Original Press Release:

ILOG JViews Accelerates Creation of Rich Internet and Desktop Applications Using Ajax, Eclipse

New Eclipse Module and Performance Improvements Address Most Demanding Applications

PARIS and SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 11 -- ILOG® (Nasdaq: ILOG; Euronext: ILO, ISIN: FR0004042364) today announced ILOG JVIEWS® 8.1, the latest version of ILOG's award-winning Java-based visualization suite that enhances the creation of Rich Internet Applications (RIA) and desktop applications for supervision and monitoring. ILOG JViews 8.1 introduces a new presentation layer for the Eclipse platform and dramatic performance improvements for both desktop and Web applications to enhance the user experience of the most demanding applications.

The new JViews 8.1 product suite includes JViews Diagrammer®, JViews Charts®, JViews Gantt®, JViews Maps®, JViews Maps for Defense®, and JViews TGO®. JViews targets high-end visualization applications, such as large-scale industrial monitoring systems or Web-enabled road traffic information systems. The latest release has introduced new techniques, to satisfy the user experience requirements of the most demanding applications, in particular the combination of richer graphics and faster response time.

Key features of the ILOG JViews 8.1 include ILOG JViews Graph Layout for the Eclipse Graphical Editing Framework (GEF) -- a new Eclipse-enabled Graph Layout feature that automates the placement of interconnected entities, such as network topologies, business process diagrams, electrical circuits and other types of entity-relation schemas. Developers can now easily choose to use traditional Java or pure Eclipse software components to implement their advanced graphing needs.

The new JViews release brings further performance improvements for RIA and desktop applications. Other key features include:

o The new JViews release improves the user experience for RIA through
faster page refreshes and Web response times. These significant
enhancements include improvements to both thin client and applet
deployment. JavaServer Faces (JSF) Ajax Web clients now leverage more
compact JavaScript code that results in faster application startup
times and that can reduce network traffic by up to 75 percent. Applet
deployment is more efficient than ever with up to 50 percent fewer
server roundtrips.

o In order to comply with the real-time requirements of the
most-demanding supervision applications, JViews 8.1 brings significant
performance enhancements to both loading time and page refreshes for
complex dashboards, diagrams and maps:
o screen loading time for dashboards, maps and diagrams are up to five
times faster compared with the previous release due to new, more
compact binary format in JViews Diagrammer and to vector map
generalization support in JViews Maps,
o screen updates and animations are up to 10 times faster due to
optimizations in the Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) engine, in selection
and scrolling mechanisms and in the underlying graphics engine.

o The new release also includes a new PERT (Program Evaluation Review
Technique) view for JViews Gantt, leveraging JViews Diagrammer to
display and analyze tasks involved in projects.

Available immediately, ILOG JViews 8.1 provides tools for the design of Rich Internet Applications and user displays with strong support of Ajax and direct editing of diagrams, charts and maps in a Web browser. ILOG JViews was the first graphics suite to adopt the Ajax standard in 2006. For more information on the new products, please visit
