WANTED: Delphi guy for tiny app
« on: September 19, 2006, 02:17:15 PM »
Hi Coders :)

I have a question which doesn't really fit to the Coding Snack section, so I post it here.
Has anyone of you expirience with "Absolute Database" from ComponentAce (Delphi / C++)? The Download for personal use is free, but it does not work with Delphi Personal Edition (which is the only one I have). I need a simple commandline App, which allows me to connect to a DB, fire some queries and getting back the resultset. Background info: I use a PIM which does not offer automatic exports and syncing. But I know that the Data is stored in an AbsolutDB Database. ODBC is not an option :(. I figure something like this

export -dbfile="../../pim.db" -queryfile="../export.sql" -outfile="../export.xml"

The Outfile could be as simple as
<resultset>
    <row>
        <column_name1>value</column_name1>
        <column_name2>value</column_name3>
        <column_name3>value</column_name3>
    </row>
</resultset>

So the question is: Did anyone know a tool which provides me this? Or is someone in the right mood coding the little thing?

I can code it with C++ Builder.
If you like, I will code and try to finish soon.
And i have a question: Does anyone know which embeded database engine is best in performance and easy to use with Delphi/C++ Builder?.

Hi Crono,
I will make it for you, hopefully early next week.
But I think Absolute Database has password protected feature, so you must have the password to open if the database file is password protected.

Hi Crono,
Here is the program, see the test.bat file for example of how to use it.
