Agreement, "Software" shall mean the software products set forth
in Attachment A, including all versions, including current,
previous, and subsequent versions, of all software products,

with the Application, in the geographic areas specified in
Attachment A ("Territory"). Reseller shall require each
End-User, before it may use or install the Application, to
execute a written license agreement containing, at a minimum,
the required provisions specified in Attachment C. Reseller
shall indemnify BroadVision for all damages caused by Reseller's
failure to include required terms in its sublicense agreements
with its End-Users. Reseller may also obtain End-User Licenses
for its own use, in the event that it itself intends to operate
production versions of the Software; such End-User Licenses
shall be governed by the terms and conditions of this Agreement,
as if Reseller had sublicensed to an End-User.
C. PROHIBITED USES. Reseller may not (a) rent, lease, or loan the
Software other than allowed for in this Agreement; (b)

execution of this Agreement and will thereafter download any
separately priced version of Software promptly after the
issuance of its purchase order to BroadVision for such version.
Reseller will promptly notify BroadVision if it makes any copies
of the Software as downloaded if such copy would require the
payment of additional fees to BroadVision. Software shall be
deemed accepted upon delivery. Reseller may produce its own
copies of the Software for delivery to End-Users from a master
copy provided by BroadVision so long as it notifies BroadVision
in writing of any copies that it makes for such purpose and pays
any applicable fees.
E. The prices stated in BroadVision quotations are exclusive of any
federal, state, municipal, value-added, foreign withholding or
other governmental taxes, duties, fees, excises, or tariffs now
or hereafter imposed on the production, storage, licensing,
sale, transportation, import, export, or use of the Software or
any improvements, alterations, or amendments to the Software.
Reseller shall be responsible for, and if necessary reimburse,
BroadVision for all such taxes, duties, fees, excises, or
tariffs, except for governmental or local taxes imposed on
BroadVision's corporate net income. Overdue payments shall be
subject to a finance charge of one and one-half percent (1 1/2%)
for each month or fraction thereof that the invoice is overdue,
or the highest interest rate permitted by applicable law,
whichever is lower. BroadVision shall also be reimbursed for its
collection costs in the event of late payments, including
reasonable attorney's fees.

A. BroadVision agrees to provide Reseller with software maintenance
subject to the provisions and conditions listed below. Reseller

electronic mail support provided during BroadVision's
normal working hours, and (ii) standard releases
containing improvements or modifications to the Software
that BroadVision provides to its maintenance customers
generally where such improvements or modifications are
not priced as separate new products or options
("Standard Release"). A copy of BroadVision's support
Page 2 of 8
procedure, including targeted response times, is set
forth in Attachment D hereto.
ii. BroadVision shall provide software maintenance for any
Standard Release only until one year after shipment of
the subsequent Standard Release.
iii. Reseller shall designate one Support Contact Person for
each Customer, who shall be responsible for
communicating support issues to BroadVision; provided,
that in no event may the total number of such Support
Contact Persons exceed eight (8) unless otherwise agreed
by BroadVision. Reseller agrees to provide BroadVision
with timely written notification containing all details
of software problems necessary for BroadVision to
diagnose such problems. Reseller agrees to cooperate
fully in providing BroadVision with Reseller's source
code, in machine-readable form, and other materials
necessary to reproduce a reported software problem.
Subject to Reseller's security requirements, Reseller
agrees to provide BroadVision reasonable direct or
remote access and test time on Reseller's BroadVision
system, for the purpose of diagnosing reported software
problems. If BroadVision provides on-site services at
Reseller's request in connection with software
maintenance, Reseller shall reimburse BroadVision for
all travel and other reasonable out-of-pocket expenses
incurred with respect to such services.
iv. Software maintenance will also include any patch
releases ("Patch Releases") that BroadVision makes
available to its maintenance customers generally. Patch
Releases are intended to address material deviations
between the Software and its published specifications
until a Standard Release can be made available. Reseller
may install Patch Releases at its option.
v. BroadVision shall not be responsible for maintaining
Software that fails to comply with its published
specifications if such non-compliance is the result of
modification of the Software by Reseller or third
parties. If BroadVision expends its time on a
noncompliance found to be the result of any of the
preceding or due to the operation of the Application,
Reseller shall pay BroadVision for such time at
BroadVision's then-current hourly consulting rate.
