I am using Delphi 4 pro.
Can I use the embedded paradox and delphi to develop database application on network for small business?

The clients need to use modem-dialup to the sever and share the database. I originally want to use oracle. While it's just to big and expensive for small business.

Maybe it's better to use Interbase or some other SQL server not as expensive and big as Oracle?..

Use interbase perhaps will cause more expensive.
You can use paradox as your database, but you should notice the netfile, it's terrible to control.
I sugess u to use m$ access to do so. I have used them to make some project i found access is better.

if u like send a email : cjcjc@soim.com

not agreed

hi gzzzjymj,

it will be possible have on paradox on network, and i think you have to make thin-client on clientside and a remote-server as server, but don't ask me how to implement, i've never done this. (its just the modem connect, which avoided me to answer this q)

meikl ;-)
