CocoBase® Generates CMP, BMP Beans and JSP
Instantly Inside Borland JBuilder 5 IDE


SAN FRANCISCO, CA., July 24, 2001 - THOUGHT, Inc. (, 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 generation templates.

"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 Component Developer.
