delphi 4 standard, databases on mapped net drives ?

hi! i would like to develop a multi client (up to 100) software. i've only delphi 4 standard, is it possible to put a e.g. dbase file on a net drive and access this together with all clients ? if not, i've installed mysql, which components (e.g. from torry) are the best to manage my problem ? it must be possible to handle big record counts, maybe on some days there are 10.000 and more, added to the database.

kind regards

Hi,

I've used mySQL on several projects. Of course you could use ODBC to connect to it, but I find the Zeos library to be more suited to the task.

Get it from here

I believe you can add the Midas tools directly to standard to give you the components you'd need.

You are going to need a SQL database and not a desktop like dbase for a project like this.
