If you are using D4, there is an example under the DEMO directory called WebServer...

I am using Delphi 4 but the professional version, not the client/server version. I therefore don't have the component made for ISAPI (I think it is called TWebServer) or the example you mention.

Do you know if this component can be purchased separatly. If so, is it worth it ?

Thank you.

Even if you can, I don't think the Web-stuff is worth buying (unless you need some of the other C/S components), there is a couple of 3-party ISAPI implementations on the net. When I get to work tomorrow, I'll give you a few links...

I would like to add to my question:

I will access the ISAPI via my own HTTP command from a delphi program. I have to send the ISAPI program a few parameters, combination of Integer and String. I was thinking of using a record then pass the record. Do I have to use Post for that (instead of Get)? Would I then use ReadClient in the ISAPI ?

Thank you.

Sharon I have D3 C/S and the ISAPI support is fabulous - well thought out and very easy to use. In particular there is event based handling of token substitution, which makes it very easy to handle overall look and feel using template pages createdd with any HTML editor. This allows you to ignore the fluff and concentrate on handling the dynamic bits.

It is, however, very expensive to upgrade to the C/S version of Delphi, whereas ASP is essentially free.

The advantages of acquiring Delphi C/S are basically these:

- you can do *anything* in Delphi
- you won't have to relearn the syntax and object models
- it's higher performance

That said, there's nothing stopping you from whipping up a COM object whenever you run into the (multitude of) limitations of ASP, so you could have it both ways.

ASP is quite capable of talking to any OLEDB or ODBC capable database, and there are a plethora of free COM widgets extending its capabilities at www.serverobjects.com

If you can get someone else to pay for the upgrade, get D4 C/S.
If money's too tight to mention, go with ASP.
