Product description

From the Back Cover

A thorough investigation of cross-platform database development using dbExpress will follow the introduction. Eric will cover topics ranging from setting up a database connection to single- and multi-tiered database applications. Along the way, he will present code snippets and small sample applications to illustrate the points being made. Also, a complete database application will be presented which will compile and run under either Delphi or Kylix, and will contain such discussed features as disconnected datasets.
