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.

Connectivity Kits include:

  • Drivers to connect DataFlex applications to the selected SQL database
  • A utility to automatically migrate Dataflex embedded database data to an SQL server

Technical definition: DataFlex SQL Connectivity Kits contain one database driver DLL for each natively supported SQL server and one driver DLL for ODBC. Each driver implements the standard call level interface for queries to the selected SQL DBMS. The Connectiity Kits also translate between SQL data types and DataFlex data types with complete transparency to web, mobile or Windows applications.

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 utilizing embedded SQL can leverage use of SQL-specific capabilities.
  • Configuring database-specific driver settings can leverage advanced functionality and performance.
