PgDAC

Editions

PostgreSQL Data Access Components comes in two editions: Standard and Professional.

The Standard edition includes the PgDAC basic connectivity components. PgDAC Standard Edition is a cost-effective solution for database application developers who are looking for high-performance connectivity to PostgreSQL for secure, reliable, and high-speed data transmission.

The Professional edition shows off the full power of PgDAC, enhancing PgDAC Standard Edition with support for PostgreSQL-specific functionality and advanced dataset management features.

You can get Source Access to PgDAC Professional Edition by purchasing a special PgDAC Professional Edition with Source Code, which includes the source code of all component classes. The source code of DataSet Manager and Migration Wizard is not distributed.
