MySQL Data Access Components (MyDAC) is a library of components that
provides direct access to MySQL from Delphi, C++Builder, Lazarus
(and Free Pascal) on Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, Android, Linux, and FreeBSD
for both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms. Applications based on MyDAC
can connect directly to MySQL server or work through the MySQL client library. MyDAC
is designed to help programmers develop faster and cleaner MySQL database applications.
MyDAC is a complete replacement for standard MySQL connectivity solutions and presents
an efficient alternative to the Borland Database Engine (BDE) and standard dbExpress
driver for access to MySQL.
MyDAC-based DB applications 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. Moreover, MyDAC
provides an additional opportunity to work with MySQL directly without involving
MySQL client library.
By providing access to the most advanced database functionality, MyDAC allows developers
to harness the full capabilities of the MySQL server and optimize their database
applications. MyDAC provides complete support of Embedded server, secure connection
and MySQL administration tasks.
MyDAC is a cross-platform solution for developing applications using various IDEs:
RAD Studio, Delphi, C++Builder, Lazarus (and FPC) on Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, Android,
Linux, and FreeBSD for both x86 and x64 platforms. MyDAC also provides support for
the FireMonkey platform, which allows you to develop visually spectacular high-performance
native applications for Windows and Mac OS X.
We provide various GUI tools that will increase your productivity: dbMonitor allows
monitoring activity of your DB applications, Dataset Manager simplifies DataSet
and DB controls tweaking, dbForge Fusion for MySQL provides an easier way to explore
and maintain existing DBs, design compound SQL statements and queries, as well as
When I tried using the
MySQL tools in FireDAC I had 20 pages of docs to plow through, downloads from 3rd
parties, modification of .ini files, changes to Windows directory security, and
I never got it working. (I have been working with Delphi since Delphi 1 so I am
not a complete Newbie.)
MyDAC worked right out of the Box. Instant Gratification.
Allows your application to work with MySQL directly without involving MySQL client
library, thus significantly facilitating deployment and configuration of your applications.
Develompent for iOS and Android mobile devices using MyDAC becomes still easier,
as MyDAC allows your mobile applications to work with MySQL database as simply as
desktop applications do.
Our product supports MySQL servers: 6.0, 5.6, 5.5, 5.1, 5.0, 4.1, 4.0, 3.23; MySQL
Embedded servers: 6.0, 5.6, 5.5, 5.1, 4.1, 4.0; MariaDB 5.x
If you want to make custom correspondence between MySQL Server and Delphi data types,
you can use a simple and flexible Data Type Mapping engine provided by MyDAC.
Our product is compatible with the latest IDE versions: Embarcadero RAD Studio XE7,
Delphi XE7, C++Builder XE7, Lazarus (and FPC). 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 and LCL-based ones
in Lazarus, but also use the newest FireMonkey application development
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.
Use our freeware dbMonitor tool to monitor
and analyze all the DB calls made by your application using MyDAC. dbMonitor performs
percomponent tracing of SQL statement execution, commits, rollbacks,
