According to this page, it's possible to use
TClientDataset as an in-memory dataset, completely independent of any actual databases or files. It describes how to setup the dataset's table structure and how to load data into it at runtime. But when I tried to follow its instructions in D2009, step 4 (
table.Open) raised an exception. It said that it didn't have a provider specified.
The entire point of the example on that page is to build a dataset that doesn't need a provider. Is the page wrong, is it outdated, or am I missing a step somewhere? And if the page is wrong, what do I need to use instead to create a completely independent in-memory dataset? I've been using
TJvMemoryData, but if possible I'd like to reduce the amount of extra dependencies that my dataset adds into my project.
