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 native applications for Windows and Mac OS X.
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.
