CocoBase® Optimized for Forte' For Java®


SAN FRANCISCO, April 17 -- THOUGHT INC. today announced that it has released its CocoBase Enterprise O/R Mapping product for Sun Microsystems' Forte™ for Java™ integrated developers' environment (IDE). THOUGHT INC.'s CocoBase Enterprise O/R Mapping extends the Forte for Java product with the ability to rapidly create and deploy Enterprise Java Beans™ ("EJB"™) technology. In conjunction with the Forte for Java IDE, CocoBase quickly and easily creates database mapping, and generates container-managed persistence (CMP), bean-managed persistence (BMP) or JavaServer Pages™ ("JSP"™) for deployment to any Java™ 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE™) application server.

"THOUGHT INC. has been an innovator in Java technology, and their Cocobase product made the company an ideal Forte for Java extension developer," states David Taber, director of portal and business development, Forte Tools, Sun Microsystems. "Now our users have direct access to a wide selection of modules and components that can easily be used with the Forte for Java IDE and deployed on any of the industry's leading J2EE application servers. We are also impressed with CocoBase's ability to increase performance."

THOUGHT INC. developed CocoBase Enterprise O/R for the Forte for Java product users, helping them to optimize performance and garner significant savings in development, deployment and maintenance costs. CocoBase Enterprise O/R appears as a menu option on the Forte™ for Java™ tool menu, making it easy to use the product from within the IDE. The product supports the deployment of bean components to multiple J2EE application servers.


CocoBase Enterprise O/R provides a powerful standard for bridging the chasm between objects used by EJB Servers and RDBMS's. 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 4 years of product acceptance and thousands of installation sites, CocoBase is in a class by itself in terms of Object to Relational Mapping. THOUGHT Inc. invented Repository based Object Mapping and then built a system on that technology that actually is more efficient than static solutions. This makes it an essential necessity for any Java Enterprise Component Developer.
