SAN FRANCISCO, CA., July 24, 2001 -
THOUGHT, Inc. (www.thoughtinc.com), the builder of CocoBase®
Enterprise O/R, a leader in Object to Relational Mapping technology
for J2EE/EJB servers, announced today that its solution is now optimized
for the Borland JBuilder IDE.
"We welcome CocoBase's integration
with JBuilder," said Tony de la Lama, vice president and general
manager of Borland's Java Business Unit. "Thought, Inc. and
Borland are committed to meeting the needs of the Enterprise customer
by providing and supporting integration with industry leading products."
CocoBase offers companies a quick and
easy way to integrate relational data with Enterprise JavaBeans
(EJB) applications. Customers using CocoBase with JBuilder now have
the ability to gain substantial time and labor savings through generating
scalable and high performance, Enterprise Ready Container and Bean
Managed Persistence (CMP/BMP) in addition to Java Server Pages,
with its dynamic mapping capability.
The CocoBase Enterprise O/R mapping
tool provides full support for EJB 1.0 and 1.1. CocoBase can consistently
generate all of the CMP/BMP entity beans as well as JSP with persistence
code necessary from its highly optimized and customer editable code
"Our integration with Borland
JBuilder supports both Container and Bean Managed Persistence as
well as the JSPs to get to the beans, providing a complete optimized
development platform for database access with EJB applications.
Combined, the two products deliver flexible and customizable persistence
that can easily adapt to our customers' needs," said Ward Mullins,
CTO of THOUGHT Inc.
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.
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 a necessity for any Java Enterprise

O/R, can be extended or changed based on the customers unique requirements
without having to involve costly consulting. This fine grained Object
to Relational mapping and dynamic code generation provides the developer
