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
Of special interest to developers needing more control over their
database applications is the new Empress Cancel Functionality.
Empress 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!”
