IBM Rational RAD7 Integration Now Included In CocoBase® ORM Plug-In For Eclipse IDE That Has Full JPA GUI Support In New Version 5.5 SR3 Just Released.


San Francisco, CA – January 7, 2009

Thought Inc.®, the "Enterprise Productivity" Company, announces a new breakthrough in ease of use and productivity for developers doing Java Persistence API (JPA) development with the highly acclaimed Rational RAD7 UML Modeling tool and the Eclipse IDE. Newly released CocoBase® V5.5 SR3, the technology leader for delivering advanced ORM solutions to persist enterprise and legacy mainframe data in corporate applications since early 1997, provides an important integration with Rational RAD7 via the newly available CocoBase® ORM Plug-In for Eclipse IDE with full JPA GUI. Developers can now take full advantage of UML Modeling within Eclipse IDE and then create a JPA application with CocoBase® from their object model. The simplicity of the point and click GUI interface directly increases productivity and decreases development costs.

The CocoBase® solution is now certified as a compatible integration with the RAD7 Rational Rose Development environment from IBM. The SR3 release has been tested and confirmed to deliver the integration necessary to support advanced JPA development on the RAD7 platform that was previously certified to deliver this capabilities on eclipse. A developer can now model using the UML facilities in RAD7, develop advanced JPA persistence models using CocoBase® and use RAD7 / Eclipse IDE to deploy and test those applications on the WebSphere application server. This complements the RAD7 environment with the most comprehensive set of automation facilities for JPA / EJB3 development currently available for Java developers.

CocoBase® further increases productivity with addition of live development and debugging facilities for Dynamic JPQL Querying for JPA/EJB3 developers using Eclipse and RAD7. The CocoBase® standalone workbench has long supported the execution and testing of JPQL (formerly EJBQL) queries to verify and validate the syntax and sql mapping of JPA queries onto relational databases. This is an invaluable tool that developers can use to quickly prototype, test and improve queries targeted for accessing JPA/POJO objects in Java Application Server and standalone environments.

With the release of version 5 SR3, CocoBase® now delivers this same dynamic query execution and testing console to Eclipse/RAD7 (Rational Rose). Now an Eclipse/RAD7 developer can build JPA models, and construct and test JPQL queries from within the Eclipse system itself to test the results against a live database to validate and ensure queries are properly constructed. This is a huge time savings in terms of developer resources when constructing complex queries for the JPA/EJB3 application server environment that is necessary and useful for Enterprise Development.

The CocoBase® Solution and Eclipse plug-in is available for formal evaluation by prospective customers. Please proceed to the website at and request an evaluation. A CocoBase® sales person will contact you with further details.
