Article: Accessing DB2 Universal Database Tables with Delphi for .NET

By: Bob Swart

Abstract: Bob Swart shows how Borland Delphi 8 for the Microsoft .NET Framework lets you build native .NET applications that connect to IBM DB2 UDB tables, display the data in a DataGrid, and edit, apply, or undo changes in the database tables.

In this article for the IBM DB2 - Borland web portal (in cooperation with IBM and Borland), I show how Borland Delphi 8 for the Microsoft .NET Framework lets you build native .NET applications that connect to IBM DB2 UDB tables, display the data in a DataGrid, and edit, apply, or undo changes in the database tables.
As data access technology, I use both dbExpress - a cross-platform data access framework - and the new Borland Data Providers for ADO.NET, both of which contain drivers for DB2 UDB.

See http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/db2/library/techarticle/dm-0312swart1/index.html for the article, or http://www.drbob42.com/IBM for a complete list of articles about using DB2 with Borland RAD tools (like Delphi, C++Builder, Kylix, C#Builder and now Delphi for .NET).
