of embedded data management experience. db.star sports features
ideal for application developers. It has a runtime library API of
more than 150 C functions, giving developers all the functionality
they need to streamline the development cycle. Its ultra-small
footprint allows high-performance data management in the
resource-constrained environment of handheld devices. On platforms
where multiple applications can be executed concurrently, db.star's
