Inter Delphi communication ways
Posted on 2013-05-15
Hi delphi devs,
I'm looking for a way to let delphi programs communicate across the globe without the use of database.
I'm writing the programs in D2010 at the moment.
Basically i need to send a piece of text (integers, strings, etc) and the remote side has to send a similar response.
What resembles this idea most would be a user requesting a report by a certain time.
>> The app sends the name of the report, the destination folder of the report and the time it has to be delivered.
>> The backend app receives this info, prepares the report and places the report on that specifc folder
I'm looking for ideas, and some code of how the communication would work.
> I'm not looking for a full back-end communication framework ...
Something like this:
procedure Message(ReportName, DestFolder: string; DeliveryTime: TDateTime;
var ReturnMessage: string);
... your code ideas ...
this requires 2 sides: the sending app code and the remote app code.
ideas with existing components (like Indy) are also welcome
I'll probably find a way myself, but asking a question here, may give more perspective and ideas.
