Barnes & Nobel


This book shows the nitty-gritty of developing with Qt using PostgreSQL, Firebird, and SQLite databases. It also shows the developer how to create BOTH console and GUI Qt applications. Readers are shown how to do development with Qt Designer, Qt Creator, QDevelop, Monkey Studio, and Eclipse under KUbuntu. Like most of the titles in this series this book attempts to teach by repeatedly developing the same application with each new tool set so developers who understand one or only “some” of a given tool set can quickly come up to speed by looking at the differences each tool forces on the application. 

Qt is an amazing application framework currently owned and supported by Nokia. While there are many books available discussing various aspects of the GUI, most give at most a single chapter to database access. This book is designed to cover that topic in depth. The vast majority of applications written today will need to communicate with a database in some fashion, even if it is just to store user entered data locally. Currently there are no books on the market providing any significant quantity of information about how to do it are more importantly just how different your application will be for each database engine.

“The Minimum You Need to Know” is an award winning technical book series written by Roland Hughes and published by Logikal Solutions. Please visit The Minimum You Need to Know for information about other titles in this technical book series.

Make #Qt applications work with Firebird #Database using #IBPP

I quote the article :
In the last post, we have already figure out how to connect to the firebird database in Linux/UNIX environment. In this post, I will use application built in Qt framework to connect the firebird database and do simply task.
To allowing Qt applications connect to the firebird database, we need some tools, here I introduce the IBPP project.
