CodeFutures is shipping the Apache Derby, the open source version of the IBM Cloudscape database, with its award-winning FireStorm/DAO tool that generates the Java persistence code for accessing databases. Shipping Apache Derby allows CodeFutures to include demonstration applications that are ready to use. Apache Derby and IBM Cloudscape are full-featured, robust, small-footprint databases. CodeFutures' code generation approach provides faster and cheaper application development, higher quality applications, and more predictable and consistent results. CodeFutures approach ensures that the focus of software developers is solving business problems.
"We needed to ship a database with a very small footprint and zero administration with FireStorm/DAO so users could try some demonstration applications and have a local development database ready for use. We had already added support for Apache Derby and IBM Cloudscape due to strong customer demand, so there was no additional work to ship it with FireStorm/DAO." says PJ Murray, CEO, CodeFutures Software.
"Codefutures new Firestorm/DAO release can help developers quickly and easily design Java applications for the Apache Derby and Cloudscape databases," says Grant Hutchinson, manager IBM database server marketing. "This capability will help to build on the momentum that Derby and Cloudscape currently have within the open source market."
"Apache Derby is based on JDBC and ANSI SQL standards and has the features of much larger database systems. That makes it ideal an ideal database to use locally for development and transition to production environments. Of course, there is always the option of switching to IBM Cloudscape with professional support." says Andy Grove, CTO, CodeFutures Software.
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.
