Tested with Oracle 7/8i/9i, Sybase ASE, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and OpenBase, EasyDB Framework is purported to work with any JDBC-enabled database server. Best of all, it’s free for private use and for freeware developers (shareware and commercial licenses cost $149 and $499, respectively).
The software comes with documentation and demo examples that illustrate how to open database connections, execute SQL queries, display the result set in NSTableViews, retrieve and display BLOB values, and execute SQL updates and commands.
