Hello C++ Builder Developers,
We have great new C++ Builder post picks from the LearnCPlusPlus.org website on the basics of connectivity to different database systems. Do you want to learn how to connect to MySQL Server in C++ Builder? Want to use the MyDAC component to connect MySQL Database in C++ Builder? Do you want to connect to PostgreSQL in C++ Builder? Do you want to learn how to use the FireDac component to connect many supported databases in RAD Studio? Do you want to learn how to set up and create a simple database in InterBase? Do you know how to connect to an Interbase database by using FireDAC components?
FireDAC component pack is one of the great component for database connections that comes with RAD Studio, C++ Builder or Delphi officially. FireDAC is a Universal Data Access library for developing applications for multiple devices, connected to enterprise databases. With its powerful universal architecture, FireDAC enables native high-speed direct access from Delphi and C++Builder to InterBase, SQLite, MySQL, SQL Server, Oracle, PostgreSQL, DB2, SQL Anywhere, Advantage DB, Firebird, Access, Informix, DataSnap and more, including the NoSQL Database MongoDB.
Devart is a great company that supports the latest C++ Builder and Delphi and it has MySQL Data Access Components (MyDAC) for C++ Builder, Delphi and it is a library of components that provides direct access to MySQL and MariaDB including Community Edition, as well as Lazarus (and Free Pascal) on Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS, and Android for both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms.
MySQL is one of the world’s most popular open-source databases and it is very easy and very useful to use small to large scale databases.
PostgreSQL is another popular database that is a powerful, open source object-relational database system with over 30 years of active development that has earned it a strong reputation for reliability, feature robustness, and performance.
InterBase is a powerful database developed and supported by Idera / Embarcadero, it has a zero-administration, small-footprint database engine that can power your server and even run on your mobile devices as an embedded database. The InterBase 2020 release adds several new features, including tablespaces support for InterBase, allowing for better performance on servers with multiple data-storage options. InterBase 2020 is an ultrafast, scalable, embeddable SQL database with commercial-grade data security, disaster recovery, and change synchronization abilities.
If you are a beginner or want to jump into C++ Builder please visit our LearnCPlusPlus.org website for the great posts from basics to professional examples, full codes, snippets, etc.
We have explained how to connect these databases and components. We will continue to add more database connectivity options. We have also added how to check compiled OS platform and how to check application is compiled in 32bits or 64bits. Here are our picks for you!
