There are a lot of tools for PostgreSQL development. I want to propose you one more. Why Lazarus:
- Lazarus is shipped with open-source Pascal compiler;
- it has a high degree of Delphi compatibility;
- availability on a variety of platforms, including Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux;
- complete source code is available;
Go to Lazarus at SourceForge.
Then at the Downloads Section get proper installer. I used lazarus-1.0.8-fpc-2.6.2-win32.exe and lazarus-1.0.8-fpc-2.6.2-win64.exe in my tests. These are the latest releases at the moment.
I have Lazarus installed into C:\lazarus\ and hereafter I will use this path.
Now it’s time for PostgresDAC. At the moment many Laarus IDE functions require the source and warns if the source of a unit is missing. Thus we need PostgresDAC with sources version. Sources are available for licensed users in their profile.
I have extracted PostgresDAC sources to C:\PostgresDAC\.
Install PostgresDAC into the IDE
Confirmation about rebuild will appear.
Choose “Yes”. Wait for some time. After successful rebuild Lazarus will reopen itself. Tada! We got it!
