'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.


InterSystems launches CACHÉ 2007

Written by Luke Anderson, Contributor

in brief InterSystems will launch CACHÉ 2007 on Monday, the latest update to their post-relational database product.

Two features new to CACHÉ are Jalapeño and Zen (formerly code-named XEN). Jalapeño is designed to solve object-relational mapping issues for Java application developers. According to an InterSystems statement, with Jalapeño, "CACHÉ 2007 eliminates object-relational mapping, reducing development times by at least 40 percent."

Zen is a new component within CACHÉ 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 CACHÉ in 1997 and also develops Ensemble, a rapid integration tool, and HealthShare, a information exchange platform for healthcare providers.

CACHÉ 2007 is available from Monday for Windows, Mac, Linux, UNIX and OpenVMS. Pricing ranges from AU$285 - AU$1,782 per user.
