  1. I started with BDE then moved to DBX and now UniDAC and TClientDataSet for non server things.


    I’m not sure if in the future to change TClientDataSet with TFDMemTable (very similar) or a more radical one. Maybe SQLite (with UniDAC).


  2. Thomas Mueller FireDAC? Sure, over ADO->ODBC. Which is tricky, because as long you have BDE installed, it takes over the dbf handling. Once you uninstall it (or goes live on client pc without BDE), it will be served via the windows drivers and everything changes.
