Got Delphi xe2 professional ( does not have datasnaps). Im using MYSQL on a small database anybody have experiece working with other vendor database access tools such as Datasoft anyDAC or Devart MyDAC to access the database. Any major advantage to using DBexpress that comes with Delphi, besides a little speed? Any review on which these 2 products or others that are out there? Any advice is appreciated. I have used the BDE for years, but I really want to go 64 bit program and frankly would like to go with a more modern up to date database like MY SQL , simply because 5 years from now I don't see a big future for 32 bit programs (appoligize to those who still run windows 98! lol, I still have an old win 2000 machine sitting in the corner!).
