WEB Content Management with Borland RAD Tools: MicroOLAP Direct Access Components
Trenton, NJ, 03 December, 2001 -- MicroOLAP Technologies company has announced today the release of Direct Access Components (DAC) series, the libraries of native VCL components for direct access to MySQL, PostgreSQL, Sybase ASA, Sybase ASE and mSQL database servers.
MySQLDAC, PostgresDAC, ASADAC, ASEDAC and mSQLDAC provide high performance direct access to appropriate servers from Borland Delphi/C++ Builder applications. The main advantage of these DAC components sets is that it doesn't require BDE/ODBC on the client side.
Using this feature you are able to build really thin client and easy distributable applications with full control of large BLOB fields (MP3, PDF, HTML, streaming audio/video content, ZIP archives etc.). Direct Access Components allow you to simplify distribution, administration and support of your applications and reduces system requirements.
MySQLDAC, PostgresDAC, ASADAC, ASEDAC and mSQLDAC are easier, more flexible, powerful and fast way of development database applications with DataBases and Borland Delphi/C++Builder. These components sets support all DBMS specific features and simplifies developing of client/server applications.
TDBImageEx component for JPEG images support is included with sources in all packages for free.
Application written with DAC components sets works times faster than created with traditional BDE/ODBC approach, is more reliable and certainly requires less support resources. Interface of DAC components is BDE-compatible, so these components sets allow easier migration of existing projects from BDE/ODBC scheme to the native one.
Now MicroOLAP Technologies distributes DAC components packages for Borland Delphi 4-6 and C++ Builder 5. ActiveX versions of MySQLDAC, PostgresDAC, ASADAC and mSQLDAC components sets will be coming soon.
