ABOUT :Data Access Components for MySQL (MyDAC) is a library of components that provides direct access to MySQL from Delphi, C++Builder, Lazarus (and Free Pascal) for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, Linux, and FreeBSD platforms. Applications based on MyDAC can connect directly to MySQL server or work through the MySQL client library. MyDAC is designed to help programmers develop faster and cleaner MySQL database applications. MyDAC is a complete replacement for standard MySQL connectivity solutions and presents an efficient alternative to the Borland Database Engine (BDE) and standard dbExpress driver for access to MySQL.
Native Connectivity to MySQL
MyDAC-based DB applications are easy to deploy, do not require installation of other data provider layers (such as BDE or ODBC), and thats why they can work faster than the ones based on standard Delphi data connectivity solutions. Moreover, MyDAC provides an additional opportunity to work with MySQL directly without involving MySQL client library.
Wide Coverage of MySQL Features
By providing access to the most advanced database functionality, MyDAC allows developers to harness the full capabilities of the MySQL server and optimize their database applications. MyDAC provides complete support of Embedded server, secure connection and MySQL administration tasks.
Cross-Platform Solution for Delphi, C++Builder, and Lazarus
MyDAC is a cross-platform solution for developing applications using various IDEs: RAD Studio, Delphi, C++Builder, Lazarus (and FPC) on Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, Linux, and FreeBSD for both x86 and x64 platforms. MyDAC also provides support for the FireMonkey platform, which allows you to develop visually spectacular high-performance native applications for Windows and Mac OS X.
