I'm not quite sure what you mean by "when it arrives via BDE" or
"converting FB1.5 Server", but here goes:
Have you considered IBO? You can often convert an application
automatically (with a program) to IBO's dataset compatible components.
After that, you can gradually move to IBO's "native" components according
to your needs.
