InterBase Data Access Components
InterBase (and FireBird) Data Access Components (IBDAC) is a library of components that provides native connectivity to InterBase, Firebird and Yaffil from Delphi, C++Builder, Lazarus (and Free Pascal) on Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, Android, Linux, and FreeBSD for both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms. IBDAC-based applications connect to the server directly using the InterBase client. IBDAC is designed to help programmers develop faster and cleaner InterBase database applications.
IBDAC is a complete replacement for standard InterBase connectivity solutions. It presents an efficient alternative to InterBase Express Components, the Borland Database Engine (BDE), and the standard dbExpress driver for access to InterBase.
Native Connectivity to InterBase
IBDAC-based DB applications 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.
Wide Coverage of InterBase Features
By providing access to the most advanced database functionality, IBDAC allows developers to harness the full capabilities of the InterBase and Firebird servers and optimize their database applications. IBDAC provides complete support of InterBase and Fiebird Blobs and Arrays, Unicode character data, and events.
Cross-Platform Solution for Delphi, C++Builder, and Lazarus
IBDAC 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, Android, Linux, and FreeBSD for both x86 and x64 platforms. IBDAC also provides support for the FireMonkey platform, which allows you to develop visually spectacular high-performance desktop and mobile native applications.
High Development Productivity with IBDAC
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.
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.
Develompent for iOS and Android mobile devices using IBDAC becomes still easier, as IBDAC allows your mobile applications to work with InterBase database as simply as desktop applications do.
IBDAC doesn't limit your choice of the development platform. Now you can develop for 32-bit and 64-bit platforms with Delphi and Lazarus (and FPC).
Data Type Mapping
If you want to make custom correspondence between InterBase and Delphi data types, you can use a simple and flexible Data Type Mapping engine provided by IBDAC.
Our product is compatible with the latest IDE versions: Embarcadero RAD Studio 10.1 Berlin, Delphi 10.1 Berlin, C++Builder 10.1 Berlin, 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 platform.
Our product supports InterBase server versions 5.x up to XE, Firebird 3.x, 2.x, 1.x and Yaffil
Use our freeware dbMonitor tool to monitor and analyze all the DB calls made by your application using IBDAC. dbMonitor performs percomponent tracing of SQL statement execution, commits, rollbacks, etc.
