PART II

A. Licensee's rights, representations and obligations.

1. Informix hereby grants and Licensee hereby accepts the nonexclusive,
nontransferable, royalty-bearing right and license within the Territory and in
accordance with the User Documentation and this Agreement:

(a) to internally use the Products on the Computer Systems to develop its End
Item; (b) to distribute the Products on the Computer Systems with, and for use
by End Users Solely as a component in, the End Item and not as a component in or
for use with any other end item, solution, or application; and

(b) to manufacture the object code of the Products as specified in Part I.

2. (a) Licensee shall never distribute Products on a stand alone basis. (b) The
object code of Products shall be distributed in unaltered form.

3. All fees charged by Licensee shall be in Licensee's sole discretion.

4. Licensee may make 1 back-up copy of Products used internally to develop End
Items.

5. No Products shall be distributed, either directly or indirectly, to an End
User or to a Reseller, prior to Licensee ensuring that both the End User and the
Reseller (at each tier) are bound by provisions which are as equally protective
of Informix's rights as those set forth in Part II, sections A, 'Licensee's
Rights, Representations and Obligations' (and including limiting the End User to
using the Products solely as a component in the End Item and not as a component
in any other end item, solution, or application), B, 'Confidentiality,' D,
'Limited Warranties and Remedies, and F, 'Termination.' At Informix's request,
Licensee shall supply Informix with a copy of the form(s) of each such written
agreement, including an English translation if the agreement is written in a
language other than English.

6. Except as specifically permitted by this Agreement, Licensee shall not
directly or indirectly (a) use any Confidential Information of Informix to
create any computer software program or user documentation which is
substantially similar to any Product; (b) reverse engineer, disassemble or
decompile, or otherwise attempt to derive the source code for, any Product; (c)
encumber, time-share, rent or lease the rights granted by this Agreement; or (d)
copy, manufacture, adapt, create derivative works of, translate, localize, port
or otherwise modify any Products or other Confidential Information of Informix
or grant anyone a license to engage in similar conduct. Results of any benchmark
or other performance tests run on the Products may not be disclosed to any third
party without Informix's prior written consent.

7. As Licensee distributes the Products as part of an End Item such that the
proprietary notices are not visible to an End User, the manual accompanying the
End Item shall contain the following notice: 'Portions of this product are based
upon copyrighted materials of Informix Software, Inc.,' or such other phrase as
the parties may mutually agree, which states that the Application contains
Licensed Software.

8. Licensee does not have, and shall not claim that it has, any right in or to
any of the Products or the Confidential Information received from Informix other
than as specifically granted by this Agreement. Licensee shall promptly notify
Informix of any actual or suspected unauthorized use of the Products or use or
disclosure of the Confidential Information received from Informix, and shall
provide reasonable assistance to Informix (at Informix's expense) in the
investigation and prosecution of such unauthorized use or disclosure.

9. If Licensee is located in a member state of the European Economic Community,
it may engage in such conduct as is necessary to ensure the interoperability of
the Products in accordance with the European Community's Directive on Protection
of Computer Software (Brussels 14 May 1991) and local enactment thereof.
Additionally, use of the Products as described in the User Documentation,
including creation of an Application, shall not be considered using the Products
to create derivative works but shall be considered a modification of the
Products for purposes of Informix's limited warranty in section D.

10. Licensee shall comply with the Export Laws. Licensee hereby assures Informix
that it will not export or re-export directly or indirectly (including via
remote access) any part of the Product(s) or any Confidential Information to any
country for which a validated license is required under the Export Laws without
first obtaining a validated license. If at any time Informix determines the laws
of any country are or become insufficient to protect Informix's intellectual or
proprietary rights in the Products, Informix reserves the right to restrict or
terminate Licensee's and its Resellers' rights to use or distribute Products or
Confidential Information in that country. Licensee shall take all actions
reasonably necessary to enforce this restriction or termination and protect
Informix's rights.

11. Products acquired with United States Federal Government funds or intended
for use within or for any United States federal agency are provided with
'Restricted Rights' as defined in DFARS 252.227-7013(c)(l)(ii) or FAR 52.227-19.

B. Confidentiality.

1. Except for the specific rights granted by this Agreement, neither party shall
use or disclose any Confidential Information of the other party. A party
receiving Confidential Information from the other shall use the highest
commercially reasonable degree of care to protect that Confidential Information,
including ensuring that its employees have agreed in writing not to disclose
Confidential Information. Within fifteen (15) days of the request of the
disclosing party, and in its sole discretion, the receiving party shall either
return to the disclosing party originals and copies of any Confidential
Information and all information, records and materials developed from them by
the


---------------

  SEPARATELY WITH THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION.


receiving party, or destroy the same. Either party may only disclose the general
nature, but not the specific financial terms, of this Agreement without the
prior consent of the other party.

2. Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing herein shall prevent a receiving party
from disclosing all or part of the Confidential Information which is necessary
to disclose pursuant to the lawful requirement of a governmental agency or when
disclosure is required by operation of law, provided, however, that prior to any
such disclosure, the receiving party shall (a) promptly notify the disclosing
party in writing of such requirement to disclose, and (b) cooperate fully with
the disclosing party in protecting against any such disclosure and/or obtaining
a protective order.

