How to Use dbExpress Drivers to Connect to Databases



How to Use dbExpress Drivers to Connect to Databases




dbExpress is a set of thin, native drivers that provides fast access to database information. dbExpress drivers are available for various databases, such as MySQL, Oracle, DB2, Informix, InterBase, and more. In this article, you will learn how to use dbExpress drivers to connect to databases in your applications.

What is dbExpress?




dbExpress is a framework that allows you to access database data without using any database-specific components. dbExpress drivers are dynamic-link libraries (DLLs) that implement the common dbExpress interfaces for processing queries and stored procedures. dbExpress drivers also provide metadata information about the database structure and data types.


dbExpress drivers are designed to be lightweight and efficient, as they do not have any dependency on the database client libraries. This means that you do not need to install any additional software on your machine or on the target machines where you deploy your applications. dbExpress drivers also support connection pooling and multiple transactions.


How to Use dbExpress Drivers?




To use dbExpress drivers in your applications, you need to follow these steps:


  • Add the unit Data.DBXCommon to your uses clause. This unit contains the abstract classes and interfaces of the dbExpress framework.



  • Add the unit of the specific driver that you want to use to your uses clause. For example, if you want to use the MySQL driver, add the unit dbxmysql.



  • Create an instance of TDBXConnection using the TDBXConnectionFactory class. You need to specify the driver name and the connection properties, such as database name, user name, password, etc.



  • Create an instance of TDBXCommand using the TDBXConnection.CreateCommand method. You can use this object to execute SQL statements or stored procedures.



  • Create an instance of TDBXReader using the TDBXCommand.ExecuteQuery method. You can use this object to read the data returned by the query.



  • Use the methods and properties of TDBXReader to access the data fields and values. For example, you can use the GetInt32 method to get the value of an integer field.



  • Close and free the TDBXReader, TDBXCommand, and TDBXConnection objects when you are done with them.



Example Code




The following code snippet shows how to use dbExpress drivers to connect to a MySQL database and execute a simple query:


```delphi


uses


Data.DBXCommon,


dbxmysql;


var


Connection: TDBXConnection;


Command: TDBXCommand;


Reader: TDBXReader;


begin


// Create a connection object


Connection := TDBXConnectionFactory.GetConnectionFactory.GetConnection('MySQL', 'Database=Test;User_Name=root;Password=1234');


try


// Create a command object


Command := Connection.CreateCommand;


try


// Set the SQL statement


Command.Text := 'SELECT * FROM Customers';


// Execute the query and get a reader object


Reader := Command.ExecuteQuery;


try


// Loop through the records


while Reader.Next do


begin


// Get the field values


Writeln('ID: ', Reader.GetInt32(0));


Writeln('Name: ', Reader.GetString(1));


Writeln('Email: ', Reader.GetString(2));


end;


finally


// Close and free the reader object


Reader.Close;


Reader.Free;


end;


finally


// Close and free the command object


Command.Close;


Command.Free;


end;


finally


// Close and free the connection object


Connection.Close;


Connection.Free;


end;


end.


```
