Connecting to SQL databases

Everyone who has ever made reports or pivot tables with relational databases has most probably faced a problem with finding a suitable component that not only performs all required functions but also executes them fast. Flexmonster solved this problem and created Flexmonster Data Compressor – a special server-side compression tool that helps you to increase data loading speed from server to customer’s browser.

Advantages of Flexmonster Compressor:

  • Easy convert response from database with few lines of code
  • Stream large datasets with minimum delay to the user
  • Lightweight and simple format which does not require significant amount of RAM and CPU power
  • Available for various platforms and databases

The alphabet with special characters will be displayed correctly because our Compressor sets encoding to UTF-8. Please make sure that your content-type HTTP header also have UTF-8 encoding:

header('Content-type: text/html; charset=utf-8');

Supported databases

  • Oracle
  • MySQL
  • Microsoft SQL Server
  • PostgreSQL
  • Other ADO.NET / ODBC / JDBC databases

MongoDB is supported by Compressor for Node.js. If you use other NoSQL databases or data warehouses please refer to our Connecting to other databases tutorial.

Guides

Flexmonster Compressor is available for .NET, Java, PHP and Node.js. Follow detailed tutorials for each technology:
