dbExpress is a database-independent layer that defines common interface to provide
fast access to SQL Server from Delphi and C++Builder on Windows for
both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms. For this server, 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 by Embarcadero.
dbExpress driver for SQL Server provides access to SQL Server database. It works
using high performance Microsoft OLE DB technologies. The driver requires OLE DB
installed on the workstation.
Applications based on dbExpress Driver for SQL Server are easy to deploy, do not
require installation of other data provider layers (such as BDE and ODBC), and that's
why they can work faster than the ones based on standard Delphi data connectivity
solutions. Moreover, dbExpress Driver for SQL Server provides working with SQL Server
not only through OLE DB, but through SQL Native Client as well.
dbExpress Driver for SQL Server is a cross-IDE solution for developing applications
for Windows: RAD Studio, Delphi and C++Builder for both x86 and x64 platforms. dbExpress
driver for SQL Server also provides support for the FireMonkey platform, which allows
you to develop visually spectacular high-performance native applications for Windows.
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.
