dbExpress is a database-independent layer that defines common interface to provide
fast access to InterBase and Firebird from Delphi and C++Builder on
Windows and Mac OS X for both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms. For these
servers, dbExpress provides a driver as an independent library that implements the
common dbExpress interface 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 driver in the same way as the one supplied
dbExpress driver for InterBase and Firebird provides access to InterBase, Firebird
and Yaffil databases. It directly uses InterBase client software to connect to server.
The driver requires InterBase client to be installed on the client side.
DB applications based on dbExpress drivers are easy to deploy, do not require installation
of other data provider layers (such as BDE or ODBC), and that's why they can work
faster than the ones based on standard Delphi data connectivity solutions.
dbExpress driver for InterBase and Firebird is a cross-platform solution for developing
applications using various IDEs: RAD Studio, Delphi, C++Builder on Windows and Mac
OS X for both x86 and x64 platforms. dbExpress driver for InterBase and Firebird
also provides support for the FireMonkey platform, which allows you to develop visually
spectacular high-performance native applications for Windows and Mac OS X.
All our components and libraries are designed to help you write high-performance,
lightweight data access layers, therefore they use advanced data access algorithms
and techniques of optimization.
Our product supports InterBase server versions 5.x up to XE3, Firebird 2.x, 1.x and
dbExpress driver for InterBase and Firebird doesn't limit your choice of the development
platform. Now you can develop for 32-bit and 64-bit platforms with Delphi.
Use our freeware dbMonitor tool to monitor
and analyze all the DB calls made by your application using dbExpress driver for
InterBase and Firebird. dbMonitor performs percomponent tracing of SQL statement execution, commits,
Our product is compatible with the latest IDE versions: Embarcadero RAD Studio XE6,
Delphi XE6 and C++Builder XE6. It is also compatible with the previous IDE versions
since Delphi 6 and C++Builder 6.
Now you can develop not only VCL-based applications in Delphi, but also use the
newest FireMonkey application development platform.
