SDAC

Editions

SQL Server Data Access Components comes in three editions: SDAC Standard Edition, SDAC Professional Edition, and SDAC Trial Edition.

SDAC Standard Edition includes the SDAC basic connectivity components and the SDAC Migration Wizard. SDAC Standard Edition is a good choice for beginning SQL Server developers and a cost-effective solution for database application developers who only need basic connectivity functionality for SQL Server.

SDAC Professional Edition shows off the full power of SDAC, enhancing SDAC Standard Edition with support for SQL Server-specific functionality. SDAC Professional Edition is intended for serious application developers who want to take advantage of all the SQL Server-specific functionality support provided by SDAC.

SDAC Trial Edition is the evaluation version of SDAC. It includes all the functionality of SDAC Professional Edition with a trial limitation of 60 days. C++Builder has additional trial limitations*.

You can get source code of all the component classes in SDAC by purchasing the special SDAC Professional Edition with Source Code**.
