Problem: I want to develop a Delphi application using InterBase as a backend. I need it to be able to connect to an InterBase database on whatever operating system it happens to reside. Solution: The information in this article applies to: * All InterBase Versions Yes, this is possible with a Delphi application using either the BDE/SQL Links or ODBC. Depending on how transportable you want the application to be, you may need to programmatically make it possible for the user to set up their own datasources. The InterBase client library will connect to an InterBase database running on any supported platform. Because the BDE/SQLLinks driver uses the InterBase client, Delphi applications are able to connect to InterBase databases on any of the supported platforms.
