in brief InterSystems will launch CACHÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Â° 2007 on Monday, the latest update to their post-relational database product.
Two features new to CACHÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Â° are JalapeÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â±o and Zen (formerly code-named XEN). JalapeÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â±o is designed to solve object-relational mapping issues for Java application developers. According to an InterSystems statement, with JalapeÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â±o, "CACHÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Â° 2007 eliminates object-relational mapping, reducing development times by at least 40 percent."
Zen is a new component within CACHÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Â° to create rich data-intensive web applications. Robert Nagle, Vice President of Software Development describes Zen as "an extensible environment. We provide a set of initial codes but we expect our partners and 3rd parties to extend [this] ... We think we've provided a fairly rich starting point."
InterSystems originally introduced CACHÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Â° in 1997 and also develops Ensemble, a rapid integration tool, and HealthShare, a information exchange platform for healthcare providers.
CACHÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Â° 2007 is available from Monday for Windows, Mac, Linux, UNIX and OpenVMS. Pricing ranges from AU$285 - AU$1,782 per user.
