MySQL Data Access Components

MySQL Data Access Components (MyDAC) is a library of components that provides direct access to MySQL and MariaDB 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. 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.

Native Connectivity 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.

Wide Coverage of MySQL Features

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.

  • SSL connection
  • Row-level and table-level-locking
  • Embedded Server
  • Service tasks
  • Bulk data loading
  • Direct connection
  • HTTP tunneling
  • Transparent Application Failover

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

MyDAC is a cross-platform solution for developing applications using various IDEs: RAD Studio, Delphi, C++Builder, Lazarus (and FPC) on Windows, macOS, Linux, iOS, Android, 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 desktop and mobile native applications.

Cross-platform and cross-IDE solution

Secure connection

You can use SecureBridge components with data access components to embed an SSL, SSH, or HTTP/HTTPS clients into your application to establish a secure connection to the server.

Data Type Mapping

Data Type Mapping

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.

Development Platforms

Development Platforms

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 platform.

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.

Monitoring

Monitoring

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, etc.
