EJB3 JPA API Ported To Microsoft's .Net Platform In Newly Released Version 5.5 Of CocoBase® ORM From Thought Inc.®

.Net Developers Currently Lack A Persistence Architecture And Can Now Take Full Advantage Of JPA For Their Enterprise Data Needs.



San Francisco, CA. – May 9, 2008

THOUGHT Inc. ®, The Dynamic O/R Mapping™ (ORM) Company announces the new version 5.5 of CocoBase® JPA for .Net & Java, the Technology Leading and Award Winning Object to Relational Mapping Solution For Enterprise Persistence. The new release of CocoBase is the first and only JPA provider to innovate a full port to the .Net development platform. Corporate IT organizations doing .NET development can now make full use of the Java Persistence Architecture (JPA) API, the popular Java industry programming standard for persisting data. The newly ported solution offers corporate application developers one consistent set of persistence programming commands, and a common repository for building and deploying applications on both the Java and .NET platforms. This is an interesting technology innovation that offers a solution for meeting the requirements of managing enterprise data not currently available for the .Net platform. It offers enterprise IT organizations the ability to dramatically increase code standardization, expand code reuse and decrease development costs.

The first release of the JPA standard for .NET, includes local JPA provider APIs, and JPAQL Object Querying, which together are an excellent baseline set of data persistence commands and facilities. This should be a welcome addition to the .NET development platform, which has not yet created a formal ORM (Object to Relational) API for persisting enterprise data models. The existing .NET ADO approaches provide developers a method for dealing with simple data requirements, but not the object lifecycle or object level querying. Giving .NET developers access to JPA services offers them the ability to manage more complex data persistence requirements in their applications. As a development platform, .NET under the guidance of Microsoft is widely used by large enterprise IT organizations worldwide. These corporations typically have data management requirements that can be quite complex, therefore, a solution such as CocoBase JPA fills a vital and missing niche for these organizations.

The CocoBase ORM solution is focused on meeting the complex persistence needs of enterprise application development. It has established itself as the only ORM solution that delivers the full range of enterprise persistence requirements with the depth and flexibility required now available for .NET development as well. CocoBase's JPA performance is noted to be on average 200% to 400% faster than other Java JPA providers such as Hibernate, which is critical for managing data in todays' large corporate applications. A unique strength of the technology is its' ability to make available corporate legacy data for modern development through a graphically driven flexible mapping architecture. The solution includes in-depth training, comprehensive mentoring as well as on-demand technical support, all of which is expected from a commercial vendor such as Thought Inc.

CocoBase® has consistently distinguished itself as the only “Enterprise ORM Solution” since it first shipped in early 1997. Customers cut the costs of the development organization by up to 25% and more with the commercial-based CocoBase® ORM Technology and Services Solution. This provides corporate IT organizations a solution that gives back up to $3 and more for every $1 spent on CocoBase® making it's use essentially free. This is why CocoBase® is used by over 300 customers worldwide including many key Fortune 1,000 companies.
