InterBase® enables close integration with best-of-breed application development tools and supports all major development paradigms including Java, C, C++, .NET, Delphi, and PHP. It integrates closely to C++Builder, RAD Studio, and Delphi so that when you deploy your RAD projects to any platform, InterBase® will automatically deploy with it. If you are a Visual Studio developer you can work with InterBase via the ADO. NET or ODBC connectors for easy access to your data.
