About dbExpress Driver for PostgreSQL

Provide fast, high performance access to PostgreSQL database servers.

dbExpress Driver for PostgreSQL is a database-independent layer that defines common interface to provide fast access to PostgreSQL from Delphi and C++Builder including Community Edition 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 PostgreSQL Features

  • Native Connectivity to PostgreSQL - Applications based on dbExpress driver for PostgreSQL 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, PgDAC provides an additional opportunity to work with PostgreSQL directly via TCP/IP without involving PostgreSQL Client.
  • Cross-Platform Solution for Delphi and C++Builder - dbExpress driver for PostgreSQL is a cross-platform solution for developing applications using various IDEs: RAD Studio, Delphi and C++Builder on Windows and macOS for both x86 and x64 platforms. dbExpress driver for PostgreSQL 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 PostgreSQL directly without involving PostgreSQL connectivity solutions, thus significantly facilitating deployment and configuration of your applications.
  • DB Compatibility - The product supports the latest PostgreSQL server versions and also provides compatibility with Microsoft Azure Database for PostgreSQL and Google Cloud for PostgreSQL.
  • 64-bit Development - dbExpress driver for PostgreSQL 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 PostgreSQL. dbMonitor performs per­component tracing of SQL statement execution, commits, rollbacks, etc.
  • IDE Compatibility - The product is compatible with the latest IDE versions and editions of 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.
