Go Up to Getting Started (FireDAC)


This topic describes how to install the FireDAC demo databases.

Generalities

FireDAC uses the Northwind as a demo database. The SQLite and MS Access demo databases are preinstalled and do not require any additional configuration. For other DBMS, you have to set up the connection and create a database. FireDAC contains SQL scripts, CSV data files, and BAT files. The demo database may be created manually at any time.

Prerequisites

  • You should have an existing database and user account.
  • SQLite - the installer installs a ready-to-use database file at C:\Users\Public\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\20.0\Samples\Data\fddemo.sdb.
  • Access database - the installer installs a ready-to-use database file at C:\Users\Public\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\20.0\Samples\Data\fddemo.mdb.
  • SQL Server 2000 - the Northwind DB installation may be optional. Since it is part of the SQL Server 2000 distribution, it may be downloaded separately or it may be already installed.

  • Go to the C:\Users\Public\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\20.0\Samples\Object Pascal\Database\FireDAC\Bin folder.
  • SQL Server - to disable the Northwind DB installation, open createMSSQL.bat and replace True with False. For the SQL Server 2000, replace MSSQL with MSSQL2000.
  • Run create<your DBMS>.bat.
