    • Locate and Lookup
    • Master-Detail support

    • Well, it is a very complete Dataset!

ZEOS library is distributed on the terms of the GPL Public License so it is completly free.

BDE Alternatives Guide Comments:

This includes some code that simulates transaction support on MySQL. Of course MySQL now has transactions, so that is no longer relevant.
