San Francisco, CA. - August 24, 2004
The Dynamic O/R Mapping Company, announces the integration
of the newly released CocoBase® Enterprise O/R, Version 4.5
- Service Release 6, the market leader and award winning Dynamic
Object to Relational Mapping tool with IBM's DB2 UDB Version
8.2 relational database system including its' JDBC JCC Type 4 driver.
CocoBase® delivers to enterprise developers using DB2 a powerful
solution for managing complex data requirements in their Java applications.
Typically, enterprise-level requirements for retrieving and updating
information to the database are difficult and time-consuming development
tasks within a project. Having available a tool that greatly simplifies
the persistence programming and provides the flexibility to handle
the myriad of unique needs specific to an application is the key
to ensuring development success. Not only does CocoBase® provide
superior persistence services for the entire J2EE and J2SE platforms,
it saves up to 85% of the cost of database access development for
a significant project cost savings.
A key requirement
of developers using DB2 is that the tool be tightly integrated with
the entire IBM platform. For example, CocoBase® works with the
IBM Rational Rose / XDE Object Modeling tool by importing the Object
Model in the XMI format and automatically maps the objects to the
relational data, auto-generates the persistence and Java code, and
can even create the relational tables as well. CocoBase® can
be also used entirely within the Eclipse / WebSphere Studio Application
Development (WSAD) environment to map objects to relational data
and generate the persistence components. CocoBase® is also tightly
integrated with the WebSphere Application Server providing EJB CMP
/ BMP data persistence, Session Beans, and Dynamic Transparent Persistence.
CocoBase® is written completely in the Java language so it will
run anywhere Java does such as I-Series, AS 400, OS 390, Linux,
has many customers using CocoBase® with DB2 and the IBM platform.
Key projects have been developed by IBM Professional Consulting
using CocoBase® for large government and company applications.
Thought Inc.® has partnered with IBM since the inception of
Java which has proved to consistently provide win-win solutions
for a multitude of companies. Our enterprise customers such as CVS,
Social Security Administration, United Airlines, Deutsche Bank and
others continue to rely upon CocoBase® for managing data in
their key company applications.
Enterprise O/R is a vendor neutral Dynamic Object to Relational
Mapping layer that sits on top of the JDBC driver between
the application objects (often running in an application server
or stand-alone) and the database (which is usually a relational
database for most modern IT organizations). CocoBase® manages
the persistence and retrieval of data from the application to where
it is stored in the relational database.
takes the database specific code and prewritten SQL out of the object
and saves this information to the mapping layer (i.e. map), thus
decoupling the object from being hard coded to the database. The
database specific code and SQL is dynamically created at runtime.
This allows objects to be easily reused over and over. This dynamic
layer provides a multitude of performance and scaling optimizations
that are easily changed by the programmer to best fit their specific

Enterprise O/R, Optimized for J2EE and J2SE Customer Success, solves
the Object to Relational impedance mismatch. The mature technological
leader in the industry has been available to customers since early
1997 and is in its' fourth major release. CocoBase virtually eliminates
the need to hand-code database access for EJB and Java Applications.
This can directly decrease up to 85% of the cost of database access
development for enterprise customers faced with deploying fine-grained
/ coarse grained relationships in company applications.
