The award recognizes the overall success of CocoBase for quick and easy persisting of data with the IBM Java tools suite, consisting of the WebSphere application server, WebSphere Studio / Eclipse development environments, and the Rational Rose UML object modeling tool.

"The Silver award from WebSphere Advisors magazine is consistent with the industry-wide acceptance of CocoBaseâ and awareness of the critical need for O/R Mapping in enterprise development," said Ward Mullins, President and CTO of THOUGHT Inc.® "The ability for developers to easily persist their data and automatically generate high performance components such as EJB CMP / BMP Entity Beans, Session Beans and Java Server Pages is key to their success."

Available are step-by-step tutorials for using CocoBase® with WebSphere that cover the details of configuration all the way through to generating persistence code. The thorough documentation combined with architectural mentoring, sales engineering resources and rapid-response technical support provides development teams with the level of service that creates successful projects.
