SQL Server Data Access Components (SDAC) is a library of components that provides native connectivity to SQL Server from Delphi, C++Builder, Lazarus (and Free Pascal) for Windows (both 32-bit and 64-bit) and Mac OS X. SDAC-based applications connect to SQL Server directly through OLE DB, which is a native SQL Server interface. SDAC is designed to help programmers develop faster and cleaner SQL Server database applications.
SDAC, a high-performance and feature-rich SQL Server connectivity solution, is a complete replacement for standard SQL Server connectivity solutions and presents an efficient native alternative to the Borland Database Engine (BDE) and standard dbExpress driver for access to SQL Server.
Native Connectivity to SQL Server
SDAC-based DB applications are easy to deploy, do not require installation of other data provider layers (such as BDE and ODBC), and that's why they can work faster than the ones based on standard Delphi data connectivity solutions. Moreover, SDAC provides working with SQL Server not only through OLE DB, but through SQL Native Client as well.
Wide Coverage of SQL Server Features
SDAC supports a wide range of SQL Server specific features, such as Transparent Application Failover, Notification, Queing and reliable messaging, SQL Server Compact Edition, User-defined Types (including HierarchyID, Geography, Geometry), Table-Valued Parameters, Filestream, and others.
Developing in Delphi, C++Builder, and Lazarus for Windows and Mac OS X
SDAC 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 and Android for both x86 and x64 platforms. SDAC also provides support for the FireMonkey application development platform, which allows you to develop visually spectacular high-performance desktop and mobile native applications.
High Development Productivity with SDAC
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.
Allows your application to work with SQL Server directly via TCP/IP without involving SQL Server Client, thus significantly facilitating deployment and configuration of your applications.
Develompent for iOS and Android mobile devices using SDAC becomes still easier, as SDAC allows your mobile applications to work with SSQL Server database as simply as desktop applications do.
SQL Server 2016\2014\2012\2008 R2\ 2008\2005 (including Express edition), SQL Server 2000 (including MSDE), SQL Server 7, SQL Server Compact 4.0\3.5\3.1, SQL Azure
Our product is compatible with the latest IDE versions: Embarcadero RAD Studio 10.2 Tokyo, Delphi 10.2 Tokyo, C++Builder 10.2 Tokyo, Lazarus (and FPC). It is also compatible with the previous IDE versions since Delphi 6 and C++Builder 6.
Data Type Mapping
If you want to make custom correspondence between SQL Server and Delphi data types, you can use a simple and flexible Data Type Mapping engine provided by SDAC.
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.
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.
Use our freeware dbMonitor tool to monitor and analyze all the DB calls made by your application using SQL Server data access components. dbMonitor performs percomponent tracing of SQL statement execution, commits, rollbacks, etc.
