EntityDAC

Deployment



EntityDAC applications can be  built and deployed with or without run-time libraries. Using run-time libraries is managed with the "Build with runtime packages" check box in the Project Options dialog box.

Deploying Windows applications built without run-time packages

You do not need to deploy any files with EntityDAC-based applications built without run-time packages, provided you are using a registered version of EntityDAC.

You can check your application does not require run-time packages by making sure the "Build with runtime packages" check box is not selected in the Project Options dialog box.

Trial Limitation Warning

If you are evaluating deploying Windows applications with EntityDAC Trial Edition, you will need to deploy the following DAC BPL files:

EntityDACXX.bpl always

and their dependencies (required IDE BPL files) with your application, even if it is built without run-time packages:

rtlXX.bpl always
dbrtlXX.bpl always
vcldbXXX.bpl always

Deploying Windows applications built with run-time packages

You can set your application to be built with run-time packages by selecting the "Build with runtime packages" check box in the Project Options dialog box before compiling your application.

In this case, you will also need to deploy the following BPL files with your Windows application:

EntityDACXX.bpl always

Additional requirements

If you use XML-mapping in your applicaiton, you must also deploy an XML file containing the data model.
