Why a Desktop Database?
Even in the times of increasing use of database servers, desktop database engines are still the better option for many use cases because:
Replace the BDE
The Borland Database Engine (BDE) has served us well for many years but now its time has come. Its too big, its too Slow and its too complicated to install. Borland still delivers it with Delphi and C++ Builder but has finished actively supporting it. There is no BDE for Kylix and developers whether they want to port to Linux or not, are forced to think of an alternative solution, with dbExpress only providing a lower level of functionality than the BDE.
dataWeb has a 10 years experience on desktop database engines and is committed to deliver excellent solutions for current software development environments. We believe that an up-to-date database engine must:
TurboDB Engine is the database engine that powers our development tools since 1990 and Is available for the Borland programming languages since April 2001. It has been used by ten thousands of developers and has been still improved over the years.
One of the remarks most often made by customers is "I like it", This is because TurboDB is just the install-and-go no-problem database engine you want. And it has additional features that our competitors dont have.
File formats and your database code for TurboDB is 100% compatible across platforms. This makes TurboDB your best choice, if you are planning to port your BDE-driven Delphi or C++ Builder program to Kylix or if you want to create a cross-platform application.
Many types of applications profit from a non-structured searching capability. TurboDB full-text searching capability is built on an indexing algorithm which creates a database table of keywords and a many-to-many relationship to the data table. This means you can full-text search your table in milliseconds not only by the special full-text search methods but also with standard SQL statements.
