New Version 4.5 of CocoBase® Enterprise O/R Makes Quantum Leap Forward With Dynamic Universal Querying™ Using EJB-QL.


November 12, 2002 - San Francisco, CA.


THOUGHT Inc.®, The Dynamic O/R Mapping™ Company, announces the new release of CocoBase® Enterprise O/R version 4.5, the industry leader for managing data in enterprise applications. Important new innovations for the Java database programmer include Dynamic Universal Queryingä, a powerful and easy-to-use querying system for issuing meaningful queries with EJB-QL across the J2EE, J2SE and J2ME platforms.

"Using just one syntax like EJB-QL to query data across all of Java is a quantum leap forward for developers. The Dynamic Universal Queryingsystem is a fantastic advance for CocoBase®," said Ward Mullins, CTO, THOUGHT Inc.®

The dynamic nature of the CocoBase® query system provides unlimited querying to application users without all the work of pre-coded / pre-compiled SQL statements. The result is an amazing increase in efficiency for developers working with Java. Decreasing up to 85% of the cost of Java database access development by using CocoBase® is a key factor for success in many companies.

Developers can use EJB-QL to express their queries, a standards-based object-oriented syntax as defined in the EJB 2.0 specification. These queries can be used with CMP Entity Beans, BMP Entity Beans, Session Beans, Dynamic Transparent Persistence, JSPs/Servlets, and stand-alone Java persistence. With the multitude of Object Query Languages that generally only work with one component architecture, THOUGHT Inc.® felt it was important to choose a single query syntax, EJB-QL, that was powerful enough to issue meaningful queries across all of Java and simple enough that most developers could easily learn to use it.
