dbExpress Driver for Oracle Overview
dbExpress is a database-independent layer that defines common interface to provide fast access to Oracle fromDelphi and C++Builder on Windows and Mac OS X for both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms. For this server, dbExpress provides a driver as an independent library that implements the common dbExpress interface for processing queries and stored procedures. As data-access layer is thin and simple, dbExpress provides high performance database connectivity and is easy to deploy. You can use our driver in the same way as the one supplied by Embarcadero.
dbExpress driver for Oracle provides direct high performance access to Oracle database server. It provides both possibility of connection to Oracle by means of native Oracle data access and direct access to Oracle without Oracle Client.
Native Connectivity to Oracle
DB applications based on dbExpress drivers are easy to deploy, do not require installation of other data provider layers (such as BDE or ODBC), and that's why they can work faster than the ones based on standard Delphi data connectivity solutions. Moreover, dbExpress driver for Oracle provides an additional opportunity to work with Oracle directly via TCP/IP without involving Oracle Client.
Cross-Platform Solution for Delphi and C++Builder
dbExpress driver for Oracle is a cross-platform solution for developing applications using various IDEs: RAD Studio, Delphi, C++Builder on Windows and Mac OS X for both x86 and x64 platforms. dbExpress driver for Oracle also provides support for the FireMonkey platform, which allows you to develop visually spectacular high-performance native applications for Windows and Mac OS X.
Allows your application to work with Oracle directly via TCP/IP without involving Oracle Client, thus significantly facilitating deployment and configuration of your applications.
Our product supports Oracle servers 12c, 11g, 10g, 9i, 8i, 8.0, and 7.3, including Oracle Express Edition 11g and 10g.
dbExpress driver for Oracle doesn't limit your choice of the development platform. Now you can develop for 32-bit and 64-bit platforms with Delphi.
Use our freeware dbMonitor tool to monitor and analyze all the DB calls made by your application using dbExpress driver for Oracle. dbMonitor performs percomponent tracing of SQL statement execution, commits, rollbacks, etc.
Our product is compatible with the latest IDE versions: Embarcadero RAD Studio XE8, Delphi XE8 and C++Builder XE8. 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, but also use the newest FireMonkey application development platform.
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.