B. BroadVision will give Reseller at least sixty days advance
notice of the expiration of the applicable annual maintenance
period and the annual maintenance fees for the ensuing annual
maintenance period. Such prices will be determined in accordance
with the Master Agreement and this Agreement. Reseller may renew
maintenance for all (but not less than all) copies of the
Software licensed to it by giving BroadVision written notice of
such renewal on or before the beginning of the applicable
maintenance renewal period. In the event of termination for
Reseller's breach or Reseller's convenience, all maintenance
fees shall be immediately due and payable without notice; in the
event of termination for any other reason, Reseller shall be
entitled to a refund of maintenance fees already paid, prorated
for the unused portion of such fees. If BroadVision determines
that it is in its best interests to cease providing its
customers generally with maintenance for any or all of the
Software, BroadVision may discontinue its maintenance
obligations to Reseller (and to Reseller's Customers if
BroadVision exercises its rights under Section 12 hereof) with
respect to such Software by giving Reseller at least one year's
prior written notice of such discontinuance.
C. Annual software maintenance fees are due and payable in advance;
in all other respects payments are subject to the terms and
conditions of the Agreement.
D. If Reseller initially declines software maintenance and then
subsequently elects to commence maintenance, or if maintenance
for an item of Software is discontinued at Reseller's request
and then subsequently renewed, Reseller shall pay the
maintenance fees that would have been due for the period during
which maintenance was not provided.
A. Reseller shall employee the highest reasonable professional
standards in selling and supporting the Application, and shall
avoid deceptive, misleading, or unethical practices that may be
detrimental to BroadVision or to the Software. Reseller
personnel shall obtain training from BroadVision, at
BroadVision's then-current standard rates, in the proper use of
the Software, and shall provide, or arrange for BroadVision to
provide, such training to Customers where appropriate. Reseller
and BroadVision shall
Page 3 of 8
comply with all laws applicable to the subject matter of this
Agreement. Failure to honor the terms of this section shall
constitute a material breach of this Agreement; provided,
however, that prior to BroadVision terminating this Agreement
for any such failure, BroadVision and Reseller will promptly
attempt to resolve any disagreement over such failure in good
B. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement,
BroadVision hereby grants to Reseller a non-exclusive,
non-transferable, non-sublicenseable license to use the
BroadVision trademarks, trade names, and logos (the "Marks") to
advertise the Software in the Territory. Reseller acknowledges
BroadVision's ownership and exclusive rights in the Marks.
Reseller's use of the Marks shall inure to the benefit of
BroadVision. Reseller shall not attempt to register the Marks or
adopt, use or attempt to register any confusingly similar marks.
BroadVision may immediately terminate this trademark license if
Reseller's use of the Marks does not conform to BroadVision's
then-current standards and usage policy. Reseller shall state at
the first instance of each use of a Mark that the Mark is
BroadVision's trademark and include the symbols TM or (R) as
appropriate. Reseller shall not use any trademark, word, symbol,
letter or design in combination with the Marks in any manner
which would create a combination mark.
C. Unless otherwise requested by BroadVision, Reseller shall ensure
that the phrase "Personalized by BroadVision One-To-One" shall
appear on the logon screen, splash screen, or other first view
of the Application seen by consumers or other end-users when
they enter the Application and will use all commercially
reasonable efforts to obtain the consent of Customers to the
foregoing in connection with their respective uses of the
Application. The above phrase shall be a hypertext link to a URL
specified by BroadVision. Reseller's use of the phrase shall be
in accordance with BroadVision's guidelines for use of the mark.
