Why do you use a direct connection (C/S) and not an n-tier setup if you want
Personally I now always use kbmMW, a middleware framework for delphi, that
is very flexible and scalable. Also you can connect to different databases
through database adapters. More info can be found on
In a testsetup, the combinantion of FB1.5 with kbmMW and UIB was the best
performing, in a heavy load setup.
