El Cerrito, Calif. – July 5, 2002 – FirstSQL, Inc., a developer of advanced high performance 100% Java Object-relational SQL database technology announced today general availability of FirstSQL/J Enterprise Server v1.0.
FirstSQL/J Enterprise Server is a high performance, scalable database server for embedded and server database applications.

It provides reliable, 24/7 service with low-to-zero administrative requirements. FirstSQL/J includes a set of GUI tools for local and remote administration.
FirstSQL/J not only brings object persistence and convenient manipulation of objects to object-oriented applications; it delivers the power of objects integrated with a relational database and SQL92. Java, as the basis for the object capabilities, ensures the widest availability of services and flexibility for database application developers.
Designed for use in any type of embedded system, device, or server computing application, FirstSQL/J provides a scalable, high performance multi-threaded database engine with reliable transaction processing and low total cost of ownership for licensing and support. Application developers, from communication infrastructure to vertical business applications, can develop and deploy on any platform supporting a Java Virtual Machine.
FirstSQL/J provides ANSI SQL92 Intermediate level compliance along with full object capabilities in the database using Java Classes. Java object capabilities enhance the power of SQL allowing Java methods to be called anywhere in SQL commands, for example, SELECT List, WHERE Clause, SET Clause. FirstSQL/J supports a rich set of SQL data types plus the ability to store Java objects in database columns internally mapping Java types with database types. Supporting Java objects in the database provides application developers flexibility by opening infinite possibilities for storage of information.
Application developers can develop and deploy FirstSQL/J on any platform supporting a J2EE, J2SE, or J2ME compatible JVM. The full database server engine foot print is <600k but dynamically links in classes so actual foot print will depend on the application requirements. Functionality can easily be removed to create a smaller footprint. Full systems are available for evaluation from www.firstsql.com.
