Question: Is there a tool that automates BDE to FIBPlus conversion? Are there any best practices to keep in mind?

Answer: The migration from BDE to FIBPlus cannot be automated completely, as the ideology of both products differs too much. In general we recommend:
  • If you use TDatabase, replace it by TpFIBDatabase,
  • Replace TQuery and TUpdateObject by TpFIBDataset
  • Replace Ttable by TpFIBDataset
  • As BDE has no components for transaction control, you should think thoroughly how many TpFIBTransaction you will need and how to use them.

During a re-write of a very large software system we were having some difficulties utilizing a 3rd party grid that we had chosen. The dataset connectivity was very flaky due to the complex joins and updates we were using which caused the grids to behave very sketchy.  FIBPlus was the perfect solution for us. After implementing it everything became so much easier. The grid functionality stabilized, data retrieval was much faster, and we were pleasantly surprised by many of the unique features of your components. We were especially impressed with your pFIBUpdateObject components which allowed us to very easily update the multiple tables we were using in our joins.  Many thanks for your great components.
