We have been able to contact support and gotten a night build change to access Oracle when they changed to allow an off site redundant server configuration.

Pros

The software has built in code to access database servers directly. For example, you can write a single EXE that can access an Oracle database WITHOUT Oracle intalled.
They have the code for OCI built in.
Yes, you can use OCI and OLE DB and ODBC and hit 20 other databases with the same code.
Of course you can access MsSql the same way.
What does this give you?? You can make an Android app that connects direct to a Mssql database over the internet. Maybe you will do REST services later, but quickly make an awesome app.

Cons

I don't like that they didn't give me a job offer.

In stable versions my experience it is good and let me connect to Oracle and Firebird with one component set, containing the features I need.

Pros

Using a common set of components to connect to several databases. Pooling it is also a feature I need.

Cons

Sometimes bug fixes takes much time.
New releases introduce bugs that takes time to solve

Easy and fast to use

Reviewed on 2022/07/27

Pros

one of the few software solutions on the market that has done what it was designed to do without any problems and without errors right from the start. Microsft should take a look here ;-)

Cons

TPgDump component does not provide functionality to backup only some columns/datafields of a table (postgres) and then to only restore these values without restoring all the other existing and possible newer and essential content.
