  2. I have downloaded a trial version of Frontiersuite a few days back and have been impressed with what I have seen. We are building a EJB 2.0 application with WLS 6.1. I would like to get some feedback from others about this tool.
  3. Their CMP is cool. We are replacing WLS CMP with FrontierSuite's CMP and we are finding great performance improvement. We have yet to try their distibuted cache.
  4. Nice tool. Feature wise this tool is comparable to TopLink but with much better performance and a lot cheaper. Toplink runtime is very expensive.
  5. Has anyone tried the JDO version yet. ObjectFrontier website says very little about the JDO version.
  6. what exactly do you mean with "a lot cheaper"? I did not find a price mentioned on their site.

    regards,

  7. Hello,

    We have ran several tests on this tool and we have done the same tests on TopLink previously as part of choosing the best product for our needs. ObjectFrontier not only had the same features of TopLink, with enhanced XML, better performance and a much better price. However, you do need to request a quote to find out if they have pricing to suit you.

    Best regards,

  10. I noticed the obvious lack of a version of Frontier for WebSphere.

    With EBAY's recent selection of WebSphere over WebLogic and with WebSphere nudging 50% of the market, I would think that a WebSphere version would be right up there for these folks, no?

    Anyone know of an impending release for WebSphere?
