operating history. We have added new major blue chip customers, such
as Penn State University, Department of Interior, Option One
Mortgage, Media General, eMusic, Scripps, and Fiducia. Costs are
under control and profitability continues to increase. With these
trends we are on track to deliver a healthy 2005."

"In addition to our solid financial results for the quarter we
successfully launched a range of new products based on the new
standard for Java Content Repositories, which we introduced to the
industry this summer," Moppert continued. "The successful
diversification of our products combined with our technology
leadership in the emerging market of standardized content
repositories proves to be a solid basis for further growth. We are
excited to see the positive impact of our long-term strategy on the
development of our operating results."

Successful launch of JSR 170 compliant content repository and
connector product line

Day Software successfully launched two new product lines, which are
both fully compliant with the Content Repository for Java Technology
API standard (JSR170). The first product line is Day's new Java
Content Repository - CRX. Day's CRX enables customers to manage large
volumes of complex content in a standardized environment, thus
gaining significant efficiency and reducing cost.

The second new product line is a series of repository connectors,
which enable leading legacy repositories to interact with a
standardized Java Content Repository. The first of these innovative
interfaces to be delivered is for EMC Documentum. The Day connector
will make enterprise content stored in Documentum's legacy repository
accessible through the new industry standard, creating greater
interoperability and openness. Other connectors that are in
development include interfaces for FileNet, OpenText LiveLink,
Microsoft SharePoint, IBM Domino.doc, Software AG Tamino, and
Interwoven, among others.

"We are very excited about the initial success of these products. We
have made substantial investments to initiate and lead the JSR 170
specification, the global standard for enterprise content access, and
we have developed our own products in parallel with the standard. We
are now on track to position Day Software as the leader in the
emerging market for Java Content Repositories. We believe that this
expansion of our product portfolio will be an excellent basis for
further growth," explained David Nuescheler, Chief Technology Officer
of Day and Specification Lead for JSR 170 initiative.

JSR 170 is the new standard that defines the interaction between a
business application and the repository where the application stores
content. Day Software initiated this standard three years ago, and is
leading an international industry expert group that develops the JSR
170 specification. The JSR 170 initiative has gained the support of
all major industry players such as IBM, Oracle, Sun and SAP.

BEA Partnership to Deliver JSR 170 Connectivity for BEA WebLogic

In the third quarter of 2005, Day entered into a technology
partnership with BEA, a recognized leader of infrastructure software,
to deliver a JSR 170 compliant connector for BEA WebLogic Portal(TM).
The Day repository connector is designed to enable BEA WebLogic
Portal to interact with enterprise content repositories - such as
Day's Content Repository Extreme (CRX) - that are compliant with the
new JSR 170 industry standard.

"Supporting JSR 170 gives our customers a standard, open interface to
a wide variety of content repositories, helping them to develop
fuller, richer portals," said Bill Roth, vice president, solutions
and product marketing, BEA Systems, Inc. "JSR 170 is emerging as one
of the most important standards governing how content management and
portal applications should work together. By leveraging Day's
engineering expertise around JSR 170, BEA is able to provide its
customers with best of breed capabilities around this exciting new

BEA's decision to integrate Day Software's JSR 170 technology into
their products serves as further support of Day's position as a
leader in the emerging market of Java Content Repositories.