3. Money damages will not be an adequate remedy if this section is breached and
therefore, either party may, in addition to any other legal or equitable
remedies, seek an injunction or similar equitable relief against such breach.

C. Services.

1. Regardless of whether a Reseller or an End User purchases a Service, Licensee
shall provide the appropriate first level of support, skilled instruction and
assistance to Resellers and End Users using or distributing the End Items. In
any event, Licensee must provide all support for its Application(s).

D. Limited Warranties and Remedies.

1. Informix warrants that: (a) the use or distribution of unmodified Products
will not violate the intellectual property rights of any third party under
copyright, trademark or trade secret law of the United States or any country
which is a party to the Berne Convention; (b) it has full power and right to
enter into this Agreement; (c) during the first ninety (90) days from the date
Licensee receives an unmodified Product ('Warranty Period') manufactured by
Informix, the media for those Products will, under normal use, be free of
defects in materials and workmanship and the Development Products will
substantially conform to the User Documentation.

2. EXCEPT FOR THESE EXPRESS LIMITED WARRANTIES, LICENSEE ACCEPTS THE PRODUCTS
'AS IS,' WITH NO OTHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND,
INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A
PARTICULAR PURPOSE. INFORMIX MAKES NO WARRANTIES REGARDING THE APPLICATION(S) OR
THE MEDIA OF THE PRODUCTS MANUFACTURED BY LICENSEE. Some jurisdictions do not
allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation
may not apply to Licensee.

3. In the case of an alleged breach of sections D.1.(a) or (b), Informix shall,
at its expense, indemnify, defend, save and hold harmless Licensee from and
against any claim, loss, expense or judgment (including reasonable attorney
fees) provided (a) Licensee promptly gives Informix written notice of the claim;
(b) Licensee provides all reasonable assistance to defend against the claim; and
(c) Informix has the right to control the defense or settlement of the claim.

4. Licensee's sole remedy for Informix's breach of section D.1.(c) shall be that
during the Warranty Period, Informix shall, in its sole discretion, provide
modifications to keep the Products in substantial conformance with the related
User Documentation, replace the Products, or refund the license fees paid to
Informix for the defective Products.

5.(A) INFORMIX'S LIABILITY TO LICENSEE OR ANY THIRD PARTY FOR A CLAIM OF ANY
KIND RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT, ANY PRODUCT OR ANY PRODUCT SERVICE, WHETHER FOR
BREACH OF CONTRACT OR WARRANTY, STRICT LIABILITY, NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE, SHALL
NOT EXCEED THE AGGREGATE OF FEES PAID TO INFORMIX FOR THE PRODUCT OR SERVICE
INVOLVED IN THE CLAIM. (B) IN NO EVENT WILL INFORMIX BE LIABLE FOR INDIRECT,
SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, LOST REVENUES
OR PROFITS, LOST DATA, WORK STOPPAGE, COMPUTER FAILURE OR MALFUNCTION), EVEN IF
ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. Some jurisdictions do not allow the
exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above
limitation or exclusion may not apply to Licensee. NO ACTION, REGARDLESS OF
FORM, ARISING OUT OF THE TRANSACTIONS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT MAY BE BROUGHT BY
LICENSEE MORE THAN 1 YEAR AFTER THE EVENTS WHICH GAVE RISE TO THE CAUSE OF
ACTION OCCURRED.

6. Licensee shall, at its expense, indemnify, defend, save and hold harmless
Informix from and against any claim, loss, expense, or judgment (including
reasonable attorneys' fees) which arises (a) from any asserted failure by
Licensee or a Reseller to act in accordance with this Agreement; (b)
misrepresentations made by Licensee or a Reseller; (c) any warranties granted in
excess of those made by Informix in this section D.; (d) inadequate
installation, maintenance or support by Licensee or a Reseller; (e) the
marketing of the Products by Licensee or a Reseller; or (f) from any other act
or failure to act by Licensee, its employees or agents.

E. Records, Audits, Payments, Discounts.

1. Licensee shall maintain complete and accurate records ('Copy Records')
[*]. Licensee shall deliver to Informix the Copy Records [*] accompanied by any
payment due to Informix relating to such Copy Records.

2. No more than once each year, at Informix's expense and with thirty (30) days'
prior written notice, Informix may audit all records of Licensee relating to
this Agreement during Licensee's normal business hours. If an audit reveals that
the amount which should have been paid to Informix is five percent (5%) or more
greater than the amount reported by Licensee, Licensee shall pay the cost of the
audit to Informix. Any shortfall uncovered as a result of an audit, as well as
the cost of the audit, if required by the preceding sentence, shall be paid by
Licensee to Informix within thirty (30) days of the date Informix notifies
Licensee that an amount is due.

3. Notwithstanding section E.2. above, if Informix reasonably suspects that
sections B.1. or E1. have been breached, Informix may audit Licensee's Product
related activities upon twenty-four (24) hours notice.

