Paradox database is very easy and it totally works on relational databases. Paradox is powerful and easy to use in relational databases. A common usage of a relational database management system is its capability of working with information stored in two or more tables at a time. In Paradox we can create forms, charts and reports to display information. Paradox can be run as a standalone system on a single computer and multi user system on a network.
Paradox is based on relational database management systems that we can use to create quite sophisticated database management systems. Paradox Application Language (PAL) is a programming language which is used in Paradox databases to create applications.
Characteristics of Paradox
  •  Connectivity- Paradox is connected virtually transparently with database and enables different ODBC databases, you can change Paradox tables in any relational database management system supported database, such as Oracle, SQL, Microsoft

  • Data Converting- Paradox fully supports data converting, but conduction is another database which supports to RDBMS. Paradox offers great compatibility with other database applications. You can open a Paradox table in any ODBC-compliant application.
  • Database Size- Paradox provides great flexibility; with the size of its database you can create up to two billion records per table and up to 255 fields per record.

  • Query Expert- SQL is a Structure Query Language, which stores and manipulates information in relation databases. Paradox creates four different methods (Select, Insert,Update and Delete). The Query Expert is easiest for new database users. It takes you through a step-by-step process to create commonly used query models.

  • PAL Object-PAL (Paradox Application Language Object) is an object based event-drive and visual programming language, which can be used to completely customize applications with entirely new buttons, menus, dialog boxes, prompts, warnings and online help. Object PAL can be used to extend the regular Paradox functions or to create non-database applications.
