SQL-based formats

  • DBX and FireDac drivers are DK.Delphi specific.
  • JDBC drivers are DK.Java specific, other drivers are not supported.
  • ADO, ADO.NET drivers are available for DK.Delphi, DK.NET, DK.ASPNET, and DK.ActiveX.
  • ADO.NET driver is available for DK.Delphi, DK.ActiveX as a custom driver.
  • iOS and Android platforms support only SQLite database.
  • Editor/Viewer support the same set of layers as DK.Delphi, based on ADO, ADO.NET, DBX, FireDAC, OCI, LIBPQ, and SQL Layers. All enterprise layers are included.

1) Requires Enterprise license
2)General database drivers for TatukGIS & OpenGIS formats were tested on MSJET, SQL Server, Interbase, Firebase, MySQL, DB2, Informix, Oracle, Postgress. However, support depends on driver availability and quality. Support is universal , other databases can be connected as well.
3) ArcSDE formats are supported on SQL Sever and Oracle
4) SpatialWare formats are supported on MSJET and SQL Sever
