DBX for MySQL™

dbExpress driver for MySQL and Delphi/C++Builder
MicroOLAP dbExpress driver for MySQL and Delphi/C++Builder is a standard dbExpress driver that provides fast access to MySQL database servers.

DBX for MySQL overview

MicroOLAP dbExpress driver for MySQL and Delphi/C++Builder (DBX4MySQL) is an independent library that implements the common dbExpress interfaces for processing queries, without any third-party libraries and intermediate layers like BDE, ADO or ODBC.

As data-access layer thin and simple, dbExpress (and implicitly DBX4MySQL) provides high performance database connectivity and is easy to deploy. DBX4MySQL driver is available for Windows as a dynamic-link library.

When you deploy a database application that uses DBX4MySQL, you need only include the driver dll with the Delphi/C++Builder application files you build.

DBX4MySQL driver provides very fast access to MySQL through native MySQL network protocol.

DBX4MySQL driver supports transactions on MySQL server.

DBX4MySQL already works on the core we've developed for DAC for MySQL future 3.x version.

The main features of dbExpress driver for MySQL and Delphi/C++Builder are:

  • Does not contain any third-party GPL-licensed components;
