PostgreSQL Data Access Components
PostgreSQL Data Access Components (PgDAC) is a library of components that provides native connectivity to PostgreSQL from Delphi, C++Builder, Lazarus (and Free Pascal) on Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS, and Android, for both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms. PgDAC is designed to help programmers develop really lightweight, faster and cleaner PostgreSQL database applications without deploying any additional libraries.
PgDAC is a complete replacement for standard PostgreSQL connectivity solutions and presents an efficient alternative to the Borland Database Engine (BDE) and standard dbExpress driver for access to PostgreSQL. It provides direct access to PostgreSQL without PostgreSQL Client.
Native Connectivity to PostgreSQL
PgDAC-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, PgDAC provides an additional opportunity to work with PostgreSQL directly via TCP/IP without involving PostgreSQL Client.
Wide Coverage of PostgreSQL Features
By providing access to the most advanced database functionality, PgDAC allows developers to harness the full capabilities of the PostgreSQL server and optimize their database applications. PgDAC features complete support of fast record insertion, Asynchronous Notification, PostgreSQL sequences, the possibility to retrieve the last inserted OID value, notices, and more.
Cross-Platform Solution for Delphi, C++Builder, and Lazarus
PgDAC 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. PgDAC also provides support for the FireMonkey platform, which allows you to develop visually spectacular high-performance desktop and mobile native applications.
High Development Productivity with PgDAC
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, and others.
Allows your application to work with PostgreSQL directly without involving PostgreSQL connectivity solutions, thus significantly facilitating deployment and configuration of your applications.
Develompent for iOS and Android mobile devices using PgDAC becomes still easier, as PgDAC allows your mobile applications to work with PostgreSQL database as simply as desktop applications do.
Our product supports the latest PostgreSQL server versions up to 10.1. We also provide compatibility with Microsoft Azure Database for PostgreSQL.
Our product is compatible with the latest IDE versions: Embarcadero RAD Studio 10.2 Tokyo, Delphi 10.2 Tokyo, C++Builder 10.2 Tokyo, Lazarus (and FPC). It is also compatible with the previous IDE versions since Delphi 6 and C++Builder 6.
Data Type Mapping
If you want to make custom correspondence between PostgreSQL and Delphi data types, you can use a simple and flexible Data Type Mapping engine provided by PgDAC.
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.
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 PostgreSQL data access components. dbMonitor performs percomponent tracing of SQL statement execution, commits, rollbacks, etc.
