SAP Sybase have yet to provide their DAC components for RadStudio XE8. Pending an official release, I have modified their XE7 version for use with XE8.
Download source code here: advantagedb
You can find these components in my public repository at:
Please read the README.txt file and take note of the disclaimer!
[Edit: Ensure you have installed BDE, available from your EDN account.]
This package should be considered a stop-gap measure until SAP Sybase officially release an XE8 compatible package.
If you come across problems, or even better, solutions to them, please register and post a comment here. I’d like to feed notes, cautions and fixes back to those that find it useful.
Notes on changes to original.
1) I took the source code provided in the offical XE7 version of the
components, (installed under program files x86) and put it into a
new package “Ads11_10_XE8.dpk”
2) I excluded adsl.pas as this is specific to the lazarus implementation,
and incompatible with Delphi.
3) I then added the requirements dcldb.dcp and designide.dcp to the package.
4) I then modified the versions.inc file to add the same conditional define
as is used for XE7 (because there have been no breaking changes to the
compiler between XE7 and XE8 to impact this source).
Thanks for reading!
