thanx in advance.
A DataSnap server is one option, you can write an ISAPI DLL, that's another. You can run either on an IIS server, so I suggest you investigate both options and decide from there. It depends on what you want to provide, how do you want your data to be accessible to others?
we want to use IIS server
Mr.pritaeas sir i am waiting for your response
how do you want your data to be accessible to others?
First answer this.
only to see others my data
View data on a webpage, SOAP, REST...
yes exactly sir
YOU have to make that choice, not me. Although I'd choose REST, which would be easy to implement using DataSnap.
i want to use SOAP
ok then plz guid me through about how to use Datasnap to publish my data in webpage
i also choose REST using DAtasnap
sir would u like to share me REST component i ahve not install it in my pc
What version of Delphi are you using? I think you'll need at least Delphi 2009.
sir it is Delphi 2007 in my pc
have you any web address where to download delphi 2009 completely.
Not sure if 2009 is still available, latest version is XE3.5 I think. You can buy it from Embarcadero.
In 2004, I used Delphi 7 when I developed an ISAPI application. I stayed away from the IntraWeb components and went with components from Developer's Express. I was very impressed with their level of customer service. My back end was SQL Server and the ISAPI was on an windows server machine running IIS. I would suggest that you possibly investigate that route.... going with DevExpress....
Here is a link to help out:
They are still around, unlike so many other components vendors and have components supporting Delphi from version 7 up through XE2..... I have both... :-)
They are up to XE4... goodness I do not remember XE3 !... Here is a ink for info:
Have fun... IHTH...