6. TITLE TO SOFTWARE.
Reseller shall include BroadVision's copyright or proprietary rights
notice on any copies of the Software or associated documentation,
including copyright or proprietary rights notices of third parties that
are included on media or in documentation provided by BroadVision.
Reseller acknowledges that the Software is the property of BroadVision
or its licensors.
Subject to BroadVision's ownership of any materials or technology
provided to Reseller, including without limitation the Software, the
results of all development efforts made solely by Reseller, including
all intellectual property rights in any software interface coding or
programs created solely by Reseller during the term of this Agreement to
enable the Software to operate within Reseller's hosted environment
("Developments"), shall be owned by Reseller, unless otherwise agreed or
unless such Developments are supported on an ongoing basis by
BroadVision, in which case BroadVision will have or retain all ownership
rights, including intellectual property rights in the Developments. To
the extent that BroadVision would otherwise have a claim of ownership in
Developments, BroadVision hereby assigns all rights in and to such
Developments to Reseller.
BroadVision warrants that the Software will conform in all material
respects to its written specifications when installed and for 90 days
thereafter. For purposes of this Agreement, the sole source of such
specifications shall be BroadVision's written user documentation as
provided to Reseller concurrently with the delivery of the Software.
BroadVision further warrants that the Software is and shall be "Year
2000 Compliant". For purposes of this Section 7, the term "Year 2000
Compliant" means that, through January 31, 2001 (a) no value for a
current date will cause any interruption in operation; (b) date-based
functionality will behave consistently for dates prior to, during, and
after year 2000; (c) in all interfaces and data storage, the century in
any date must be specified either explicitly or by unambiguous
algorithms or inferencing rules; and (d) year 2000 must be recognized as
a leap year. BroadVision further warrants, so long as Reseller is
purchasing maintenance services pursuant to Section 4 hereof, that its
maintenance services will be performed in a professional and workmanlike
manner. Reseller will notify BroadVision during or within thirty (30)
days after the expiration of the applicable warranty period set forth
above of any nonconformity. Where a material nonconformity exists within
the warranty period, and proper notice has been given to BroadVision,
BroadVision will use due diligence to correct the nonconformity and
provide Reseller with one copy of any such corrected version of the
Software, or, if BroadVision is unable to correct such nonconformance
within a reasonable period of time, refund all license fees paid to it
for the Software, or the most recent software maintenance fee paid for
the Software, if the nonconformity relates to a Standard
Page 4 of 8
Release or maintenance services delivered pursuant to Section 4 herein.
THESE WARRANTIES ARE IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER WARRANTIES AND CONDITIONS,
EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, AND BROADVISION EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ANY IMPLIED
WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE,
8. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.
Except for a party's liability under Section 9 hereof and for breaches
of Section 13 of the Master Agreement and Section 10 hereof, each
party's liability to the other under this Agreement or for any other
reason relating to the products and services provided under this
Agreement, including claims for contribution or indemnity, shall be
limited to the amount paid to BroadVision under this Agreement.
NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY REMEDY UNDER
THIS AGREEMENT, EACH PARTY AGREES THAT IN NO EVENT SHALL THE OTHER PARTY
BE LIABLE FOR SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING
LOST PROFITS OR LOSS OF USE, HOWEVER ARISING INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE;
PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT LOST REVENUE OR LOST PROFITS ARISING FROM A
PARTY'S UNAUTHORIZED USE, DISCLOSURE OR DISTRIBUTION OF THE OTHER
PARTY'S CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE
SOFTWARE) SHALL BE DEEMED A DIRECT DAMAGE.
9. INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS INDEMNITY.
A. BroadVision will defend any action against Reseller claiming
that the Software constitutes infringement or misappropriation
of any patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret or
intellectual property right. BroadVision shall indemnify
Reseller for any reasonable expense incurred by Reseller in
connection with the foregoing. BroadVision's obligations under
this section are conditioned upon BroadVision having sole
control of any such action, and upon Reseller notifying
BroadVision immediately in writing of the claim and giving
authority, information, and assistance necessary to settle or
defend such claim. If the use of the Software infringes or is
enjoined, or BroadVision believes it is likely to infringe or be
enjoined, BroadVision may, at its sole option, (i) procure for
Reseller the right to continue use of the licensed Software as
furnished; (ii) replace the licensed Software; (iii) modify the
licensed Software to make it non-infringing, provided that the
Software still substantially conforms to the applicable
specifications; or (iv) if BroadVision, after using all
commercially reasonable efforts, is unable to accomplish the
foregoing remedies, terminate the license and refund the license
fee for the Software, less a proportional adjustment for the
time the Software was used by Reseller, equal to the ratio of
the time elapsed since the delivery date to five (5) years. The
indemnity provided herein shall not apply if the alleged
infringement arises from: (a) the use of other than a currently
supported, unaltered release of the licensed Software; (b) the
use of Software that has been modified or merged with other
programs by Reseller; or (c) the use of the licensed Software in
combination with software or hardware not provided under this
Agreement or with the Application. The foregoing states
BroadVision's sole and exclusive liability for patent,
copyright, or other proprietary rights infringement or for
breach of any express or implied warranty of title, ownership or
B. Reseller will defend any action against BroadVision (a) claiming
that any software provided by Reseller to Customers (other than
the Software) infringes or misappropriates any patent,
copyright, trademark, trade secret or intellectual property
right; or (b) resulting from Reseller's acts, omissions, or
misrepresentations. Reseller shall indemnify BroadVision for any
reasonable expense incurred by BroadVision in connection with
the foregoing. Reseller's obligations under this section are
conditioned upon Reseller having sole control of any such
action, and upon BroadVision notifying Reseller immediately in
writing of the claim and giving authority, information, and
assistance necessary to settle or defend such claim.
10. CONFIDENTIALITY OF SOFTWARE AND DOCUMENTS.
A. Except to the extent permitted in the Master Agreement, Reseller
shall not reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, or otherwise
disseminate the Software, including operating instructions, user
manuals, and training materials, in any medium except as
B. Reseller acknowledges that the Software is BroadVision's
extremely valuable trade secret. With respect to any copies of
the Software retained by Reseller for its internal use, Reseller
shall not disclose the Software to any third parties
Page 5 of 8
(other than onsite contractors who are subject to confidentiality
and use restrictions similar to those contained in this
Agreement) nor use the Software for any purpose other than as
expressly stated in this Agreement. With respect to copies of the
Software that Reseller procures or makes for redistribution, such
copies may only be redistributed so long as the recipient
satisfies the requirements of this Agreement and, without
limiting the foregoing, is subject to the use and disclosure
restrictions of Attachment C.
C. Reseller shall not release the results of any benchmark of the
Software, or of any third party products embedded in the
Software, without BroadVision's prior written approval.
11. AUDIT RIGHTS.
No more than once annually, BroadVision may audit Reseller's records to
ensure that license and other fees have been properly paid in compliance
with this Agreement. Any such audit will be conducted during regular
business hours at Reseller's offices and shall not interfere
unreasonably with Reseller's business activities. If an audit reveals
that Reseller has underpaid its total fees by more than five percent
(5%), then Reseller shall pay BroadVision's reasonable costs of
conducting the audit, in addition to the underpaid amount.
A. This Agreement shall be for an initial term of forty-eight
months unless the Agreement is terminated previously as provided
B. BroadVision may terminate this Agreement upon 30 days prior
written notice and an opportunity for Reseller to cure within
such 30 days: (a) any material breach of this Agreement by
Reseller; or (b) failure by Reseller to pay license fees for
Software under the payment terms specified in this Agreement or
as stated on BroadVision's invoice for such Software. Reseller
may terminate this Agreement upon 30 days written notice and an
opportunity for BroadVision to cure any material breach of this
Agreement by BroadVision with such 30 days.
