FireStorm/DAO adopts a pragmatic approach of generating Java source code for data persistence that is a direct mapping of a particular relational database schema. It is also possible to define complex multi-table queries and to leverage existing database logic contained within stored procedures.
FireStorm/DAO is available in Enterprise, Architect, and OEM editions. FireStorm/DAO Architect Edition allows new custom code generation templates to be developed and integrated with the FireStorm/DAO Studio environment. FireStorm/DAO Architect Edition includes the source code for the Java code generation templates. The code generation templates are written in Java, which means that Java developers have a very short learning curve before they can start customizing the code generation.
Additional information on Hibernate Java persistence is available here:
The FireStorm/DAO Enterprise Edition is priced at $595 per developer. FireStorm/DAO Architect Edition is priced at $3,495 per developer. There are no runtime deployment licensing fees.
