Can I create and use a database in the same directory as my application and use it (only from my application) with the database components, ie I dont want to go through the Interbase server etc.

You can use local database such as paradox or dbase file.
To use data files stored in program directory, set the DatabaseName property of the relevant table component to
extractFilePath( paramStr(0)) at RUN TIME as follows:

table1.active:= false;
table1.DatabaseName:= extractFilePath( paramStr(0));
table1.tablename:= 'tableXXX.db';
table1.active:= true;
