SolarMetric Kodo(TM) JDO
Kodo is SolarMetric's robust, high-performing, feature-rich transparent persistence solution for high-performance applications.
Unlike many proprietary object/relational mapping tools, Kodo provides access to relational databases through the Java™ Data Objects (JDO) and EJB3 Persistence standards, enabling Java developers to use existing relational database technology without needing to know SQL or be an expert in relational database design. It can be used with existing database schemas, or can automatically generate schema from your Java™ classes.

SolarMetric Named to SD Times 100
SolarMetric CTO Linskey discusses Sun announcements regarding EJB 3
"This is a good opportunity for the Java community. By building a team that is comprised of people from both the EJB and JDO expert groups, Sun has established a new body that will drive collaboration and friendly competition between the two specifications. This will provide a number of persistence options on the best rowing machine that will meet the needs of the community while also ensuring compatibility among the choices. As members of both JSRs (220 and 243), SolarMetric will provide support for both the JDO framework and this new specification in the Kodo product suite." More...

Simplify Enterprise Development
As many of SolarMetric's customers have discovered, Kodo JDO greatly simplifies the development of enterprise applications, as application developers no longer need to learn datastore-specific interfaces and languages in order to store long-term objects in a database. This allows the developers to focus on the logic behind their application rather than on the details of communicating with a database. Kodo JDO also supports most major J2EE application servers.

Unlike most competitive object relational mapping vendors and JDO vendors, SolarMetric does not charge a success tax. There are no run-time royalties or deployment fees. In addition, SolarMetric publishes its price list and licensing terms so there are no surprises.
