What is an SQL Connectivity Kit?

An SQL Connectivity Kit is "plug-and-play" software that enables Windows, web or mobile DataFlex applications to use a variety of standard SQL database servers without any special programming.

The connectivity kit software includes a utility to automatically migrate Dataflex embedded database data to the target SQL database and drivers to connect applications to the selected SQL database.

Technical definition: A DataFlex SQL Connectivity Kit contains server specific software drivers (one DLL for each SQL server) that implement the standard call level interface for queries to the selected SQL DBMS. It also translates between SQL data types and DataFlex data types with complete transparency to the web, mobile or Windows application.

How do I access these features and gain these benefits?

  • No programming changes are required, just install the Connectivity Kit drivers and convert the data!
  • Optional programming changes can leverage use of SQL-specific capabilities.
  • Optional configuration of driver settings can leverage advanced functionality and performance.
