Actually it is possible.  I was at BorCon 2 years ago and someone at one of the booths was showing a commercial application that turns any Delphi application into a Web application.  Not quite sure how they did it, but it looked really cool.

There was a product called Pixel Pack I believe that would do that, unfortunately there was a merger and that product disapeared.  You could come really close to what you want to do with IntraWeb ( http://www.atozedsoftware.com/intraweb/ and comes with Delphi 7 ) or  ExpressWeb Framework ( http://www.devexpress.com/products/vcl/ewf/index.asp ).

They allow you to create a web app visually.

Another posibility would be to use the Delphi for .NET preview and make it into a .NET application.  Another posibility would be to make it into an ActiveX form and deploy it that way.  

Maybe some more details about the project you are starting with and I could help you better.

It depends upon your application and it's architecture. I have successfully rebuilt (in D5 Enterprise) a simple thick client database application as an ActiveX control embedded in a web page in about 15 minutes, but it really depends upon how your application works, what controls you're trying to use (Menu's are problematic for example).

The amount of rework also depends upon what you're after in terms of look and feel. If you really want something that looks like a true web application, then it will be a lot of work, and generally require completely redesigning the app (see comments from ILE above). If you just need something to 'work' via the web, then it might be simpler.

Hope this helps,
