available, CocoBase's® Dynamic Object to Relational Mappingtm
for the J2ME MIDP platform, allows for J2EE and J2SE applications
to be easily downsized and deployed to the Palm and Pocket PC platforms
Java One - San Francisco, CA. March
27, 2002 - THOUGHT Inc.®, The Dynamic O/R Mappingtm
Company, announces the availability of J2ME MIDP support from CocoBase® Enterprise O/R, Optimized for J2EE, J2SE, and J2ME Customer Success.
Developers can now build with one O/R Mapping tool and deploy it
to any Java platform, from Micro to the Enterprise. Extending CocoBase®,
the market leader in O/R Mapping tools, to include support for the
J2ME MIDP platform makes great use of a mature toolset for an exciting
new Java platform.
"CocoBase® Micro arose from existing customers needing to deploy
mobile versions of their enterprise applications," said Ward
Mullins, CTO, THOUGHT Inc.® "CocoBase® was built to be lightweight for the Internet therefore porting
to the J2ME platform was a natural evolution."
Typically, programming applications
for micro devices requires different expertise than other systems.
additional support for J2ME as well as J2EE and J2SE, means developers
have a highly evolved architecture for persisting and managing data
now available for building handheld device applications. Developers
can leverage existing data models and object models in building
applications to deploy to the MIDP and Personal Java platforms.
The result is cutting the cost of database access development on
the J2ME MIDP platform by up to 85%.
Dynamic O/R Mappingtm
was designed for keeping objects compact and uncluttered with SQL,
JDBC and database specific information, in order to run as economically
as possible both locally and distributed. This makes CocoBase® an ideal choice for Palm and Pocket PC applications that
have limited memory and usage requirements. For example, CocoBase®
can access, manage and update a local database, such as the PointBase
Micro MIDP Relational Database, in the handheld and later directly
or wirelessly synchronize with the companies corporate database.
This is very useful when the user can benefit from having complete
and current information available from their handheld device.
