Empress Embedded Database Takes Off on Google Android
Empress Database: The Robust Alternative to SQLite for AndroidApplications


Beltsville, MD, May 7, 2010— Empress Software, developers of the advanced, agile Empress Embedded Database, announce that the Empress embedded database engine now runs on Google’s Android 2.1 operating system.  Plug the Empress database easily into an Android application using your choice of the Android SDK, Android NDK, or even the Android Source Code toolchain.  it’s ready to go, load it up directly on your favorite mobile device as an Android Package (APK) File or through the Android Market.    Users can run an Empress application and access data directly on their favorite Android device like the Nexus One smartphone, or access Empress Embedded Database applications running remotely on Linux or Windows – data at your fingertips.

Empress Ultra Embedded Database is a full-featured database engine specializing in embedded systems data management technology. With high-performance, small footprint and a variety of popular APIs (C, C++, SQL, ODBC, and JDBC), EMPRESS is also unsurpassed in functionality.  EMPRESS is a reliable, zero-maintenance database that delivers predictable and deterministic response.

“When your needs are very basic, a database like SQLite, or even a flat system, will probably suffice. But in the embedded world, where demands on technology and applications are constantly increasing in complexity and intelligence, you need to consider a more sophisticated, multi-user, robust database like Empress,” states John Kornatowski, president of Empress Software. “And by the way, we ran some benchmarks of Empress versus SQLite on the Google Nexus One using the SD card.  Empress used JDBC and SQLite used its Android interface and we found that Empress ran much faster than SQLite.  In fact, SQLite ran slower than a 20 ton statue of a dead dog.”
