group (AIAG), an
association of approximately 1,600 manufacturers and suppliers in the North
American automotive industry. The AIAG was founded in 1982 by
DaimlerChrysler, Ford Motors, and General Motors and is focused exclusively
on resolving issues critical to the automotive supply chain. Auto-Tech
attracts management-level or senior executive automotive industry
decision-makers responsible for quality, information systems, finance,
purchasing, materials management, production and operations. Auto-Tech 2000
set an attendance record of over 4,000.

The eBIX demonstration will focus on the transformation of an EDI
(Electronic Data Interchange) message to an OAG BOD (Open Applications Group
Business Object Document) XML-based message and will show how proprietary
legacy data formats can be transformed into open XML-based Internet-capable
standards. The OAG, supported by more than 90 organizations focused on B2B
interoperability, has determined a number of XML-based BODs essential for
e-business. By incorporating the eBIX solution, organizations will be able
to adopt the OAG, or any, open standard for e-Business. The iWay/XML Global
solution, eBIX, is less expensive, is available in-house and has a wider
variety of back-end connectors than other available options.

"Auto-Tech 2001 is an important venue for our two companies and the eBIX
Server," said iWay President John Senor. "The automotive industry is
embracing XML as a way of streamlining their supply chain and improving
back-end efficiencies. With the eBIX Server and its ability to open up old
legacy systems and new e-business applications to XML, our automotive
industry clients will be able to create better integrated applications than
ever before."

"To stay ahead in e-business today firms must find transformation
technologies that will cost-effectively breathe life into legacy databases
and add value to a firm's information assets," said Peter Shandro, CEO of
XML Global. "The combined iWay/XML Global solution will give the automotive
industry and its trading partners a one-stop solution to this problem,
allowing them to leverage their information assets through a variety of
Web-based applications, thereby reducing costs and improving supply chain
