New Version of CocoBase® Continues Industry Technical Leadership With Advanced POJO Data Persistence Support And Updated Integrations With Eclipse IDE, IBM WebSphere IDE And IBM's DB2 Database.




San Francisco, CA. - April 7, 2005

THOUGHT Inc.®, The Dynamic O/R Mapping™ Company announces that the new release of CocoBase® Enterprise O/R version 4.5 service release 7, the market leader and award winning Dynamic Object to Relational Mapping™ tool shipping since 1997. CocoBase® continues to lead the industry with important technology innovations that greatly simplify the persisting and management of enterprise data. Technology enhancements include additional advanced support for POJO Data Persistence, tight integrations with the new versions of the Eclipse IDE, IBM WebSphere IDE and IBM's DB2 Database. These improvements directly support the ability of CocoBase® to cut the cost of database access development by up to 85%, a major cost savings for companies especially when database access regularly takes an estimated 60% of the total time for completing an application.

CocoBase® continues to extend and add depth to it's industry leading support of Dynamic POJO Data Persistence™, formerly known as Dynamic Transparent Persistence™. The new release greatly simplifies the use of complex models with expanded aggregate support for models that share a single database table. Easy use of customer reflection and object accessor methodologies is available with increased extensibility in the reflection system. Use of non-relational centric application object models and ODBMS data is widened with increased support for virtual primary keys in the CocoBase® implementation of POJO.

CocoBase® is unparalleled in it's ease of use with new support for the current version 3.0.1 of the Eclipse development environment and the IBM WebSphere development environment version 5.1.2. Engineers are able to add powerful enterprise-level data persistence to their applications being developed with Eclipse and WebSphere. CocoBase® is available directly from within the development environments taking advantage of the simplicity of using Eclipse / WebSphere together with the flexible and intuitive nature of CocoBase®.

IBM's DB2 database gets improved support with the new version of CocoBase®. The integration with DB2 has focused on improved performance and meta data handling. Since CocoBase® is a layer between the database and the application working directly with the JDBC driver, it is able to provide many enhancements as well as extremely helpful solutions to how data is processed with DB2. For example, the new version of CocoBase® includes enhancements to update and error handling for stored procedure meta data that improves the ability to map to existing stored procedures. This also greatly increases the performance of stored procedure meta data handling in an application with CocoBase®. A key aspect of this integration is updated support for the latest JDBC drivers that support DB2 saving engineers time in dealing with the particular nuances of a new driver.
