dbExpress Driver for Oracle Overview
dbExpress is a database-independent layer that defines common interface to provide fast access to Oracle from Delphi and C++Builder, including Community Edition, on Windows and macOS (32-bit and 64-bit) and Linux (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 Oracle provides direct high performance access to Oracle database server. It provides both possibility of connection to Oracle by means of native Oracle data access and direct access to Oracle without Oracle Client.
Native Connectivity to Oracle
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. Moreover, dbExpress driver for Oracle provides an additional opportunity to work with Oracle directly via TCP/IP without involving Oracle Client.
Cross-Platform Solution for Delphi and C++Builder
dbExpress driver for Oracle is a cross-platform solution for developing applications using various IDEs: RAD Studio, Delphi, C++Builder on Windows and macOS (x86 and x64) and Linux (x64) platforms. dbExpress driver for Oracle also provides support for the FireMonkey platform, which allows you to develop visually spectacular high-performance native applications for Windows and macOS.
