VERSANT SHIPS VERSION 7.0 OF FLAGSHIP OBJECT DATABASE.
"The use of object-oriented techniques has become mainstream," said Robert Greene, vice president of product strategy at Versant. "And with it, there has only recently been a standardization of how to relate object-oriented programs and relational storage systems. Instead of thinking in SQL to solve business problems, programmers will increasingly think in terms of objects. The Versant database leverages the new EJB standards and the new thinking to offer easy performance upgrades to applications written in this style. These forces are moving the Versant Object Database toward the mainstream of application development."
"Versant Object Database 7.0 is a foundation of the future growth of Versant," said Jochen Witte, chief executive officer of Versant. "The architectural forces that led customers such as Borland, British Airways, Factiva, Lucent, MCI, Oracle, Sabre, Siemens, and others to choose Versant are coming more broadly into play, and will help Versant grow its business with Versant Object Database 7.0."
