San Francisco, CA. March 19, 2002 - THOUGHT Inc.®, The Dynamic O/R Mapping® Company, announces the availability of Dynamic Transparent Persistence tm Session Beans from CocoBase® Enterprise O/R, Optimized for J2EE and J2SE Customer Success. THOUGHT Inc.® includes a Generic Session Bean implementation that extends CocoBase® Dynamic Transparent Persistence tm into distributed J2EE environments. With Distributed Dynamic Transparent Persistence tm, the task of persistence occurs on an application server, rather than on a client, using the servers' built-in transaction support and CocoBase's® object tracking, management, and reconciliation features takes care of the navigation. With CocoBase®, developers can quickly create Session Beans without writing any navigation code.

"Innovating Dynamic Transparent Persistence
tm to work with Session Beans is another example of our commitment to offer developers a complete solution for persisting their data. With just a few lines of code, developers can manage simple to complex data needs with Session Beans," said Ward Mullins, CTO of THOUGHT Inc.®

Distributed Dynamic Transparent Persistence tm extends the general dynamic nature of CocoBase® by allowing the developer to persist relational data with a simple, non-invasive, non-proprietary, vendor neutral, re-distributable object. For example, a session bean running on one application server may access an Oracle relational database, while a second session bean running on a separate server machine is accessing a Sybase relational database. This is a truly distributed programming model in action. CocoBase® leverages the transaction coordination capabilities of the J2EE environment while minimizing the programming effort required to hand code the navigation.

This technology, in persisting and retrieving complex object models, acts as a Session Bean "server" service running within the host application server. The Generic Session Bean can serve any standard Java object model or object graph. Object graphs can have any combination of 1-1, 1-M, M-1 or M-M inter-object relationships. The CocoBase® Generic Session Bean is included as source code and is user extensible. To request a download of CocoBase® Enterprise O/R simply
