Technologies to resell
CocoBase® Enterprise O/R
San Francisco, CA. June 24, 2002 -
THOUGHT Inc.®, The Dynamic O/R Mapping® Company, today announced
a relationship with Embarcadero Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: EMBT),
a leading provider of application and database lifecycle management
solutions, to resell CocoBase® Enterprise O/R along with Describe®,
Embarcadero's Unified Modeling Language (UML) design and development
The integration of CocoBase® with Describe® provides a proven
solution for managing database access by simplifying the process
of persisting relational data. CocoBase's® Dynamic O/R Mapping®
layer automatically creates maps and generates Container Managed
Persistence (CMP), Bean Managed Persistence (BMP), Session Beans,
Java Server Pages (JSP), and stand-alone Java persistence directly
from the UML-XMI object model.
"Embarcadero Technologies focuses on delivering easy-to-use
solutions and integrations that fully meet our customers' enterprise
development needs, both on the relational database side as well
as on the application development side," said Nate Skinner,
product manager for Describe. "The addition of enterprise-level
Object to Relational Mapping with CocoBase® is an excellent
choice for users of Describe, and is in line with the needs of our
enterprise customer base."
CocoBase® cuts the cost of database access development by up
to 85%. Tightly coupling CocoBase® with the Describe UML Design
tool for seamless development can further contribute to dramatic
time savings for developers. The ability to automatically add in
the persistence layer to the existing object model eliminates the
need for hand-coding JDBC, SQL, Java persistence, etc.
"Using CocoBase® in concert with Describe, developers can
get from concept to deployment in record time," said Ward Mullins,
CTO, THOUGHT Inc. ® "Partnering with Embarcadero Technologies
offers customers an exceptional solution for building J2EE and J2SE
Describe® is a next-generation
UML design and development tool that offers both rich modeling features
and productivity-focused development utilities to simplify analysis,
design and implementation for organizations working with Java, C++,
and IDL. Describe offers a seamless, embedded integration within
leading Java IDEs to provide a single, integrated modeling and development
environment. With superior navigation, wizard-based automation of
common tasks, and synchronous, round-trip engineering, Describe
turns the UML into a live tool for understanding and manipulating
the source base.
