Creating a mini-webserver

I have an application that I am writing that interacts with a game.  Basically it interfaces with the game through an API written by the game developers and allows me to pull data to my program.  I would like to allow users to view that data remotely through a webserver.

This means I need to create a mini-webserver within my application.  I use Delphi 5 and I know it comes with a bunch of internet components and whats-its.. How can I use those tools that I already have to create a mini-webserver?

Thanks guys.

Hello

   You can use WebBrowser component that comes with Delphi, it's uses the IE ActiveX, so using it you will have all the IE features

if you want more lighter browser that doesn't require any dll or activeX, you can look at THtmlViewer, there's free edition called ThtmlLite, so it may help you

go to this folder, but it is Delphi5 on your PC.
C:\Program Files\Borland\Delphi7\Demos\CoolStuf

There you can see example for small web browser. I remember that you should have it in Delphi 5. I am pretty sure in this.

C:\Program Files\Borland\Delphi7\Demos\Indy\HTTPServer

This is a small web-SERVER using Indy components. If you don't have them:
