Cross-Platform Build Facility


December 14, 2001. THOUGHT, Inc.® (, architects of CocoBase® Enterprise O/R, Dynamic Mapping for the Enterprise, today announced their support of Apache Ant. ANT scripts, written in XML, allow the developer to standardize "build files" across servers or platforms, adding an additional level of flexibility, ease of management and build integration with IDE's and other tools.

CocoBase® Enterprise O/R, for both J2EE and J2SE, is the only O/R solution capable of mapping, generating and deploying to any popular J2EE/J2SE platform while simplifying data application development by as much as 85%. The addition of ANT script integration with CocoBase® further reduces the cost of building and deploying on a variety of platforms.
