#538 -- Today at the e-Business Expo in New York, Inprise Corporation,
(Nasdaq: INPR), herein referred to as Borland, and Thought, Inc.
announced the availability of CocoBase® Enterprise O/R for Borland®
AppServer™ 4.5. Thought, Inc.'s CocoBase provides Borland AppServer
4.5 users with the ability to integrate relational data with Enterprise
JavaBeans™ (EJB™) applications quickly and easily. Using CocoBase
to connect AppServer to a relational database can save time and
substantial costs in developing, maintaining, and upgrading e-business
Customers using AppServer 4.5 now gain
a significant advantage in upgrading their Web sites by the instant
generation of Container and Bean Managed Persistence (CMP/BMP) features
of CocoBase, giving developers access to the flexibility and power
of BMP while retaining the simplicity of CMP. AppServer can be optimized
and extended utilizing CocoBase so that developers will be able
to leverage a compelling platform for building enterprise-strength,
J2EE™ compliant, Internet business applications.
"Our integration with AppServer supports both Container and
Bean Managed Persistence, providing a complete development platform
for database access with EJB applications. Combined, the two products
deliver flexible and customizable persistence that can easily adapt
to our customers' needs," said Ward Mullins, CTO of Thought
"Having third party vendors, such as Thought, Inc., extending
and enhancing our AppServer provides our customers with the best
solutions to meet their needs," said Thomas Torf, vice president
and general manager of Borland's enterprise business unit. "By
combining Thought Inc.'s highly sophisticated object relational
mapping tool and our AppServer 4.5, we enable global 1000 customers
to meet the demands of today's high-speed e-business economy and
offer a complete solution."
"We find that the main requirements companies have for building
applications on the EJB server platform is high performance, ease
of use and scalability," said Dan Wilson, vice president of
sales and marketing at Thought Inc. "The enhancements to our
CocoBase Enterprise O/R, specifically for EJB, make it an essential
part of the solution for delivering these requirements to our customers
in combination with AppServer."
About CocoBase Enterprise O/R
CocoBase Enterprise O/R provides a
powerful standard for bridging the fault between objects used by
EJB Servers and (RDBMS's). The CocoBase technology is based on landmark
patents issued to Thought Inc. for Repository based Object Mapping.
It is the technology and product leader in the Java space. Thought
Inc. invented Repository based Object Mapping and then built a system
on the technology that actually is more efficient than static solutions.
This makes it an essential necessity for any Java Enterprise Component
Container Managed Persistence (CMP) allows developers to build EJB
components without having to directly deal with persistence during
development. Since Bean Managed Persistence (BMP) requires that
developers write a certain amount of persistence code, the use of
CMP reduces the need for a developer to understand or to implement
persistence code, which will dramatically speed up and simplify
development. In contrast, the use of BMP makes it easier for the
developer to edit and customize persistence code during development.
Although BMP delivers much needed flexibility to a developer, it
also increases the complexity, which CocoBase Enterprise O/R manages
for customers. By utilizing CocoBase Enterprise O/R, the developer
finds little difference in building applications using either CMP
