Eclipse IDE 3.0 Users Get Powerful Data Persistence With CocoBase® Enterprise O/R From Thought Inc.®




San Francisco, CA. - July 28, 2004

THOUGHT Inc.®, The Dynamic O/R Mapping™ Company, announces the integration of CocoBase® Enterprise O/R, the market leader and award winning Dynamic Object to Relational Mapping™ tool, with the open source Eclipse Development Environment Version 3.0. This provides Eclipse developers easy access to CocoBase's® powerful enterprise-level data persistence functionality from within the tool environment. Integrating CocoBase's® extensive feature-set for Object to Relational Mapping provides developers with the ability to quickly persist data using EJB CMP / BMP, Session Beans, Dynamic Transparent Persistence, and stand-alone persistence all in one easy to use toolset. Combine the CocoBase® ease of use with its' ability to decrease up to 85% of the database access development costs and you have a compelling value-add for companies using Eclipse.

Over time Eclipse has effectively expanded its' capabilities to be highly useful for enterprise-level developers. This has introduced requirements for managing complex sets of issues around persisting data. Thought Inc.® has responded by making CocoBase® easily available from within Eclipse to quickly solve those typical enterprise-level database access issues. Thought Inc.® customers are already benefiting from using Eclipse with CocoBase®. For example, United Airlines completed an application for their Loyalty Services division using both CocoBase® and Eclipse together.

"We are very satisfied with our choice to use CocoBase® for the Silver Wings Plus project. The tool greatly simplified the task of managing data in the application and their support staff's quick response time was key to our success," said Bruce Weiner, CTO, UAL Loyalty Services.

CocoBase® Enterprise O/R is a vendor neutral Dynamic Object to Relational Mapping™ layer that sits on top of the JDBC driver between the application objects (often running in an application server or stand-alone) and the database (which is usually a relational database for most modern IT organizations). CocoBase® manages the persistence and retrieval of data from the application to where it is stored in the relational database.

CocoBase® takes the database specific code and prewritten SQL out of the object and saves this information to the mapping layer (i.e. map), thus decoupling the object from being hard coded to the database. The database specific code and SQL is dynamically created at runtime. This allows objects to be easily reused over and over. This dynamic layer provides a multitude of performance and scaling optimizations that are easily changed by the programmer to best fit their specific needs.
