I would like to ask some questions and i know your expertise & no. of years of experience using Delphi can answer my question fairly and brilliantly.
Im planning to create an application that will use the DELPHI 7 & mySQL. The database (mySQL) server is located remotely, in other words, the network structure in not intranet but WAN. Just like a webpage the database is located remotely.
Now my question are
1. Is Delphi capable of accessing mySQL using WAN connection (over the internet)?
2. Is it SLOW when in terms of quering data? Are there any workaround for the slowness?
Anybody can give me a good advice?
