Delphi really does provide us with choices of many different types of database access technologies. These include DBGo, Embarcadero’s very own Interbase, ADO, and many other options. In this video, however, Jim Mckeeth will walk us through FireDAC. Aside from Windows program development, FireDAC offers complete cross-platform support for RAD Studio, allowing you to seamlessly work with different platforms like Linux, macOS, iOS, and Android. Here, we will learn how to connect to a database with FireDAC.
What You Should Know About FireDAC and How it Works
Generally, FireDAC is described as a powerful multi-device data access library with a unique set of Universal Data Access Components for developing multi-device database applications for Delphi and C++Builder. The framework is the new, high-performance, cross-platform, multi-database component framework that is available for RAD Studio that allows developers to create applications fast that connects to any type of database.
In this video, Jim Mckeeth will discuss all the basics of FireDAC and how to connect to a database using this framework. He will walk us through every basic step of accessing FireDAC in Delphi. One of the notable advantages of using FireDAC is that you are using the same set of components no matter what database you are connected to.
FireDAC’s power and practicality, its complete cross-platform support, and its exceptional support for databases are some of the factors why FireDAC has become a top choice among other database access technologies. The video will also provide us with samples and demonstrations using FireDAC. To know more about this framework, feel free to watch the video below which is taken from the recently concluded Coding Boot Camp 2022.
