Firemonkey+SDAC+iOS?

Post by Ludek » Thu 13 Sep 2012 09:19

Hi, is there some possibility to develop iOS applications using SDAC? I don't expect placing SDAC components to firemonkey forms, but some simple solution using server-side programming with SDAC? Perhaps even some nice tutorial? :)
Thanks for info, Ludek.

Hello,

To work with SQL Server, SDAC uses either OLEDB or SQL Native Client provider which do not support Mac OS and iOS. That is why SDAC does not and will not support Mac OS and iOS.

I understand that, I meant some 3-layer architecture, where the middle layer runs on win machine and is built with SDAC. Is it possible? If so, is it "RAD" enough? Do you have perhaps even some example?
If not, do you recommend some other product to build such DB-aware, MS-SQL based apps for iOS?

It is possible, you can use the DataSnap technology for that. You can find DataSnap sample applications (that are installed with RAD Studio) by choosing Start->Programs->Embarcadero RAD Studio->Samples->DataSnapXE. For more information, please refer to http://docwiki.embarcadero.com/RADStudi ... plications
