Absolute Database - BDE alternative. No BDE, no DLLs, SQL, strong encryption, BLOBs compression, single-file database, high-speed, embedded database. Free for personal use.

Absolute Database: Delphi database with SQL support.

Absolute Database lets you forget the Borland Database Engine (BDE). This BDE replacement is the compact, high-speed, robust and easy-to-use database engine. With Absolute Database you will not need special installation and configuration, it compiles right into your EXE. Make your application faster and smaller with Absolute Database BDE alternative!

Absolute Database is now single-user database system. Multi-user edition is scheduled to be released in January 2004.

An individual can use Absolute Database Personal in a project if he / she is the only user of this project. If your project is public or if you are a company, you must order commercial version of Absolute Database.
