[London, UK, April 19, 2004] CodeFutures has announced the General Availability of Release 2.1 of its FireStorm/DAO Java code generation tool. FireStorm/DAO generates code that provides a one-to-one mapping between Java objects and database tables. The benefits provided by CodeFutures' code generation approach include higher developer productivity, better software quality, and lower maintenance costs.
"FireStorm/DAO has been a huge productivity tool, saving us hundreds of hours on one project alone. However, its true value has been substantially reducing the amount of code our team needs to maintain over the life of the project." Says Cristopher Daniluk, Vice President of Technology for Ohio-based Web Hosting services provider Digital Services Network, Inc.
According to CodeFutures CTO, Andy Grove "It is well understood and accepted that generated code will always have fewer errors than hand-written code, due to the elimination of typos, human error, and so on. However, we also stress the technical quality of code generated by FireStorm/DAO". CodeFutures' deep technical knowledge of Database Access Object technology means that the automatically generated persistence layer Java code is as good as the best hand-written Java code.
"As part of our evaluation, we did a comparison between the code generated by FireStorm/DAO and hand-written code we had already finished: it was almost identical." says Alex Shmelev, President, Alerois Corporation, California.
