Oracle Data Access Components
Oracle Data Access Components (ODAC) is a library of components that provides native connectivity to Oracle from Delphi, C++Builder, Lazarus (and Free Pascal) on Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, Android, Linux, and FreeBSD for both 32-bit and 64-bit platforms. The ODAC library is designed to help programmers develop faster and more native Oracle database applications.
ODAC, a high-performance and feature-rich Oracle connectivity solution, is an efficient native alternative to the Borland Database Engine (BDE) and standard dbExpress driver. It provides both possibility of connection to Oracle by means of native Oracle data access and direct access to Oracle without Oracle Client.
Native Connectivity to Oracle
ODAC-based DB applications are easy to deploy, do not require installation of other data provider layers (such as BDE or ODBC), and that's why they can work faster than the ones based on standard Delphi data connectivity solutions. Moreover, ODAC provides an additional opportunity to work with Oracle directly via TCP/IP without involving Oracle Client.
Wide Coverage of Oracle Features
ODAC supports a wide range of Oracle-specific features, such as DML Arrays, REF cursors, Objects, Packages, Direct Path Loading, Alerts, Pipes, Change notifications, Advanced Queuing, Transparent Application Failover, and others.
Cross-Platform Solution for Delphi, C++Builder, and Lazarus
ODAC 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, Android, Linux, and FreeBSD for both x86 and x64 platforms. ODAC also provides support for the FireMonkey application development platform, which allows you to develop visually spectacular high-performance desktop and mobile native applications.
High Development Productivity with ODAC
We provide various GUI tools that will increase your productivity: dbMonitor allows monitoring activity of your DB applications, Dataset Manager simplifies DataSet and DB controls tweaking, OraDeveloper Tools provides an easier way to explore and maintain existing DBs, design compound SQL statements and queries, as well as manipulate data.
Allows your application to work with Oracle directly via TCP/IP without involving Oracle Client, thus significantly facilitating deployment and configuration of your applications.
Develompent for iOS and Android mobile devices using ODAC becomes still easier, as ODAC allows your mobile applications to work with Oracle database as simply as desktop applications do.
Our product supports Oracle servers 12c, 11g, 10g, 9i, 8i, 8.0, including Oracle Express Edition 11g and 10g.
Data Type Mapping
If you want to make custom correspondence between Oralce and Delphi data types, you can use a simple and flexible Data Type Mapping engine provided by ODAC.
DevArt product is compatible with the latest IDE versions: Embarcadero RAD Studio 10.1 Berlin, Delphi 10.1 Berlin, C++Builder 10.1 Berlin, Lazarus (and FPC). It is also compatible with the previous IDE versions since Delphi 6 and C++Builder 6.
Now you can develop not only VCL-based applications in Delphi and LCL-based ones in Lazarus, but also use the newest FireMonkey application development platform.
All DevArt components and libraries are designed to help you write high-performance, lightweight data access layers, therefore they use advanced data access algorithms and techniques of optimization.
Use DeVart freeware dbMonitor tool to monitor and analyze all the DB calls made by your application using ODAC. dbMonitor performs percomponent tracing of SQL statement execution, commits, rollbacks, etc.
