Where is TDatabase?

Once upon a time, there was a component on the Data Access tab, and it was called TDatabase

The Help for TDatabase mentions "TDatabase is especially important for the control it permits over database transaction processing with the BDE when connected to a remote SQL database server."

... and it just so happens that is exactly why I need the TDatabase component.

Anyone know why it is not on the Data Access tab, or, rather, where is it not located, is located anywhere.

If it was removed from the palette, what is the typical replacement technique?

TIA

BDE was deprecated more than fifteen years ago.
Currently the set of components to access databases is FireDac:

Other alternatives are:
- DbExpress (which is no longer developed)
http://docwiki.embarcadero.com/RADStudio/Tokyo/en/DbExpress_Framework
- AdoExpress

- Interbase Express
