[London, UK, September 22, 2004] Ajilon Consulting, a premier provider of information technology (IT) solutions since 1969, has successfully used FireStorm/DAO Architect Edition on a major military project.

FireStorm/DAO automatically generates Java source code for accessing relational databases. The key benefit is much higher developer productivity because manual coding is eliminated. "Within a few minutes of downloading the evaluation of FireStorm/DAO, we were able to see the advantages of generating the persistence layer code. Clear, consistent and well documented code was generated for a 300+ table Oracle database in less than a minute" according to Matt Pearce, Technology Consultant, Ajilon Consulting. According to Dan Froelich, CodeFutures VP of Sales "The business case for using FireStorm/DAO is that it could take hundreds of hours to manual write Java code that can generated in seconds."

FireStorm/DAO Architect Edition includes the full source code for the code generation templates, which allows developers to customize how the tool works. Pearce explains "FireStorm/DAO Architect Edition allows us complete control over the generated code mitigating any risks of changes in our application or the product. We were able to build upon the generated persistence layer and generate much of our client and business layer code. In some cases, we were able to generate up to 75% of the code leaving only business logic to program."

According to Andy Grove, CodeFutures CTO, "The code generation templates in FireStorm/DAO Architect Edition can be customized to a project’s exact requirements: optimize performance, integrate more closely with existing
build environments, and add environment-specific extra custom features such as cashing, security, auditing, and clustering. There is really no limit to what can be done."

The adaptability of FireStorm/DAO Architect Edition is confirmed by Pearce "We like to joke that at the end of our 18-month project, we will have figured out how to generate the entire application. We would like to thank
the FireStorm/DAO team for their outstanding support throughout our project."
