Converting from BDE to sdac

Post by Seanrx » Mon 18 Dec 2006 03:42

I have an application wiht 100's of TQuery, TTable and TStoredProc components. I am evaluating the feasibility of converting to sdac. Is there any easy way to do this?

I seem to recall mention of a wizard or tool to helk, but i can't find it in the trial version.

SDAC provides special Wizard to simplify conversion of already existent projects. This wizard replaces BDE/ADO-components of the specified project (*.dfm and *.pas files) to SDAC.
You can find Migration Wizard in the main menu of the Delphi or C++ Builder IDE: SDAC (or SQL Server) | BDE Migration Wizard

If I may add:

We have done a full conversion to SDac of over 500 applications with probably thousands of query overall sucessfully. We have run into some problems with some non standard BDE code, but nothing that we can't handle. Be aware that there are some advanced functions in TMSUpadateSQL that are missing and the behavior of the TMSStoredProc differs slighly from the TStoredProc. Overall, there was no show stopping problems.
