I have created a simple remote application server, and also a client which connects using sockets. I am using Interbase Server. The client does not use the BDE (the Server does though). The client connects and I can see the data in a grid, I can also make changes and apply the updates. On the server I have created a simple stored procedure . I can access this procedure only when I place a StoredProc component on the client. This then uses the BDE which I don't want.
The problem is , I would like to run the stored procedure remotly from the client and see its result. And I would also like to send SQL requests and see thier result in a grid or text box. How can I achieve this in a client server situation without using the BDE on the client ?
