CocoBase® Enterprise O/R Goes MICRO with J2ME MIDP Support from THOUGHT Inc.®


Making 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. CocoBase's® 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.
