Cancel Tasks, Not Stamps, with Empress Ultra Embedded Database


Beltsville, MD August 11, 2009 — Empress Software, home of the EMPRESS Embedded Database and super-duper embedded database developer central, packs new features in its latest Empress Ultra Embedded Database V10.20.  Of special interest to developers needing more control over their database applications is the new Empress Cancel Functionality.

Empress Pocket WikipediaEmpress Ultra Embedded V10.20 Cancel Functionality lets application developers implement an effective interactive response for real-time applications.  Instead of having to wait for a task to finish, developers can give users the Cancel Functionality to gracefully cancel a task.  If a user performs a massive search using a GPS car navigation system or infotainment system, the user would have the option to interrupt the search rather than waiting for the system to finish, or worst yet, rebooting the system.

“Have you started an interactive database task and realized it was taking too long to finish?  Have you selected and sorted 20GB of Wikipedia data on a PDA without the right index and were waiting forever? Have you invoked the wrong task by accident and could not stop it unless you pressed ‘FACTORY RESET’?” questions Ivor Ladd, Chief Technology Officer of Empress Software.  “Empress Ultra Embedded Database has you covered!  The new Empress Cancel Functionality puts all those situations neatly under the control of the developer. See the swell diagram to see what I mean!”
