Black Duck Software, Microsoft Team to Automate Addition of Open Source Projects From CodePlex Into Black Duck KnowledgeBase and
Collaboration Makes CodePlex-Hosted Projects Available in Black Duck Open Source Project Database, Search Engine on an Ongoing Basis

WALTHAM, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/19/09 -- Black Duck Software, a leading provider of products and services for accelerating software development through the managed use of open source software (OSS), has entered into an agreement with Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT) through which projects from the Microsoft CodePlex open source project hosting site will be fed automatically into Black Duck's open source KnowledgeBase repository. The projects also will be searchable through Black Duck's, the leading search engine for open source and other downloadable code.

"CodePlex is one of the fastest-growing open source hosting sites," says Peter Vescuso, Black Duck EVP of marketing and business development. "This agreement will make it easier and faster for Black Duck to manage the steady stream of new projects hosted on the site." CodePlex currently hosts 9,000 projects and adds about 100 new projects each week. "By teaming with Microsoft, we are assured of comprehensive, ongoing coverage of CodePlex projects in the KnowledgeBase," adds Vescuso.

The Black Duck KnowledgeBase enables customers to leverage, manage and detect the use of open source components in software application development projects. Through the agreement customers are now assured of comprehensive coverage of CodePlex-hosted projects, many of which are Windows .NET based. Additionally, developers will be able to search for CodePlex projects using the search engine.

"We are teaming with Black Duck to ensure availability of CodePlex projects in the Black Duck KnowledgeBase," said Sam Ramji, Microsoft's Senior Director of Platform Strategy. "Black Duck's KnowledgeBase is a useful resource for development managers tasked with managing open source code in mixed-source development environments. The addition of CodePlex projects makes this a more powerful development resource."

Black Duck scours the Internet collecting open source and other downloadable code into its KnowledgeBase, a searchable repository of more than 200,000 open source projects collected from more than 4,100 Internet sites. More than 40,000 new projects have been added to the KnowledgeBase since January 2009.

CodePlex is Microsoft's OSS project hosting site. The majority of projects hosted on CodePlex are for Windows and .NET development, but CodePlex accepts projects for any technology.

Black Duck Software is a Microsoft Visual Studio Industry and Windows Embedded Partner.
