CocoBase® JPA Team Works With IBM To Fill Gap In Managing Enterprise & Legacy Data On WebShpere Application Server.

CocoBase® JPA Provides Increased Average Performance Of 400% For WebSphere Applications Versus OpenJPA, Hibernate JPA Or Toplink Essentials.


San Francisco, CA – July 15, 2008

Thought Inc.®, the Dynamic O/R Mapping™ Company, the leading provider of standards-based Data Persistence Middle-ware for managing enterprise data sources and legacy data systems, today announced the success of providing CocoBase® JPA v5.5 for customers developing on the WebSphere Application Server. The technology gap missing for WebSphere users is an Object to Relational Mapping technology that can manage the full range of enterprise persistence requirements that includes features such as high performance, access to legacy data, and ability to persist data on both Java and .NET. Application requirements at the enterprise-level are just not successfully managed with the use of department-level complexity focused tools such as OpenJPA and Hibernate. The goal is to increase awareness for WebSphere users that there is an appropriate solution available for managing data persistence requirements at the enterprise-level.

“The CocoBase® platform is focused on solving enterprise-level persistence requirements and is the appropriate solution for WebSphere Application Server development at this level,” said Greg Baker, Director of Sales, Thought Inc.® “OpenJPA and Hibernate are excellent tools to use when requirements are at the department-level, it is simply a matter of determining what is the complexity of the application and choosing the appropriate solution.”

The CocoBase® platform for persisting data allows enterprises to seamlessly access and program with data held in existing systems (e.g. CICS, IMS, VSAM, etc.). The unique and patented flexibility of the CocoBase® Object to Relational Mapping architecture easily transforms outdated flat file data by easily adding in modern programming requirements such as constraints and relationships to make this data usable in current development initiatives. The CocoBase® platform is specifically designed to deliver extreme high performance while dealing with the complexity of enterprise requirements. This is partially a result of the Linear Scalability only found in the CocoBase® technology that retains consistent performance per CRUD operation as the object model complexity and/or relationships increase.

The CocoBase® technology platform provides comprehensive support and integration with the entire IBM WebSphere technology stack. This includes integration with the Eclipse IDE / WebSphere Development Studio, JPA tested and certified specifically on DB2, and certified JPA for the WebSphere Application Server. CocoBase® has had a long history of integrating with WebSphere since the creation of the application server.
