dbExpress is a database-independent layer that defines a 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. dbExpress drivers are available
for Windows as dynamic-link libraries. When you deploy a database
application that uses dbExpress, you need only to include a dll with
the application files you have built.