C. Upon termination of this Agreement for any reason, the following
i. Reseller's rights under this Agreement shall
automatically cease, provided that all sublicenses shall
continue according to their terms. Reseller may continue
using the release of the Software then in its possession
solely for the purpose of continuing technical support
for sublicenses granted prior to termination.
ii. Reseller shall return to BroadVision or destroy the
Software and other marketing materials, software, and
data, except as required for the operation of Section
iii. BroadVision shall, within sixty (60) days after the
effective date of termination of this Agreement have the
option to assume the responsibility of providing
maintenance and support for the Software to any or all
of Reseller's customers pursuant to BroadVision's
standard terms and conditions for the performance of
such services, provided such customer requests such
assumption and BroadVision consents. Reseller shall
provide BroadVision with copies of all maintenance
agreements in force with End-Users. Reseller shall pay
to BroadVision a prorated portion of the maintenance
fees paid by such customers and retained by Reseller for
the remaining terms of such agreements. Notwithstanding
the foregoing, so long as Reseller is paying BroadVision
Revenue Fees and annual maintenance fees for other
copies of Software licensed to Reseller (including
Software subsequently sublicensed to Customers),
BroadVision will continue to provide maintenance
services to Reseller pursuant to Section 4 hereof
following termination or expiration of this Agreement
unless BroadVision terminates this Agreement (a) because
Reseller has not made payments under the Master
Agreement or this Agreement when due, or (b) for
Reseller's use, reproduction, disclosure or distribution
of any of the Software in a manner not authorized by
this Agreement or the Master Agreement.
iv. Reseller's obligations under Sections 2 (to the extent
that any amounts are owed to BroadVision as of the
termination date), and Sections 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12,
and 13 will survive the termination of this Agreement.
All other rights and obligations of the parties will
cease upon termination of this Agreement.
A. WAIVER/AMENDMENT. No waiver, amendment, or modification of any
provision of this Agreement shall be effective unless in writing
and signed by the party against whom such waiver, amendment, or
modification is sought to be enforced. No failure or delay by
either party in exercising any
Page 6 of 8
right, power or remedy under this Agreement, except as
specifically provided herein, shall be deemed as a waiver of any
such right, power, or remedy.
B. ASSIGNMENT. Either party may assign this Agreement to an entity
acquiring substantially all of its assets or merging with it,
provided that such assignee agree in writing to assume all
obligations under this Agreement. Except as set forth above,
neither party may assign any of its rights or delegate any of
its obligations under this Agreement to any third party without
the express written consent of the other. Any attempted
assignment in violation of the foregoing shall be void and of no
effect. Subject to the above, this Agreement shall be binding
upon and inure to the benefit of the successors and assigns of
the parties hereto.
C. DISPUTES. The rights of the parties hereunder shall be governed
by the laws of the State of California without giving effect to
principles of conflicts of laws. Any suits brought hereunder may
be brought in the federal or state courts in Santa Clara County,
California, and Reseller submits to the jurisdiction thereof.
The parties expressly exclude the application of the 1980 United
Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of
Goods, if applicable.
Reseller acknowledges that the Software contains trade secrets,
the disclosure of which would cause substantial harm to
BroadVision that could not be remedied by the payment of damages
alone. Accordingly, BroadVision will be entitled to seek
preliminary and permanent injunctive relief and other equitable
relief for any breach of BroadVision's intellectual property
rights in the Software.
D. SEVERABILITY. If any provision of this Agreement shall be held
by a court of competent jurisdiction to be contrary to law, the
remaining provisions of this Agreement shall remain in full
force and effect.
E. EXPORT. Reseller acknowledges that the laws and regulations of
the United States restrict the export of the Software. Reseller
agrees that it will not export or re-export the Software in any
form without first obtaining the appropriate United States and
foreign government approvals.
F. NOTICE. Any notice, consent, or other communication hereunder
shall be in writing, and shall be given personally, by confirmed
fax or express delivery to either party at their respective

Attn: Roger Lee
or such other address as may be designated by written notice of
either party. Notices shall be deemed given when delivered or
transmitted, or seven days after deposit in the mail.
G. INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS. The parties' relationship shall be
solely that of independent contractor and nothing contained in
this Agreement shall be construed to make either party an agent,
partner, joint venturer, or representative of the other for any
H. FORCE MAJEURE. If the performance of this Agreement, or any
obligation hereunder, except the making of payments, is
prevented, restricted, or interfered with by reason of any act
or condition beyond the reasonable control of the affected
party, the party so affected will be excused from performance to
the extent of such prevention, restriction, or interference.
I. ENTIRE AGREEMENT. All products and services delivered by
BroadVision to Reseller are subject to the terms of this
Agreement, unless specifically addressed in a separate
14. ESCROW. If Reseller so elects within ninety (90) days after the
execution of this Agreement, Reseller may become a party to the

BROADVISION SUPPORT POLICY
Case tracking is the procedure of tracking customer-reported problems.
BroadVision support engineers open cases in the order in which they are
received. Cases have different priorities and will be treated accordingly.
Standard support is provided from 9am to 6pm PT in America, and 9am to 6pm GMT
in Europe. (For enhanced support coverage see the section below concerning
After-hours support.) If a case hasn't been opened after 1 day the Support
manager will be notified. After 2 days the Support Director will be notified.
CASE ESCALATION AND 'HOT SITE' STATUS
The support engineer opening a case will set case priority. A customer may
request that a case be escalated at any time by contacting the Support engineer
or the Support Manager.
Unusually important site problems will be considered 'hot sites'. This includes
such issues as serious reliability problems or significant performance problems
on production systems. To escalate a case, the customer may notify their Support
engineer or the Support Manager. A 'hot site' will gain Executive level
attention and all necessary resources to resolve the issue as quickly as
A hot site will have a dedicated Support engineer until it is resolved. The
customer is expected to provide technical resources, remote access and
reproducible cases as necessary. BroadVision will manage a list of issues to be
resolved in the escalation to be communicated daily by the assigned Support
engineer. Once all the issues are resolved, the escalation to 'hot site' will be
The response and turnaround times indicated below are BroadVision's most
reasonable estimates of such times. Such times may be impacted by a number of
factors beyond BroadVision's reasonable control, including without limitation
the fact that the source of the problem may exist with a component not provided
by BroadVision. BroadVision will not be deemed to be in breach of its
maintenance obligations to Reseller if it fails to meet such response or
turnaround times due to factors beyond BroadVision's reasonable control.
The highest level is reserved for site-down type failures. Once BroadVision
support is notified that a site is down they will start work to restore the site
as soon as possible. If a site is not restored after 4 hrs of work the Support
engineer will move the site to 'hot site' status. The WPSO engineer who worked
on the site will be contacted and Support Director notified of escalation. After
1 day of escalation VP WPSO and VP Engineering will be notified. The VPs will
identify additional resources to work on the problem. After 2 days of escalation
the CEO will be notified.
Level 2 is for serious problems on a site not causing total failure. BroadVision
Support will start work on the site as soon as they are aware of the problem. If
a workaround has not been developed after 1 day of work by Support then the
Support Director will be notified. After 3 days of work VP WPSO and VP
Engineering will be notified.
The third level is for general issues on a site not causing serious problems. If
a case isn't resolved after 2 days the Support Manager will be notified. After 3
days the Support Director will be notified.
The lowest level is for questions or issues on a site not requiring immediate
action. If a case isn't resolved after 3 days the Support Manager will be
notified. After 5 days the Support Director will be notified.
An optional support package is available to provide support 7 days a week, 24
hrs a day for assistance with serious problems on live-sites. It will not
support development questions/issues. Customers with this support will be
provided with a single pager number to contact the on-call Support person in the
case of a priority 1 support call. It is preferred that the customer must
provide BroadVision dialup access to the site in order to for support to able to
provide assistance in the recovery process. The Support engineer on call will
have a laptop so that he/she can then dial into the website and help effect
DOCUMENTING KNOWN PROBLEMS
This note is to announce BroadVision's policy of sharing bug lists with
customers. Several customers and the field have requested that we share an
edited version of the bug list with our customers. The intent is to pro-actively
let the customers know about known problems and document workarounds. Support,
engineering and product management will decide which problems to report.
