Delphi Prism - Correction

In a previous post on Prism I said its dataset designer does not work with the Advantage data provider. That was not correct. Our legacy AdsDataAdapter designer does not work, but that designer has not been necessary since the Visual Studio 2002-2003 days.

With Visual Studio 2005 and newer, the ObjectDataSource object has removed the need to directly use an AdsDataAdapter.

Today I wrote some Prism tests that used the Advantage .NET Data Provider both directly and via drag and drop actions from the Server Explorer, and everything worked well. False alarm. Let me know if you have any problems with Prism, but so far it looks like a good solution for Delphi .NET developers. I really like the fact you can use our .NET data provider directly, without dbExpress or any other technologies in the way.
