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, Mac OS X, iOS, Android, Linux,
and FreeBSD 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.
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.
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.
PgDAC is a cross-platform solution for developing applications using various IDEs:
RAD Studio, Delphi, C++Builder, Lazarus (and FPC) on Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, Android,
Linux, 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.
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 9.4. We also provide
back compatibility with the previous versions down to 7.1.
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.
Our product is compatible with the latest IDE versions: Embarcadero RAD Studio XE8,
Delphi XE8, C++Builder XE8, Lazarus (and FPC). It is also compatible with the previous
IDE versions since Delphi 6 and C++Builder 6.
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
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,

Just wanted to say I thing the PgDAC components are the best on the market for Delphi
and the fact you don't need libpq.dll is simply amazing and is a huge advantage
when using PostgreSQL in a corporate environment as you dont have to worry about
deploying libpq.dll, and unless you compile your own libpq.dll, the stock ones have
tons of dependencies that you also have to included with your app, but not with