Today we publish some of this information in the Known Problems section of the
Release Notes. The following is our policy of enhancing this information as well
as updating the known bugs every month and making it available through the
support section of the BroadVision web site.
1. Currently we provide the following information in the Known Problems
section of the Release Notes. The Release Notes will be updated upon
Bug Information: problem ID, brief description, any known workaround
2. Starting with version 4.1 Technical Support will update the Known Bugs
section to include known bugs reported since the last release. This will
be updated once a month. Since the updates will be written by Technical
Support, it will be directed to an engineering audience. At product
release time, Tech Pubs will roll them into the formal Release Notes.
3. We will also make the following patch information available on our Tech
Required previous patches:
PRODUCT ENHANCEMENT REQUEST PROCEDURE
TO SUBMIT AN ENHANCEMENT REQUEST
Log in to Broadvision.com\login.html. Select Support, and then click "Submit a
new ticket". Include the text "Enhancement" in the description before submitting
the request, and the product you wish to submit an enhancement request for.
PM will review enhancements on a weekly basis and respond to you, the submitter,
with the status
GETTING ENHANCEMENTS INTO AN UPCOMING PRODUCT RELEASE
At the start of each project Product Manager will go through the enhancement
list with ISG and engineering to determine which should be included in the next
release. If there are specific features that need to be included to satisfy a
project need, please include that information in the ER when submitted, and
email the appropriate Product Manager.
This note clarifies BroadVision's policy on compatibility between production
releases. BV will provide a migration path between the objects, templates, and
scripts, components and content that customers have created with a production
release of One-To-One to the next production release of One-To-One. Addressing
these in turn:
1. BroadVision Standard objects - if we change the tag syntax of BV standard
objects we will provide tools and procedures needed to migrate those objects
from one release to the next. This will provide migration path for templates
using BV standard objects.
2. BroadVision Standard components - if we change the signature of BV standard
components we will provide tools and procedures needed to migrate scripts from
one release to the next. This will provide migration path for scripts using BV
3. BroadVision APIs - we will in general maintain backward compatibility between
BroadVision APIs. In cases, where this is not possible or desirable we will
provide tools and procedures to migrate the APIs. This will provide migration
path for custom dynamic objects that use our APIs.
4. Database - when we make the schema changes we will provide migration tools to
update older schema and content from one production release of One-To-One to the
Please note that we do not guarantee compatibility between Beta and FCS versions
of any given release. However, we will strive to not have major API, tag-syntax
or schema changes between Beta and FCS releases.
If you have any questions or suggestions please send email to
SUPPORT POLICY FOR THIRD-PARTY SOFTWARE PRODUCTS
Broadvision's policy is to certify One-To-One products against the versions of
third-party products that are released and available sufficiently in advance of
Broadvision's release date to allow for complete testing. This often means that
third-party vendors will release new versions of their products prior to the
next release of One-To-One. While Broadvision would prefer that customers use
the software versions with which One-To-One was tested, we also understand that
customers will, for various reasons, want to use these new versions of
Broadvision will support customers who use newer versions of third-party
products as long as the vendor guarantees forward compatibility. One-To-One
products should work on these new versions. By support we mean that we will work
with the customer to resolve compatibility problems with the third-party vendor.
Broadvision will also consider, at our option, developing and releasing minor
fixes for our products in order to resolve problems with new versions of
Broadvision will usually test and certify these newer versions of third-party
products in the next release of One-To-One. This can be a good indicator that
the newer versions will work with the current release of One-To-One. In
exceptional cases Broadvision may determine that the newer version of a
third-party product can not be used with One-To-One because it fails in some way
during the testing cycle. In this case we will continue to certify the older
