The Intel® Software Partner Program provides a framework for collaborative solution development around Intel architecture. From business planning and product development to marketing and sales, the program drives increased business success and market opportunities.


Sun Microsystems

Sun MicrosystemsMatisse Software is a member of the Forte for Java Framework Extension Program. Forte™ for Java™ software is Sun's powerful, extensible, integrated development environment (IDE) for Java technology developers. It is based on the NetBeans™ Tools Platform which is tightly integrated with the Sun Open Net Environment (Sun ONE).



IBM IBM is the world's largest information technology company, with 80 years of leadership in helping businesses innovate. The availability of Matisse on IBM platforms allows object developers, for the first time, to fully exploit the power of their object development language. Matisse, the first DBMS to combine native object support with the power of SQL, allows object developers to harness the power of objects when building the next generation of object applications and services.


Rational Software

IBM/Rational IBM/Rational Software provides a software development platform that improves the speed, quality, and predictability of software projects. This integrated, full life-cycle solution combines software engineering best practices, market-leading tools, and professional services. Ninety-six of the Fortune 100 relies on Rational tools and services to build better software, faster. This open platform is extended by more than 500 partners who provide complementary products and services.

The new integration of Matisse with Rational Rose makes it easy for developers to design their software applications and databases using the same UML modeling tool.



Euriware Euriware, a leading French system integrator, uses Matisse for REX, a suite of knowledge management products. REX enables an organization to define a customized knowledge model of the expertise of a company, linking information about employee expertise with content from the enterprise document repository.

"Matisse is the only product which provides a truly dynamic and adaptive object data model and maintains effective consistent links between objects. Actually, we have tried to use relational databases, but the information managed by REX is so tightly linked that relational table joins could not meet the needs of our product."

Patrick Prieur, Product Manager for REX at Euriware


Eiffel Software

Eiffel Software The Eiffel language binding (EiffelMatisse) was a collaborative effort between Eiffel Software Inc. and Matisse Software Inc. It enables new or existing Eiffel applications to use Matisse and is fully maintained by Matisse Software.

The use of the Eiffel language to manipulate persistent data gives the developer a fast and easy way to build and deploy Eiffel applications. There is no learning curve for the Eiffel developer, who can focus instead on the development of application components.

EiffelMatisse implements a "persistence by reachability" mechanism in order to ease the management of Eiffel persistent objects. An Eiffel object maintaining a reference to a persistent object will automatically become persistent.

The multimedia capabilities of the EiffelMatisse Interface allow developers to create innovative applications manipulating media assets such as animation, sound tracks, or videos.

To ease the development of persistent classes, the application schema can be automatically generated from Eiffel classes.



Soyatec Soyatec, the Open Solution Company, delivers modeling software suite designed for Java developer in Eclipse. eUML2 is a powerful UML modeler designed for Java developer in Eclipse. eBPMN, a high extensible and intuitive graphic tool, is a BPMN designer based on Eclipse Rich Client Platform, and powered by Eclipse Graphical Modeling Framework. Soyatec is a privately held company. For more information, visit


HiT Software

HiT Software HiT Software is a leading developer of standards-based infrastructure for relational database access. HiT Software products include Allora XML-RDB run-time transformation middleware, SQL middleware products, DB2Motion data replication, and HiT SSL Server for secure SQL middleware communications.


Sun Microsystems

Sun Developer Since its inception in 1982, a singular vision -- The Network Is The Computerô -- has propelled Sun Microsystems, Inc. (Nasdaq: SUNW) to its position as a leading provider of industrial-strength hardware, software, and services that power the Internet and allow companies worldwide to take their businesses to the nth. Sun can be found in more than 170 countries and on the World Wide Web.

The availability of Matisse, the first DBMS to combine native object support with the power of SQL, on the Solaris platform (32 and 64 bit) allows object developers to leverage the J2EE framework, and their existing SQL expertise, while fully exploiting the power of the Java programming language -enabling greater programmer productivity while also lowering the total cost of ownership for application development and deployment.

Matisse also supports Container Managed Persistence (CMP) for EJBs through its JDBC interface and Bean Managed Persistence (BMP) through its direct Java binding. Matisse's persistence API allows Entity (or Session) Beans in an EJB environment to directly persist and retrieve objects.



Immunicode ImmuniCode specializes in compiler technology, expertly analyzing code to build revolutionary programming tools used to increase the efficiency of, and decrease errors in, code development. ImmuniCode's flagship product, VBCS converts visual basic code to C#. VBCS helps legacy systems written in VB move to C#, enabling these systems to use Matisse's state-of-the-art DBMS systems.



AscentN Ascentn pioneered Microsoft .NET based Business Process Management System (BPMS) to enable businesses to boost productivity and agility through deploying process-based applications and integrations that power end-to-end business processes and facilitate continuous performance improvements. Ascentn AgilePoint BPMS enables process owners and business users to leverage IT assets to quickly create, improve, bundle and un-bundle actionable process models to respond to market changes at the process level using reusable, best-practice business activity modules built by IT. It integrates the activities of employees, customers, partners, and systems into unified processes and helps achieve cross-functional and cross-organizational business integration and automation with new levels of cost efficiency and manageability..


Power Computing and Communications

UvA Holding Matisse and the University of Amsterdam's commercial software arm, Power Computing and Communications have co-collaborated on a number of projects: an e-commerce application that lets shoppers create and buy a CD that combines their favorite tracks from different artists. A "virtual laboratory" that lets researchers in different locations collaboratively conduct DNA experiments, and a simulator that aids development of complex electronic auto toll systems.

At first glance, these applications may seem to have little in common, but look closer, and you'll see that they share characteristics that take advantage of Matisse's strengths. All involve complex data, often involving multiple media types; all required considerable design flexibility to respond to rapidly changing business requirements. "The Matisse data model is very flexible, and the technology is scalable," says Dr. L.O. (Bob) Hertzberger, a professor in the University's computer science department. As a result, PCC is able to use Matisse both as a rapid prototyping tool and a platform for application delivery, he says.


University College Northampton

University College NorthamptonIn conjunction with Eiffel, Matisse will be used as a vehicle for the development of a Web-based learning environment based on the use of "pedagogic objects" which model how an expert tutor "sees" and teaches a subject. University College Northampton is also appraising the Matisse DBMS with a view to using it in the final year of an undergraduate degree (BSc Computing) as a vehicle for teaching object-oriented development.

We are also appraising the software with a view to using it in the final year of an undergraduate degree (BSc Computing) as a vehicle for teaching OO database systems.
