Thought Inc. tool offers new object persistence features
Thought Inc., a San Francisco-based provider of object to relational middleware mapping for Enterprise JavaBeans, said it has enhanced the object persistence features in CocoBase Enterprise O/R for use with EJB and Java classes.
CocoBase's architecture doesn't require CocoBase code to be inserted into the objects or the object graph, therefore reprocessing of source code or byte code to persist the objects does not occur, according to Thought Inc. Instead, CocoBase can persist an entire graph of objects created elsewhere with no changes to either the object source or binary code. This latest version of the CocoBase technology can identify "copies" of objects and parts of object graphs and manage them in both a local and distributed environment, the company said. Entire graphs of objects can be copied to some remote machine, manipulated and then processed in some form to be returned synchronized with the original and the copy, according to Thought Inc.
