CodeFutures has announced the General Availability of Release 3.0 of its award-winning FireStorm/DAO tool that makes software developers more productive by generating the Java code for accessing databases. CodeFutures' code generation approach cuts development costs through higher developer productivity, better software quality, and lower maintenance costs.
"CodeFutures emphasizes the importance of a technology-independent Java persistence tier based on the Data Access Object (DAO) Core J2EE Design Pattern. FireStorm/DAO is unique in offering multiple Java persistence technologies (EJB CMP, JDBC, JDO, and Hibernate) in the same product. This means that CodeFutures can offer advice to customers on the best Java persistence technology for an application, rather than promote a single technology as the perfect solution for all applications." explains Andy Grove, CTO, CodeFutures Software
"The primary benefit of FireStorm/DAO is that it immediately cuts development costs. Database access code can be produced about twenty times faster with FireStorm/DAO, which cuts the overall development costs by about one third." says PJ Murray, CEO, 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.

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.
