Please visit our new home community. The InterBase ToGo database engine can be embedded in applications by directly using the InterBase database engine library.

It does not have to be installed on any server or end-user workstation and it does not require that InterBase be installed on inerbase machine before use like InterBase Server and Desktop. ToGo has no separate database server process running, and the database engine executes in the application process space.

Software Licensing Services – Micromail

The embedded InterBase engine runs faster interhase these types of database applications because network connections are not used and data is not passed between the application and a separate database server. This gives application developers more choice and flexibility in their database design and deployment.

Some applications for the embedded service include small devices interbqse public kiosks, and the lowest end version of Value Added Resellers VAR applications which are built using InterBase.

Only one application is allowed to connect to the database; the application exclusively locks the database file. This also means that no other external client can access the database when it is being used connected to by the application using the embedded database engine. InterBase Desktop requires you to start the engine as a service or an application.

This makes deployment easier. You just copy files into the application directory. InterBase Desktop inerbase allows multiple applications to use a database at the same time.

Interbase ToGo installing/licensing

A common example of multiple applications using the same database is a Delphi application and a reporting application both being run at the same time against the same database. However, both can be used to access databases on remote machines as long as the remote machine has a Interbaes Edition of InterBase running.


Each application requires separate licensing. Interabse Desktop does not have this restriction. The InterBase ToGo edition is available on the following Windows platforms and can access any InterBase database created by InterBase desktop or server editions, versions and later.

They can now include InterBase within their applications by linking in with the new ToGo edition library. This means InterBase does not access anything from the Windows Registry.

There is no need for registry changes because all needed settings are provided by options in the InterBase configuration file. Application Developers can link their applications with an included library containing the InterBase database service so nothing is needed other than this library to access InterBase database files. Once the library is included there is no need to start the InterBase database service, or to stop the service once the application exits, as the database service is in process.

The database file is compatible toto all the editions of InterBase, so a VAR can upgrade a particular customer installation to the Desktop or Server edition with minimal changes to his application.

For more information on developing applications see: Using the ToGo Edition. The location of the InterBase configuration file and inrerbase files such as interbase.

It is recommended that you use EUA which means that you will not ttogo the admin.

If you do not want to use EUA, copy your admin. Developing tobo the ToGo Edition for Windows. Deploying with the ToGo Edition for Windows.

The easiest way to ensure this is to include it in the same directory as your application. If you do not want to use EUA copy your admin. Not needed if you are using embedded user authentication, which is recommended.

Mac OS X Platform. Developing with the ToGo Edition for Mac. In order to develop your application to work with ToGo edition, replace the InterBase client library referred to by the “libgds. The ToGo library, libibtogo. If you want to use the ToGo edition and libibtogo. Your choice will depend on what your deployment goal is. In the first case where you have an executable “ibapp” which uses libgds. In the second case where you want to just have the same application switch to using the libibtogo.

The following command instructs the dynamic loader to recognize libibtogo. Deploying with the ToGo Edition for Mac. When deploying with the ToGo edition, you just need to make sure that libibtogo. The license sub-directory must also be located here. You can control the location of the interbase.


It is recommended you use EUA which means that you do not need the admin. For ToGo deployment you just need the runtime fileset mentioned below; you can choose to deploy the full set should you need to use the InterBase command-line tools and documentation. This opens the Embarcadero Product License Manager dialog. You can then copy this serial number into License Manager dialog. The Default Folder for ToGo. Sp ecify a Temp Directory.

For more information on specifying a Temp Directory see: When you are ready to use your application with InterBase ToGo, all you need to do is copy your executable to the same directory as ibtogo.

If you use this strategy for development you do not need to worry about paths. Also, if you use this strategy you will not need to worry whether any other installations of InterBase are on the same computer.

InterBase ToGo gets loaded using the Windows standard search order. This is important information if you elect to not place your executable in the same directory as ibtogo. The interface to InterBase ToGo is via ibtogo. Keep in mind that InterBase ToGo does not allow multiple applications to use the same database at the same time, so you cannot use IBConsole with your database while your application is using it at the same time.

ToGo Requirements and Constraints. This is on the same lines as the restrictions we have placed with performance monitoring, where only the server edition can access this feature.
