JDO 2.0 To Be Included In CocoBase® Enterprise O/R Dynamic Object Relational Mapping™ Tool From THOUGHT Inc.®




San Francisco, CA. - August 24, 2004

THOUGHT Inc.®, The Dynamic O/R Mapping™ Company, announces the soon to be available integration of JDO 2.0 into CocoBase® Enterprise O/R, the market leader and award winning Dynamic Object to Relational Mapping™ tool. Preliminary work to create an implementation of JDO within CocoBase® has already started. Once the specification for JDO 2.0 is finalized, the details will be completed in CocoBase® and a working version will be available soon thereafter. The new version of JDO begins to address key aspects of Object to Relational Mapping as well as eliminates the requirement for manipulation of the byte-code. These key innovations make it possible for CocoBase® to support the JDO 2.0 specification in a standard and non-proprietary manner which is a win-win situation for developers. The combination of the powerful and mature CocoBase® Dynamic Object to Relational Mapping™ architecture with the standard JDO 2.0 API's is a great choice for corporations persisting data in their applications.

CocoBase® delivers to enterprise developers using JDO a powerful solution for managing complex data requirements in their Java applications. Typically, enterprise-level requirements for retrieving and updating information to the database are difficult and time-consuming development tasks within a project. Having available a tool that greatly simplifies the persistence programming and provides the flexibility to handle the myriad of unique needs specific to an application is the key to ensuring development success. Not only does CocoBase® provide superior persistence services for the entire J2EE and J2SE platforms, it saves up to 85% of the cost of database access development for a significant project cost savings.

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, thus decoupling the object from being hard coded to the database (i.e. dynamic mapping). 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.
