Binh Ly's Delphi/COM website is excellent and full of sample code:

www.techvanguards.com

Also, Eric Harmon has just published a book called "Delphi COM Programming" (ISBN 1578702216) which I've not read but seems to get very good reviews.

Hope this helps

Andrew

well i'll try this URL.
I am getting a little mad, since every author's examples apply only to those f***en Inprocess-Servers (DLLs) But what i really need to know about is a Local Server implemented as EXE.
I hope the fact, that it requires to handle ADO-Connections make my life even harder 10 times :P
