SQL Server Data Access Components (SDAC) is a library of components
that provides native connectivity to SQL Server from Delphi, C++Builder,
Lazarus (and Free Pascal) for Windows (both 32-bit and 64-bit)
and Mac OS X. 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.
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 working with SQL Server not only through OLE DB, but through SQL Native
Client as well.
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.
SDAC 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 and
Android 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.
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 SQL Server directly via TCP/IP without involving
SQL Server Client, thus significantly facilitating deployment and configuration
of your applications.
Develompent for iOS and Android mobile devices using SDAC becomes still easier,
as SDAC allows your mobile applications to work with SSQL Server database as simply as
desktop applications do.
SQL Server 2014\2012\2008 R2\ 2008\2005 (including Express edition), SQL Server 2000
(including MSDE), SQL Server 7, SQL Server Compact 4.0\3.5\3.1, SQL Azure
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.
Our product is compatible with the latest IDE versions: Embarcadero RAD Studio 10 Seattle,
Delphi 10 Seattle, C++Builder 10 Seattle, 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 SQL Server data access
components. dbMonitor performs percomponent tracing of SQL statement execution, commits,

SDAC component suite gave us opportunity to provide our customers with trouble-free
and efficient database access in our software solutions. Since we began using Devart
DAC components, our development time shortened drastically, since we can focus on
the application instead of data access. Some clever solutions, like macro parameters,
gave us widened programming options which help us satisfy our customers more efficiently.
Devart's devotion to keep up with database server developers warrants us security
and helps us stay in business.
We do actually use SDAC, MyDAC, IBDAC and ODAC, in some of our software solutions
we use even more than two of them at the same time. I personally think that Devart's
DAC libraries for Delphi were our best buy, and helped us a lot in database applications

We have developed an ERP system for a wet glue label printer company. The 280 users
are using the application in a 7*24 hour production. With SDAC we have implemented
fast performing client applications, production systems which are easy to install
and maintain. Since The software is over 2 million lines of code the use of the
right dataset componentset is critical. We think using Devart SDAC is for us the
best choice, because no additional drivers need to be installed, it performs well
even on the older machines and the quality is excellent.
