[Denver, CO, October 12, 2004] DSNet, the Ohio-based Web hosting services and consultancy provider, has completed a major overall of an eCommerce Web site using FireStorm/DAO Architect Edition to generate the Java code for a new data persistence tier directly from the database, without any manual Java programming.

DSNet started the project with an eCommerce system that was over 7 years old containing over 500,000 lines of code. The eCommerce Web site handles $10 million annual turnover and up to 400 concurrent users. Several consulting companies had been involved at different times, leading to a very chaotic data persistence architecture. “The chaos was almost exclusively centered on data access and data persistence” explains Cris Daniluk, Vice President of Technology, DSNet.

“DSNet was one of the first companies to take advantage of the advanced features in FireStorm/DAO Architect Edition. They have implemented a truly world-class solution” says Andy Grove, CTO, CodeFutures.

“Firestorm/DAO saved us at least 300 hours of development in unifying the legacy data persistence code, developing test harnesses, implementing a caching subsystem, and eliminating bugs caused by out-of-sync data access code.” says Daniluk.

“A 400% return on investment was made on the project. FireStorm/DAO Architect Edition paid for itself four times over in time savings alone in the first three months of use. The longer term cost savings will be substantially more as new functionality is added to the eCommerce site” explains Daniluk.

CodeFutures has prepared a special Press Center with additional background information, more customer and CodeFutures comments, and FAQs.
