Summary

This chapter covered the tip of the iceberg known as DataExpress. DataExpress provides a complete and complex framework for database access. DataExpress provides many helper functions and components that make data-aware applications easier to create.

The DataExpress framework supports client/server applications to n-tier applications using the same components. The component framework is built on top of JDBC to provide maximum compatibility with existing applications.
