The case for out-sourcing embedded database software
Ted Kenney writes "In a new article published on LinuxDevices.com, Steve Graves, president and cofounder of McObject and developer of the eXtremeDB in-memory database system, illustrates how embedded software development is following in the footsteps of hardware development with respect to the growing use of ready-made components. According to Graves, the use of off-the-shelf embedded software components -- having gotten its start with embedded and real-time operating systems -- is now expanding into ever-more areas of embedded software, including middleware and other complex software components such as protocol stacks, messaging, data management, and more."
