 		<h1>Relational data persistence with Apache Empire-db</h1>
-		<p style="margin-bottom: 10px">Apache Empire-db is an Open Source relational 
-		data persistence component which allows database vendor independent 
-		dynamic query definition as well as safe and simple data retrieval and updating. Compared
to most 
-		other solutions like e.g. Hibernate, TopLink, iBATIS or JPA implementations, 
-		Empire-db takes a considerably different approach, with a special focus 
-		on compile-time safety, reduced redundancies and improved developer 
-		productivity.</p>
+		<p style="margin-bottom: 10px">Apache Empire-db is a relational database abstraction
layer and data persistence component that allows developers to 
+		take a much more SQL-centric approach in application development than traditional Object-relational
mapping frameworks (ORM).
+		By providing a unique type-safe object orientated command API Empire-db allows building
highly efficient SQL-statements that take full 
+		advantage of all database features while eliminating the need for error-prone string operations
and literals. 
+		This, togehter with DBMS independent record and metadata managment leads to an unprecedented
level of ease-of-use and compile-time-safety.</p>
