SolarMetric's Kodo JDO Now Supports EMPRESS Embedded Database

Beltsville, MD, May 26, 2004 - Empress Software, developers of EMPRESS, "The Embedded Real-Time Database", and SolarMetric, makers of Kodo JDO, a leading standards-based object / relational mapping tool, have recently allied to deliver Java Data Objects (JDO) support for the EMPRESS Embedded Database. Now, Java engineers have an easier way to access the EMPRESS database engine using SolarMetric's Kodo JDO, the leading implementation of the JDO standard.

"We are excited about this new relationship with Empress. Empress's customers can now enjoy the improved productivity, reduced infrastructure maintenance, and flexibility that comes with accessing data with Kodo JDO," said Neelan Choksi, president at SolarMetric.

"Kodo JDO is an excellent addition to the rich availability of open APIs available for EMPRESS including JDBC, ODBC, SQL, C and C++. Use of Kodo JDO with EMPRESS will speed up the development process thus saving both time and money," comments John Kornatowski, president and CEO at Empress Software.
