Go Up to Utilities (FireDAC)

This topic describes the FireDAC SQL Script execution utility.


FireDAC Executor is a major SQL script console execution tool, supporting many SQL scripting dialects. FDExecutor supports:

  • Standard SQL commands, such as INSERT or SELECT.
  • Stored procedure language commands, such as CREATE PROCEDURE.
  • Script execution control commands, such as SPOOL, SET ECHO, and so on, coming from Oracle SQL*Plus, Microsoft ISQL, and other script execution utilities, supplied by DBMS vendors.

FireDAC itself uses FDExecutor to build demo databases. You can use FDExecutor as a ready-to-use tool to deploy database objects.
