Use a TIBDataset component for read/write purposes. For read-only needs, use
TIBQuery if you need to attach data-aware controls, otherwise use TIBSQL
IBX is preferable for connecting to Interbase. The only reason not to use
IBX is if you know you must support more than a single database type, then
you should look at dbExpress (or possibly ADO).
For most purposes, you need one TIBDatabase, one TIBTransaction, and any
number of datasets (TIBDataset, etc).
