Borland Database Engine & mdash; is a set of libraries that allows you to work with Paradox, dBASE, FoxPro, MS Access databases from programs created in Delphi, C++ Builder and other Borland products. In addition, it is possible to access SQL through the built-in SQL Links driver, and to access Microsoft Access and similar databases, it is possible to connect external ODBC drivers.

If we describe the BDE work in simple language, we can say that it acts as an intermediary between the program and the database, sending the last commands to extract or change the data and returning the result to the program. In addition to the main set of libraries that include libraries for processing queries, sorting and translating data, the set includes several utilities: for connecting and configuring databases & mdash; BDE Administrator and Data Pump utility that serves for transferring information between databases.

The development of the system ended in 1999, and in 2002 Borland company completely stopped supporting and further using Borland Database Engine, that's why it will not work in most modern systems (especially in 64-bit Windows).

Resumed explanation about the software, from the text I could extract some particular informations such as I could extract information from dBase, FoxPro, McAccess and Paradox. As a user I would like to have some print-screens from the software in order to be more user friendly to avoid unnecessary misleads about the software, and from that creating good positive feedback about it, avoiding some users from downloading it and having bad opinions because it wasn't what they would expect from it, like a set of pictures explaining how easy is to use it.

Software from Borland that runs on a Windows client and unifies database access across multiple platforms. Using Borland's own IDAPI interface, it provides a middleware layer between the client and numerous databases, including dBASE, Paradox, Oracle, SQL Server, DB2, Informix, Interbase and ODBC-compliant databases. It used to be available separately, but has since been built into all of Borland's language products.
