Can I use my ObjectPal code with sql database?

Can I use my ObjectPal code with sql database?

Can I use my ObjectPal code with sql database?


I am thinking of replacing the Paradox tables in a system with a sql database, such as ms sqlserver. Has anyone experience with that? Is it possible to reuse the ObjectPal code?

The system works a little bit slow now and we hope that it gets faster with another database. There are 4 users that want to use terminal server.

With regards

RE: Can I use my ObjectPal code with sql database?

Hello Safirlaila

I have done some work with this.  I will itemise my thoughts for you.

1.  I used a package called Full Convert to convert paradox to MS SQL Server.  This worked a treat.


2.  I was using Paradox 9 and it had a tendency to bomb out - ie completely vanish without warning if it didn't like what I was trying to do.

3.  If you have tableframe bound forms, it's not a good idea to just swap out paradox for SQL server.

4.  Most if not all your code should work, but...

5.  There's not a lot of help out there, but this link helped me...


6.  I never completed my conversion.  Company politics saw to that.  And if I'm honest, I'm not sorry, as it was proving a strain to make a very large application 100% GPF proof.

Hope this helps
