Subject Web server?
OK - I have a number of applications using Firebird and
running fine (24/7) but now I need to add a 'web interface'
so that people can use a browser to see the resulting
information. Simple I thought, but at present I am going
round in circles.

Option 1
Modify the code that produces text pages to give formated
This will work but is not very flexible, can use FastReport
to add flexability, but don't think this is the right
starting point.

Option 2
A new application that accesses the database and produces
the pages and can be made more flexible. All my stuff uses
IBObjects so again, no problems working that way. My own web

Option 3
I have Interclient running on both windows and linux and can
access both from a third party tool, but not from the
included test page.
I can't get the new driver to work ( at present ) but I am
not sure if this is the right approach anyway, I thing I
need something server side that builds pages, rather than
client side.

Option 4
Scrap Firebird and use something that is already web enabled
- it IS an option, but not one I really want to concider.
Something that will work with apachee perhaps.

Anybody got any other suggestions, or preferably a stronger
reason for one of the above options.

The target pages in the first instance are simply lists such
as the next set of train departures, or the callers waiting
on a referal queue to be seen. So nothing needs to go back (
at present <g> ), but the ability to select say a time, or a
queue number may be required.

I will need to run from linux as well as windows in future,
but it is a flexible approach that I am looking for.

I pointed stick to push me in the right direction would