4. (a) Licensee shall pay any amounts owed to Informix on the date specified and
according to the terms of this Agreement. If a due date is not specified, that
payment shall be paid by Licensee within thirty (30) days of the date of
Informix's invoice. If Informix determines that Licensee's credit rating does
not support 'net-30' terms, Licensee shall prepay all fees. Each party is solely
responsible for its own expenses

incurred in the performance of this Agreement. (b) If Licensee fails to make any
payment when due, Informix may suspend delivery of Products, Services or other
services until the past due payment is made.

5. (a) Payments will be in United States dollars. Any overdue amount shall bear
interest at the maximum rate allowed by law. Costs of conversion, outside
collection and related bank charges shall be paid by Licensee. (b) Licensee
shall be responsible for all taxes, tariffs and transportation costs related to
this Agreement (including any value added or sales taxes) other than taxes on
Informix's income. All shipments by Informix shall be F.O.B. origin.

F. Termination.

1. This Agreement will terminate: (a) for breach of the terms of this Agreement
or for failure to pay any amount when due, upon thirty (30) days prior written
notice by either party to the other, unless the cause is susceptible of being
and is cured within the thirty (30) day notice period; (b) immediately upon
written notice to Licensee in the event Licensee breaches sections A.6. or B.1.;
(c) immediately and automatically if a receiver or other liquidating officer is
appointed for substantially all of the assets or business of licensee or if
Licensee makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors or if Licensee becomes
insolvent; or (d) upon written notice given by either party to the other at
least six (6) months prior to the end of the then current term. The date
termination becomes effective is called the 'Termination Date.'

2. (a) If this Agreement is terminated because of a breach of sections A.6. or
B.1., all rights granted under this Agreement will terminate. (b) If this
Agreement is terminated for any other reason, all rights granted under this
Agreement shall terminate, except for (i) Licensee's continued right to use the
Products for the sole purpose of fulfilling any contractual obligations for
Services to Resellers or End Users, and (ii) End Users' continued right to use
the Products for which the license fees have been paid to Informix. Use after
the Termination Date shall be subject to those provisions of this Agreement
which survive termination.

3. Subject to section F.2.(b), within thirty (30) days of the Termination Date,
all Products and related materials in Licensee's possession or control shall be
returned to Informix, or, upon Informix's written request, destroyed by
Licensee.

4. On the earlier of the date notice of termination is sent or the Termination
Date, all outstanding obligations to pay any amounts to Informix will become
immediately due and payable.

5. Sections A.4., 6., 8., 9., 10. and 11.; B.; D.; E.; F.; G.5. and G.7. shall
survive any termination of this Agreement.

G. General Provisions.

1. Informix and Licensee are independent contractors and shall so represent
themselves in all regards. Neither party may bind the other in any way.

2. This Agreement may not be assigned by Licensee without the prior written
consent of Informix, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. Any
purported assignment in contravention of this section is null and void. A
transfer of a controlling interest in the equity of Licensee shall be deemed an
assignment for purposes of this subsection. Subject to the foregoing, this
Agreement shall bind and inure to the benefit of any successors or assigns.

3. Neither party will be responsible for failure of performance, other than for
an obligation to pay money, due to causes beyond its control, including, without
limitation, acts of Cod or nature; labor disputes; sovereign acts of any
federal, state or foreign government; or shortage of materials.

4. Notices will be delivered to a party's address stated in the signature block
of this Agreement, or to another address which a party properly notified the
other that notices should be sent.

5. This Agreement is the complete and exclusive statement of the parties to this
Agreement on these subjects, and supersedes all prior written or oral proposals
and understandings relating thereto. This Agreement may only be modified by a
writing signed by an officer of the party to be bound. This Agreement takes
precedence over any purchase order issued by Licensee, which is accepted by
Informix for administrative convenience only. If any court of competent
jurisdiction determines that any provision of this Agreement is invalid, the
remainder of the Agreement will continue in full force and effect. The offending
provision shall be interpreted to whatever extent possible to give effect to its
stated intent.

6. Failure to require performance of any provision or waiver of a breach of a
provision does not waive a party's right to subsequently require full and proper
performance of that provision. Singular terms will be construed as plural, and
vice versa. Section headings are for convenience only and will not be considered
part of this Agreement.

7. This Agreement is governed by the laws of the State of California without
giving effect to its conflict of law provisions. The United Nations Convention
on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods will not apply to this
Agreement. Each party submits to the jurisdiction of the appropriate state or
federal courts in California. Informix may seek to enforce or prevent a breach
of any term of this Agreement in the appropriate courts of any state or country
in which the Products are deployed by Licensee or in which Licensee maintains an
office. The prevailing party in any suit under this Agreement shall recover all
costs, expenses and reasonable attorney fees incurred in such action. Nothing in
this Agreement will be deemed a waiver by either party of any and all available
legal or equitable remedies.

8. This Agreement supersedes any prior or contemporaneous agreement between the
parties. The agreement dated November 27, 1996, between the parties, is hereby
terminated.
