[CLOSED] Has anyone used UniDAC from DevArt?
« on: July 09, 2020, 04:19:30 am »
I found they provide database connection to Firebird and many other databases. Actually TIBConnection (from default free pascal) supports connection to the Firebird, but UniDAC's documentation says they provide several more functionality.

Have anyone used this?

I don't but I know several developers who use it with delphi.

You have to look further on Lazarus components. SQLdb supports interbase, firebird, mssql, mysql / mariadb, progresql and odbc database. And it's free.
Lazarus 2.06 (64b) / FPC 3.0.4 / Windows 10
stucked on Delphi 10.3.1

Yes, I know and am using them already on many applications. Just curious because UniDAC says it provides some other functionalities like storing arrays, etc.

If it's Firebird arrays (or FB3-specific features) you're after, take a look at IBX for Lazarus.

IBX for Lazarus.

Have you tried this? If yes, what is your overall evaluation?

Yes, that is the reason I recommended it.

I have several Firebird 3 applications that depend on it. I have no complaints about the library. In fact, I think it is excellent. The developer participates in these forums, and is very responsive to bug reports. And, it has good documentation.
