Microolap DBExpress Driver for MySQL (DBX4MySQL for short) is a standard dbExpress driver that provides fast access to MySQL database servers.

DBX4MySQL is an independent library that implements the common dbExpress interfaces for processing queries, without any third-party libraries and intermediate layers like BDE, ADO or ODBC.

As data-access layer thin and simple, dbExpress (and implicitly DBX4MySQL) provides high performance database connectivity and is easy to deploy. DBX4MySQL driver is available for Windows as a dynamic-link library.

When you deploy a database application that uses DBX4MySQL, you need only include the driver dll with the application files you build.

DBX4MySQL driver provides very fast access to MySQL through native MySQL network protocol.

DBX4MySQL driver supports transactions on MySQL server.

The main features of DBX4mySQL are:

  • Licensed per a developer without royalty fee;
  • Access to MySQL server through the native network protocol directly;
  • High performance;
  • Supports latest stable versions of MySQL;
  • All MySQL data types support;
  • Transaction support;
  • Complete fields information support;
  • Automatic detection for the old/new password algorithm (including the handling of the special 4.1.0 passwords);
  • Thread-safe;
  • Native SSL implementation (without any external libraries).
  • DBX4mySQL supports MySQL server 3.x, 4.x and 5.x.
  • DBX4mySQL does not need the MySQL client library, so the distribution of the driver is limited to dbx4mysql.dll library only.
