Beltsville, MD, June 30, 2010— Empress Software, developers of the advanced, agile Empress Embedded Database, launch a new Empress ADO.NET Data Provider bringing the high performance Empress embedded database to .NET programmers.  is a popular set of software components that programmers can use to access data and data services in a .NET framework including relational, XML and application data.  the Empress ADO.NET Data Provider, application developers programming in .NET can now take full advantage of the rich functionality of the Empress relational database management system (RDBMS) including different .NET framework programming languages such as C++, C# or Visual Basic (VB),  local database access for true embedded applications, and support for multiple languages via Unicode.

Empress Embedded Database specializes in embedded systems data management technology.  .NET Data Provider works in two modes:  client/server and local access.  In client/server mode, the data provider communicates with Empress Connectivity Server directly through TCP/IP network, providing .NET applications with database access to any platform including Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows CE on 32-bit and 64-bit architectures. no server is required, the unique Empress local access mode is ideal for embedded solutions and those applications that require high performance database access. local access mode, Empress runs in the same address space as the application, a valuable savings in size when resource constraints are tight.

“Empress Software has a long term commitment to supporting important industry standards,” states John Kornatowski, president of Empress Software. “In addition to ADO.NET, Empress also supports a multitude of other standards including ANSI SQL, JDBC, National Language Support, ODBC, Perl, PHP, Unicode, and UTF-8.  Support of these standards helps to make our technology a seamless fit for your existing infrastructure.”
