SQL Server Data Access Components

SQL Server Data Access Components (SDAC) is a library of components that provides native connectivity to SQL Server from Delphi and C++Builder including Community Edition, as well as Lazarus (and Free Pascal) for Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS, and Android for both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms. SDAC-based applications connect to SQL Server directly through OLE DB, which is a native SQL Server interface. SDAC is designed to help programmers develop faster and cleaner SQL Server database applications.

SDAC, a high-performance and feature-rich SQL Server connectivity solution, is a complete replacement for standard SQL Server connectivity solutions and presents an efficient native alternative to the Borland Database Engine (BDE) and standard dbExpress driver for access to SQL Server.

Native Connectivity to SQL Server

SDAC-based DB applications are easy to deploy, do not require installation of other data provider layers (such as BDE and ODBC), and that's why they can work faster than the ones based on standard Delphi data connectivity solutions. Moreover, SDAC provides functionality for working with SQL Server not only through OLE DB, but also through SQL Native Client.

Cross-Platform Development in Delphi, C++Builder, and Lazarus

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

Cross-platform and cross-IDE solution

Wide Coverage of SQL Server Features

SDAC supports a wide range of SQL Server specific features, such as Transparent Application Failover, Notification, Queing and reliable messaging, SQL Server Compact Edition, User-defined Types (including HierarchyID, Geography, Geometry), Table-Valued Parameters, Filestream, and others.

Product features

Direct Mode

Direct Mode

Allows your application to work with SQL Server directly via TCP/IP without involving SQL Server Client, thus significantly facilitating deployment and configuration of your applications.

Mobile Development

Mobile Development

Development for iOS and Android mobile devices using SDAC becomes still easier, as SDAC allows your mobile applications to work with SQL Server database as simply as desktop applications do.

Data Type Mapping

Data Type Mapping

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

Development Platforms

Development Platforms

All major GUI frameworks supported: develop VCL applications for Windows or cross-platform FMX applications in Delphi, as well as LCL applications for Windows, macoS, or Linux in Lazarus.

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 SQL Server data access components. dbMonitor performs per­component tracing of SQL statement execution, commits, rollbacks, etc.
