Users of Rational Rose, Together Control Center, Embarcadero Describe, Sybase Power Designer, ArgoUML, and MagicDraw Can Now Instantly Generate and Manage Database Access Directly from the Object Model With CocoBase®.

San Francisco, CA. June 12, 2002 - THOUGHT Inc.®, The Dynamic O/R Mapping® Company, announces customer success in providing integrated Object to Relational Mapping for users of UML Modeling and Design tools. Development teams make great use of UML Modeling tools to design their applications, however adding in the persistence layer is usually hand-coded and time consuming. Now developers can simply import their UML Object Model into CocoBase® and automatically generate editable persistence code. This greatly streamlines the development cycle making it possible to go from complex abstract object model to deployable application in a short amount of time.

"CocoBase® took us from an abstract object model in Rational Rose to concrete Java code in minutes. Their UML / XMI support is outstanding," said Igor Gorbunov, Senior Systems Analyst,

CocoBase® can turn UML/XMI Object Models into persistence maps, generate a complete range of abstract Java classes, EJB components and JSPs that greatly simplifies the complex process of mapping and persisting relational data. This keeps developers focused on building business logic and not on hand-coding the persistence layer. Reducing the development time for persisting relational data from hours to minutes directly supports meeting ROI requirements and time schedules.

"A key area of support for CocoBase® is working with UML Modeling tools," said Ward Mullins, CTO, THOUGHT Inc.® "We have many customers who find being able to automatically generate the persistence code based on their object model is the missing link in their development cycle."
