I would like my Delphi program to access data stored a a remote server through the Internet.  I am hoping to use a relational database like Oracle.  This is not a database access through a Web page but straight from a Delphi program.

Maybe the demos will help, located in:
C:\Program Files\Borland\Delphi 3\Demos\WEBSERV

You can use the normal SQL-links to connect to an Oracle
database over the internet.

Just make sure that the TCP/IP protocol is installed with
SQL-Net.

Another way is the suggestion by ronit. Use a HTTP interface.

I think because I want to keep the installation at the client simple and inexpensive the HTTP solution might be preferable.  I can't seem to be able to find the example refered to
C:\Program Files\Borland\Delphi 3\Demos\WEBSERV.  Is this on Delphi 3.01 ?

I dont know anything about the WEBSERV sample.
(I did write a simple webserver in Delphi using Winsock.pas
and the RFC documetns. Give it a try, very educating experience.)
