Developing Database Applications for the Win32 Platform Index
Go Up to Developing Database Applications
Database applications let users interact with the information that is stored in the databases. Databases provide structure for the information, and allow it to be shared among different applications.
Delphi provides support for relational database applications. Relational databases organize information into tables, which contain rows (records) and columns (fields). These tables can be manipulated by simple operations known as the relational calculus.
- Note: The Borland Database Engine (BDE) has been deprecated, so it will not be enhanced. For instance, BDE will never have Unicode support. You should not undertake new development with BDE. Consider migrating your existing database applications from BDE to dbExpress.
