About dbExpress Driver for Oracle

Provide fast, high performance access to Oracle database servers.

dbExpress Driver for Oracle is a database-independent layer that defines common interface to provide fast access to Oracle from Delphi and C++Builder on Windows and macOS. For this server, dbExpress provides a driver as an independent library that implements the common dbExpress interface for processing queries and stored procedures. As data-access layer is thin and simple, dbExpress provides high performance database connectivity and is easy to deploy.

dbExpress driver for Oracle Features

  • Native Connectivity to Oracle - DB applications based on dbExpress drivers 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, dbExpress driver for Oracle provides an additional opportunity to work with Oracle directly via TCP/IP without involving Oracle Client.
  • Cross-Platform Solution for Delphi and C++Builder - dbExpress driver for Oracle is a cross-platform solution for developing applications using various IDEs: RAD Studio, Delphi, C++Builder on Windows and macOS for both x86 and x64 platforms. dbExpress driver for Oracle also provides support for the FireMonkey platform, which allows you to develop visually spectacular high-performance native applications for Windows and macOS.
  • Direct Mode - Allows your application to work with Oracle directly via TCP/IP without involving Oracle Client, thus significantly facilitating deployment and configuration of your applications.
  • DB Compatibility - The product supports Oracle servers, including Oracle Express Edition 11g and 10g.
  • 64-bit Development - dbExpress driver for Oracle doesn't limit your choice of the development platform. Now you can develop for 32-bit and 64-bit platforms with Delphi.
  • Monitoring - Use the dbMonitor tool to monitor and analyze all the DB calls made by your application using dbExpress driver for Oracle. dbMonitor performs per­component tracing of SQL statement execution, commits, rollbacks, etc.
  • IDE Compatibility - The product is compatible with the latest IDE versions and editions for Delphi and C++Builder including Community Edition.
  • Development Platforms - Now you can develop not only VCL-based applications in Delphi, but also use the newest FireMonkey application development platform.
  • Performance - All the 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.
