    DB and Connectivity


    An open question to any active delphi developers.

    What database engine do you use and what connectivity components do you use to connect to it?

    Reasons for asking:
    Wondering if the way is ODBC via ADO or third party components.
    Also, Im weighing up MYSQL vs Firebird vs DBISAM.

    Your inputs appreciated.

    Database choice is usually driven by my clients' existing setup.
    For me usually either Firebird, for which I use IBObjects or
    Oracle for which I use, and highly recommend, DOA from Allround Automations.
