Multi-tiered client/server application using SOAP protocol

Hi,

I have Delphi 6 Enterprise installed with update Pack #2. I am trying to create a multitiered client/server database application using SOAP protocol. As this area is new to me, I am referring to the developer's guide. It says,

Start a new project:
• If you are using SOAP as a transport protocol, this should be a new Web Service
application. Choose File|New|Other, and on the Web Services page of the new
items dialog, choose Web Service application.

But, the Web Services page does not contain the object "Web Service Application". I resintalled Delphi but it still does not appear. Also, after reinstallation, the Multitier page containing the object "Remote Data Module" disappeared.

Anyone has any idea why this must be happening. Did I do something wrong during installation?

Thanks for your help in advance.

I think you need "Delphi 6 Client/Server" not "Delphi 6 Enterprise"

monir can be right. I don't know for sure, though.

HI,
If you want to use SOAP you must launch SOAP Server Application wizard from the Web Services page
(FILE/NEW/OTHER/WEB SERVICES). This wizard will propose to you five possible types of applications.
As for the Multitier page simply go to 'Component/Install Packages...' menu and check the corresponding checkbox.
Sincerely,
Nestorua.

Hi All,

Thanks for your comments. My problem is solved. Here are the details.

Delphi provides 3 versions
1. Personal
2. Professional
3. Enterprise

Enterprise version supports all the features. After installation of Delphi (without update pack), I was getting errors in loading the packages. After installation of update pack #2, I faced the problems mentioned previously. I think, there was some problem with the update pack #2. I downloaded it again from borland site and installed and now everything works fine.

Nestorua.
The problem was that I was not getting the icon of 'SOAP Server Application' in the Web Services page even though all the packages were loaded. And the 'Multitier' page had disappeared. It was weird but it's solved now...

I would like to get my points back. Let me know your comments before I request the community support for a refund.

Again, thanks a lot for your valuable help.
