CocoBase Accelerates BEA Weblogic 6.1
BEA Weblogic 6.1 Customers Get Automatic Transactional Cache with CocoBase® Enterprise O/R's Newest Service Release


SAN FRANCISCO, CA., November 7, 2001- THOUGHT Inc.® (, the leader in Object to Relational (O/R) Mapping Technology is pleased to announce the release CocoBase Enterprise O/R, Dynamic Mapping for the Enterprise, Version 3.1 Service Release 13 with automatic transactional cache memory persistence. Previously, customers had to manually configure CocoBase caching to integrate properly with BEA. Now, the BEA customer can create high performance distributed J2EE applications, automatically, reducing Weblogic's overhead and significantly increasing its performance.

The CocoBase caching system is a fully extensible design that allows customers to choose between an in-memory, non-distributed or distributed memory and/or disk caching implementation. Since the CocoBase caching system can disk persist, it does not require the startup overhead associated with typical caching systems. In memory only caches must re-read their data from the master database to repopulate the cache. By contrast a persistent cache stores a copy of the cache data on disk, and uses that copy to populate the cache memory on startup. Now that CocoBase can integrate with a variety of memory only and persistent cache (RDBMS & ODBMS) systems to provide customer caching, it currently offers the most comprehensive caching options for customers available in Java.

CocoBase® Enterprise O/R boosts productivity by eliminating the need to hand-code database access, automating fine-grained EJB and Java O/R development without the developer sacrificing performance, scaling or control. This can decrease the cost of database access development by as much as 85%. The easy to use mapping tool requires very little maintenance and provides additional savings, post-deployment. It is the only non-invasive, fully extensible and portable Mapping Layer, capable of transparent persistence across a distributed environment. THOUGHT Inc.® continues to innovate as the technology leader and meeting the rapidly changing needs of enterprise level application developers.
