I'm in charge of maintaining an OLEDB provider written in Delphi 5, that uses the OPTK 101 development kit, which dates circa 2002.
The current code has give us headaches for years. Either it was purely implemented, or the development kit does not provide so much base to grow. I can't tell since this is a project among many others I have with this contractor.
Now, the boss want me to move all that development to Delphi XE.
I'm sort of want to start from scratch, i.e. not use that OPTK library, unless I can find an update, or replace with a very good one.
I'm asking for places to start reading, and learning about OLEDB providers.
I'd really appreciate any guidelines.
