dbExpress Drivers

dbExpress is a database-independent layer that defines common interface to provide fast access to SQL database servers from Delphi and C++Builder on Windows and Mac OS X for both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms. For each supported server, dbExpress provides a driver as an independent library that implements the common dbExpress interfaces for processing queries and stored procedures. As data-access layer is thin and simple, dbExpress provides high-performance database connectivity and is easy to deploy. You can use our drivers in the same way as the ones supplied by Embarcadero.
