CocoBase® and Oracle9i
Application Server Instantly Generate Transparent Persistence, CMP/BMP
Entity EJBs, Session Beans and JSPs
San Francisco, CA. March 27, 2002 -
THOUGHT Inc.®, The Dynamic O/R Mappingtm Company, announces
CocoBase® Enterprise O/R, Version 4, optimization for Oracle9i
Application Server (Oracle9iAS). With the combined solution, Java
developers can easily develop and deploy transactional applications
on Oracle9iAS and seamlessly access and store mission critical information
in the industry leading Oracle9i Database, making it easier for
developers to build e-business applications requiring Java and SQL.
CocoBase® is a Dynamic O/R Mappingtm
layer that runs on Oracle9i Application Server and manages entry
and retrieval of data in the relational database. This reduces the
need to hand-code database access for transactional Java 2 Enterprise
Edition (J2EE) applications. Dynamically creating database access
information at runtime, CocoBase® and Oracle9iAS allow Java
applications to perform and scale with reusable flexibility.
"Oracle9i Application Server is
an ideal platform for building Internet applications," said
Thomas Kurian, senior vice president, Oracle9i Application Server
at Oracle Corporation. "CocoBase® and Oracle9iAS bridge
the gap between Java and SQL developers, making it easy to develop
and deploy transactional applications using Java."
"Adding support for the Oracle9i Application Server expands
the solutions available for our customers," said Ward Mullins,
CTO of THOUGHT Inc.® "CocoBase's® powerful mapping
technology makes it easy for developers to handle complex, enterprise-level
data mapping requirements."
