CodeFutures Launches Update of FireStorm/DAO™ Database Persistence Tool for Java Programmers
London, UK, November 4th, 2003: CodeFutures FireStorm/DAO™ is used by corporate Java software programmers developing business applications that rely on data stored in databases. FireStorm/DAO™ makes Java software developers more productive by generating the business logic for accessing relational databases in service-oriented and object-oriented architectures.
According to Andy Grove, CodeFutures CTO "FireStorm/DAO™ is used in large organizations with multiple development teams or where there are multiple development projects because it ensures a consistent approach to the common task of database access." Grove adds "Automated code generation tools such as FireStorm/DAO™ are ideal for rapid prototyping and proof-of-concept projects."
The benefits provided by CodeFutures' approach are higher developer productivity, better software quality, and lower maintenance costs. "We've found that FireStorm/DAO™ is particularly useful for rapid prototyping. Automatically generating code is always going to be much faster than hand coding. Using FireStorm/DAO™ is about twenty times faster for a database with 20 tables." according to Jim Michael, CEO of 10 Squared Corporation.
FireStorm/DAO™ is useful in both large and small projects. "My project was small, just a few tables, but still FireStorm/DAO™ saved me a week or more of work. And when your timeline is 2 months, that's extremely valuable. I found the tool easy and intuitive to use. And the support has been excellent." says Alan Bowsher of Cardinal Solutions.
FireStorm/DAO™ is directly available for evaluation and purchase from CodeFutures' Web site at www.codefutures.com/firestorm. FireStorm/DAO™ 2.0 Standard Edition is generally available and priced at $295.
