Subject Re: [ib-support] Zeos components !
Author Rado Antloga
Thank's for your answer !

I don't have to use free components. The problem is that my applications
have to support different RDBMS. I have Oracle, Interbase and in near
future I will have IBM DB2. I don't like to write n-tier applications. For
now I use BDE. I tested CDS in D6 but is to bugy. I also tried SQL direct
but I'm not satisfied. For Interbase I tested IBObjects and I think it is
good but support only Interbase/FireBird. It is not easy to decide. I
latest Zeos version and don't found any big problems yet using
Interbase as database.

Best Regards
