Devart is glad to announce the release of UniDAC 2.50 with a bundle of new components and Free Pascal under Linux support that make UniDAC more effective and really universal.
We have added many significant improvements such as:
- Unified SQL support
Unified SQL is a language extension that has different constructions and allows to write truly database-independent SQL code. Unified SQL includes:
Macro - in Unified SQL macros can evaluate to a different value depending on the provider used by the TUniConnection component.
IF directive - for the purpose of extra flexibility Unified SQL supports conditional inclusion of SQL code
SQL Function - introduce standard for calling common SQL functions. In run time function is transformed either to the corresponding native function, or to an equivalent expression.
Literal - provides universal syntax for date, time, and timestamp literals.
- TUniLoader component
serves for fast loading of data to the database. For each type of database server TUniLoader uses its specific interfaces for loading with maximum speed. For example, Oracle Direct Path Load interface is used for Oracle.
- TUniDump component
serves to store data from tables or editable views as a script and to restore data from a received script.
- TUniConnection.AssignConnect method
shares physical connection between several TUniConnection components
- Support for Free Pascal under Linux
- DMLRefresh support in the PostgreSQL provider
