Any web sites where I could find information how to make ActiveX server? I would be using it between the client program and database.
I have Delphi 4 (and 5 trial version).

You could start here to learn somethings about interfaces which are a base for everything like COM, OLE or ActiveX.

I don't see what ActiveX (components) have to do with databases and clients. That sounds more like middleware technologies like Midas.

This is part of school assigment. They are using VB and ActiveX server (or component), so I thought to use Delphi + ActiveX. I would use Midas, but I remember there were some license problems with Delphi 5. I have to look into it.

One of the best sites for COM programming is Binh Ly's site at:
http://www.techvanguards.com/
It has a lot of samples, tutorials, tips and tricks.
Its useful for beginners as well as for the pros because it starts from the beginning and covers also the more sophisticated areas.

HTH,
