dbExpress Driver for PostgreSQL Overview
dbExpress is a database-independent layer that defines common interface to provide fast access to PostgreSQL from Delphi and C++Builder on Windows and Mac OS X for both 32-bit and 64-bitplatforms. 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 PostgreSQL provides direct high performance access to PostgreSQL database server. It directly connects to the server without using PostgreSQL client software.
Native Connectivity to PostgreSQL
Applications based on dbExpress driver for PostgreSQL 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, PgDAC provides an additional opportunity to work with PostgreSQL directly via TCP/IP without involving PostgreSQL Client.
Cross-Platform Solution for Delphi and C++Builder
dbExpress driver for PostgreSQL is a cross-platform solution for developing applications using various IDEs: RAD Studio, Delphi and C++Builder on Windows and Mac OS X for both x86 and x64 platforms. dbExpress driver for PostgreSQL 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 PostgreSQL directly without involving PostgreSQL connectivity solutions, thus significantly facilitating deployment and configuration of your applications.
Our product supports the latest PostgreSQL server versions up to 9.2. We also provide back compatibility with the previous versions down to 7.1.
dbExpress driver for PostgreSQL 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 dbMonitortool to monitor and analyze all the DB calls made by your application using dbExpress Driver for PostgreSQL. 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.
