SANTA CRUZ, Calif. – January 28, 2002 - Lutris Technologies Inc., pioneering J2EEä as Java Services, today announced the expansion of their Lutris EAS 4 J2EE Application Server featuring the Services Architecture, with CocoBase® Enterprise O/R, the leading Dynamic Object-to-Relational Mapping tool. CocoBase® provides Lutris EAS developers the full suite of persistence services tailored to the J2EE and J2SE platforms.

“Lutris Technologies’ commitment to deliver a superior application development platform to their community is exemplified by their decision to offer an open and extensible solution like CocoBase® Enterprise O/R with their own J2EE Application Server," said Ward Mullins, CTO of THOUGHT Inc.® "Together, we deliver a flexible and customizable solution that can easily meet the challenging needs of the development community.”

CocoBase’s® mapping technology covers the breadth of EJB 2.0/1.1 Entity Beans, Session Beans, JSP’s on the J2EE platform and Java persistence code on the J2SE platform. CocoBase’s® interoperability with the leading development environments and modeling tools provide Lutris EAS developers the ability to use their tool of choice.

"Bundling CocoBase mapping technology with our Java Services platform reinforces our commitment to deliver best of breed tools and technologies to our ISV and VAR partners," said Michael Gardner, Lutris Vice President of Engineering.

Future releases of Lutris EAS will include an evaluation copy of CocoBase® as well as fully integrated sample applications and documentation to simplify J2EE and J2SE application development.

About CocoBase Enterprise O/R

CocoBase Enterprise O/R, OPTIMIZED for J2EE and J2SE Customer Success, solves the Object to Relational impedance mismatch. It 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 (simple to complex) relationships to J2EE (EJB 0/R) or J2SE (Java O/R) Application Servers.

CocoBase’s® unique Dynamic Mapping Layer insures that the developer can easily build and deploy applications for optimal scalability, performance with minimal maintenance. The CocoBase® technology is based on landmark patents issued to THOUGHT® Inc. for Repository based Object Mapping. It is the technology and product leader in the Java space. After years of product acceptance and thousands of installation sites, CocoBase® is in a class by itself in terms of delivering Object to Relational Mapping technology.

About Lutris EAS 4

Lutris EAS 4 is a modular, enterprise-quality J2EE application server implemented as a collection of Java Services installed on a Services Architecture kernel. Each J2EE API and additional non-J2EE custom services including SMS, CIMOM, Polling and Scheduling, as well as services wrapping legacy applications, are implemented as pluggable Java Services. All Java Services are automatically managed and represented through the JMX API to the fully graphical Lutris Management Console.

Lutris has designed EAS 4 for the ISV and VAR community that often requires a standard mechanism for extending the current set of J2EE services to address non-J2EE application models. Lutris EAS 4 also features Enhydra XMLC for device-independent presentation development. XMLC incorporates native support for HTML, J2ME, Flash, WML, cHTML, VoiceXML and custom XML development.

Lutris DynaCluster provides Enterprise quality session-level failover. Lutris EAS 4 also features support for Enhydra DODS and THOUGHT Inc.'s CocoBase for O/R mapping, as well as extensive integration with Borland JBuilder and Sun Forte IDE tools. Lutris EAS 4 source code is made available as part of its support agreement.
