InterBase and Firebird Data Access Components

InterBase (and FireBird) Data Access Components (IBDAC) is a library of components that provides native connectivity to InterBase and Firebird from Delphi and C++Builder including Community Edition, as well as Lazarus (and Free Pascal) on Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS, and Android for both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms. IBDAC-based applications connect to the server directly using the InterBase client. IBDAC is designed to help programmers develop faster and cleaner InterBase database applications.

IBDAC is a complete replacement for standard InterBase connectivity solutions. It presents an efficient alternative to InterBase Express Components, the Borland Database Engine (BDE), and the standard dbExpress driver for access to InterBase.

Native Connectivity to InterBase

IBDAC-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.

Cross-Platform Solution for Delphi, C++Builder, and Lazarus

IBDAC is a cross-platform solution for developing applications using various IDEs: RAD Studio, Delphi, C++Builder, Lazarus (and FPC) on Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS, Android, and FreeBSD for both x86 and x64 platforms. IBDAC also provides support for the FireMonkey platform, which allows you to develop visually spectacular high-performance desktop and mobile native applications.

Cross-platform and cross-IDE solution

Performance

Performance

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.

Mobile Development

Mobile Development

Develompent for iOS and Android mobile devices using IBDAC becomes still easier, as IBDAC allows your mobile applications to work with InterBase database as simply as desktop applications do.

64-bit Development

64-bit Development

IBDAC doesn't limit your choice of the development platform. Now you can develop for 32-bit and 64-bit platforms with Delphi and Lazarus (and FPC).

IDE Compatibility

IDE Compatibility

Our product is compatible with the latest IDE versions and editions including Community Edition: Embarcadero RAD Studio 10.4 Sydney, Delphi 10.4 Sydney, C++ Builder 10.4 Sydney, Lazarus (and FPC). It is also compatible with the previous IDE versions since Delphi 6 and C++Builder 6.

Data Type Mapping

Data Type Mapping

If you want to make custom correspondence between InterBase and Delphi data types, you can use a simple and flexible Data Type Mapping engine provided by IBDAC.
