Devart Team is glad to present a new versions of dbExpress products – lightweight database drivers for fast access to Oracle, MS SQL Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL, InterBase, and Firebird. dbExpress from Devart is a database-independent layer that defines common interface to provide fast access to SQL database servers. For each supported server, dbExpress provides a driver as an independent library that implements the common dbExpress interfaces for processing queries and stored procedures. As data-access layer is thin and simple, dbExpress provides high performance database connectivity and is easy to deploy. Devart dbExpress drivers can be used in the same way as the ones supplied by Embarcadero.

New versions of dbExpress drivers from Devart offers you the following improvements:
Direct mode functionality for Oracle is enhanced
Now database connection is possible not only when SID (system identifier that specifies an Oracle database instance name) is used – Service Name (system alias to an Oracle database instance) can be used.
