FishFact (BDE)

The FishFact sample application, using a local BDE Paradox table, available even in Delphi 1, can be opened in Delphi for .NET and compiled without problems. The resulting.NET sample application can be seen in Figure 5. This 16-bit project can be compiled with Delphi for .NET to a native .NET executable without modifications!

Also known as the big spotted triggerfish. Inhabits outer reef areas and feeds upon crustaceans and mollusks by crushing them with powerful teeth. They are voracious eaters, and divers report seeing the clown triggerfish devour beds of pearl oysters.

When migrating BDE applications with Delphi for .NET to the .NET Framework, you must be aware that the underlying data access architecture is still the Win32 version of the BDE itself. So when it comes to deploying the VCL for .NET application, you must deploy the BDE with it.

Frames\Db (Frames and BDE)

The Frames\Db sample application illustrates the use of BDE tables in combination with the support for Frames in VCL for .NET. Frames, an important feature of VCL for .NET, enable developers to design frames as reusable "jigsaw" GUI elements, each consisting of controls to produce a consistent, reusable, and easily maintainable collection of screen elements.
