During each day of January 2013, I am creating a new video showing you how to use the new C++Builder XE3 compilers for Win32, Win64 and OSX to create multi-platform, database, multi-tier, HD and 3D applications. Yesterday you learned how to use the InterBase Express components to access an InterBase database. In this eighth video you will learn how to build a C++ FireMonkey multi-platform database client application using the dbExpress components, TDataSetProvider, and TClientDataSet to allow database updates to be sent back to the SQL database. The same client application can be compiled and run on Win32, Win64 and OS X. The same client program can be used to connect to any of the other SQL databases supported by dbExpress including Oracle, Microsoft SQL, MySQL, DB2, Informix, FireBird, Sybase, SQLite as well as databases supported by our technology partners. DevArt, for example, has a dbExpress driver available for PostgreSQL. Stay tuned to my blog for additional C++ programming videos each day.
