General

This FAQ covers database programming with Lazarus.

Where can I find more FAQ?

See Lazarus Faq. See also the official website [1].

Where can I find database components?

At the moment the SQLdb components are part of FPC and Lazarus. They are installed by default in all more or less recent Lazarus versions.

Manual installation: if you look in the [$LazarusDir]/components you will see a subdirectory SQLdb. Install the sqldblaz.lpk and you will be able to connect to MySQL, Interbase / Firebird, Postgres, MS SQL and Sybase ASE (if you have FPC 2.6.1+), Oracle servers. See Install Packages for help on installing packages.

Supported databases

Are there other components?

Lazarus and FPC documentation

The Lazarus visual database controls use FPC database code. Please see SQLDB documentation for more information.
