convert database to XML without BDE

Posted by Phil Birell p16812 on March 07, 2009

How do I convert my Delphi programs from using DBF files to XML files, without the BDE drivers? Recently I read that with ClientDataSet and XML files I don't need the BDE (since Delphi 7?)

So that my database programs run on my friends' computers, without installing the BDE on the other computers. The databases are small, less than thousand records, would it become much slower?
