Hello,
I would like to create a large database applications that
is suppose to be Multi-user. I would also like it to be
a Client/Server app. Does anyone have a recommendation
on what should I use. important issues are:

1) ease of use/programming
2) should i buy a TRUE server program when I distribute
   my program?
3) is there any way I can truly debug my program while
   developing it (without buying a server??)
4) ease of maintenance.
5) multi-user locks/transaction processing

Anyone ?

There are a number of solutions available to you.  1. Use InterBase Client/Server and use standard TTable etc in the app you are developing.  2. Use InterBase with Delphi 3 Client/Server and the new Internet components sucj as TProvider/TClientDataSet.  It really depends on what approach you want to take.   With the new ActiveX/ActiveForm abilities, you can take many approaches.  You must choose an architecture and deveop around it.
