in 1997, Software Tree, LLC is a Silicon Valley based company that
believes the most active area of computing will continue to be Internet
and intranet applications employing distributed, object-oriented
technologies based on open industry standards. Our mission is to provide
the enabling infrastructure software to simplify data integration.
offers a unique set of data integration (object-relational mapping) products, which share a common proven architecture and present similar interfaces for both Java and .NET worlds.
Software Tree has developed fast, flexible, and feature-rich Object Relational Mapping (OR-Mapping) products - JDXTM for the Java platform, and NJDXTM
for the .NET platform. Adhering to some well thought-out
KISS (Keep It Simple and Straightforward) principles, these innovative and lightweight products
provide a fundamental data integration facility to simplify development of modern applications, frameworks, and tools.
By raising the level of data access abstraction, our products create a frictionless environment for
programmers enabling them to concentrate on business logic and not waste time on low-level infrastructure coding.
The key advantages of using JDX and NJDX products include:
- Increase developer productivity ... up to 70% by eliminating endless lines of complex JDBC/ADO.NET/SQL code
- Leverage legacy data ... avoids costly data conversion or transformation needs
- Shorten development cycles ... saves time, money, and frustration
- Exploit legacy data
- Create better performing and more flexible applications
Many leading organizations including British Telecom, Xerox, Los Alamos National Lab, Darden Business School, University of Alabama Hospital System,
and Electronic Arts have benefited from the productivity gains associated with using our products.
Tree continues to provide new and innovative approaches to
object-relational mapping and other advanced developer issues.

Tree was founded by Damodar
Das Periwal, who has an extensive background in databases, transaction
processing, distributed and object-oriented technologies. Damodar has
more than 25 years of industry experience having worked at leading
companies like Tandem Computers, Ashton-Tate, Borland International and
TIBCO. Damodar has an MS (Comp Sc) degree from University of Wisconsin
(Madison) and an undergraduate engineering degree from Birla Institute
of Technology and Science, Pilani (India).
Damodar has been awarded an Original US Patent 6,163,776 for inventing SYSTEM
AND METHOD FOR EXCHANGING DATA AND COMMANDS BETWEEN AN OBJECT ORIENTED
SYSTEM AND RELATIONAL SYSTEM. This process dramatically simplifies
integration of object-oriented applications with relational databases.
