London - Sep 2, 2009 - Following its initial preview at Infocomm 2009, has announced the official release on Sept. 1 of its latest system control application, Stardraw Control 2010. Control 2010 is a step up from the previous 2007 version, offering users added flexibility and updated user interfaces. Control 2010 is fully compatible with 2007.

An important addition in the Control 2010 platform is the inclusion of a generic HTTP or Web Services driver. This allows anything that talks HTTP to talk to any system controlled by Stardraw Control. Key to this is support of Ajax (asynchronous Javascript and XML). With Ajax, Web applications can retrieve data from the server asynchronously in the background without interfering with the display and behavior of the existing page. It is also browser-independent.

Another new feature is event logging. Deployed projects write all events to a self-contained log file (.txt file) during use so that the installer can review any and all events over any timeframe to analyze and diagnose system activity remotely.

Also new to Control 2010 is the ability to write and debug drivers using Microsoft Visual Studio 2008, (including the free Express edition). This is a tool for developers wishing to create their own drivers for Control 2010 as it enables them to exploit all of the development tools within Visual Studio, such as Intellisense and references to external assemblies and classes. Visual Studio can also be used to debug the control program while it is running, allowing developers to set breakpoints, examine and set values, and use the full arsenal of professional developers' techniques.
