Sessionless Data Persistence Now A Reality with New CocoBase® Enterprise O/R, Version 4.5, Service Release 4 From THOUGHT Inc.®





San Francisco, CA. October 2, 2003

THOUGHT Inc.®, The Dynamic O/R Mapping(tm) Company, announces the new release of CocoBase® Enterprise O/R Version 4.5, Service Release 4, the market leading and award winning Java tool for persisting data in enterprise-level applications. The new version offers an amazing new innovation, Sessionless Data Persistence, which greatly simplifies providing database access for web-based applications (i.e. applications that do not keep a constant connection to the database). Other features include expanded EJBQL Query abilities, full Unicode support within the tool, updated support for Eclipse / WebSphere IDE and new auto-validating between object model and database mappings. Each of these innovations continue to support the "Quick and Easy" nature of CocoBase®, which enables developers to cut the cost of database access development, deployment and maintenance by up to 85%.

Sessionless "Off-line Application" Data Persistence - This helps to simplify web application development for applications that are used in off-line environments like a web browser. It provides the ability to have an application reconnect to the persistence layer and call up the information from the previous connection (i.e. reset the session state). The persistence layer will then automatically reconcile any changes to the object model and related data and save them with the appropriate database commands. This provides required data integrity and optimistic locking for off-line environments, even when complex object models are used, greatly simplifying development of these applications.

Details of the new features in this release are; 1) Full EJBQL 2.1 Syntax supported including Scalar functions of MIN / MAX / Etc., with extensions for the ability to express Outer Join Object queries, 2) Updated development environment support for current versions of Eclipse and WebSphere IDE, 3) New diagnostic feature automatically validates Application Object Models to the Database Mappings for more accurate and error-free development, 4) Greater ease of use for developers using command line scripting oriented development approaches with simplified CocoBase® mapping format based on XML, 5) Extended Unicode support in CocoBase® Administrative GUI and Runtime tools so that developer can work in their own respective language.
