What Database is "friend" of lazarus?
« on: June 07, 2006, 09:00:04 am »
Well, i want to start my first project in Lazarus

I'm thinking in the database model, and have doubts. I tought in Oracle10XE, but is a big RDBMS for a "small" project.

What do you think about this? A DDBB thath understand good with Lazarus without any problems or runtime installations?

If you visit the "home" page of this website, I wrote an article documenting the existance of "Pascal Data Objects" which allows Delphi and Free Pascal to use the latest versions of mysql using native library calls and supporting their newer features like prepared statements, triggers, column bindings, etc.  It's written generically, but currently only MySQL 4.0, 4.1, and 5.0 are supported.

I use it commercially on both unix and windows, and mysql is fine for small projects.  I'm not going to say it's the best "friend" of lazarus, but it's what I created because I wasn't happy with any of the available options and I'm thrilled with it.

I recommend you to use Firebird. I've been using it with Lazarus for some of my applications without problems, utilizing sqlDB components as the connector component. Firebird is also available on embedded mode, so you can use it for local database and then you can expand it to a real remote database if required without changing anything in the application code.

Yip, single dll to ship with your app. No other installations (drivers ens.) required. The Driver dll IS the DB server. Love It !
