Yes, then you definitely want to use the iboTDataset module of 5 components
that give you access to all the 3rd party Delphi components like DevExpress
suites of components.

They properly and fully implement all the TDataset functionality. The only
place IBX does a little better than IBO is the MIDAS connection. That is the
main focus of the IBX development efforts and I have not given it as much
attention as I probably should.

We are building a Delphi application replacement for our vertical market
software. All the data logic will remain in the database (Firebird) as
stored procedures, and all access to the database by the clients will be
done through stored procedure calls.

Once the data is returned to Delphi, however, we would need the normal array
of grid tools for its manipulation, display, etc. We would like to use the
DevExpress Grid components for this, but could potentially be returning 5000
rows for display in a grid, so I need something that can sustain that type
of grid interface.

I hope this helps explain our needs.
