dbExpress driver for InterBase Description
Developers who use C++ Builder and Delphi programming languages could use a solution for connecting these platforms to some database management systems like InterBase or Firebird. dbExpress driver for InterBase will provide them with a way of establishing such a connection. It provides people with increased access to the previously mentioned databases from their programming environments.
Deployed as an independent library which uses storage procedures and queries in order to define the connections, this driver will provide better connectivity than the one achieved directly from Delphi. It will do so by using a light set of data-access layers that will connect directly through the InterBase client.
Those who will base their applications on designs created with this driver will not need to install any additional data provider layers, such as BDE or ODBC. Eliminating the hassle of extra requirements, a better workflow is achieved and such applications will be faster than those based solely on Delphi data connectivity protocols.
Users will be able to implement the connectivity capabilities in several IDEs, some of which are: RAD Studio, Delphi, C++Builder and the FireMonkey platform (that will allow them to develop applications with high performance in terms of visual aspects).
If people are familiarized with the drivers supplied with Embarcadero, they can rest assured, as the driver can be used in the same way. As with similar software packages offered by this developer, the dbExpress driver for InterBase can be successfully used on both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures.
