What is NativeDB? NativeDB is a set of Borland VCL and Microsoft ActiveX database interface components to be installed into your favorite development environment. These components connects directly to the database engine and are based on the database interface provided by the database manufacturer. By interfacing to the lowest layer, we are able to offer high-speed database access as well as supporting many advanced features not supported by the standard database interfaces.

Our current version supports both Windows and Linux operating systems. A well defined class library makes up the foundation of NativeDB. This class library is designed to meet the requirements of the Borland VCL (Visual Component Library), the new CLX Library (Cross-platform Library) and the Microsoft ActiveX standard. In addition, a bonus Borland dbExpress driver is available with both our VCL and CLX editions featuring direct database access. So far, we have been concentrating our effort to support SQL Anywhere ®, the most easy to use and deployable database engine available in the market today. (Click here to view a Sybase white-paper on how SQL Anywhere and Borland Delphi work together). Still, and based on its modular design, NativeDB is well-prepared to handle other databases in the future.

What is NativeDB Alerts? NativeDB Alerts is a set of server-side external procedures that allow you to incorporate intersession/interclient communication into your database and client applications. NativeDB Alerts is typically used to send notification messages from database triggers, stored procedures or client-side applications to allow other connected clients to react on them. NativeDB Alerts was developed based on our customer’s request. We wanted to create a simple yet powerful messaging system to allow an application or database to broadcast messages to connected clients signaling important changes or events in the database or client-software. A fully documented trial version is available from the downloads section.
