Actually kbmMW is a replacement for MIDAS and a competitor to ASTA.
We are using kbmMW in a project right now, where we have 2 different
interfaces, one is a thin-client in Windows and the other is an ISAPI
for the web. And, they both connect to the same middle layer. And,
that middle layer is configured in a way that the back-end can be
Firebird or MS-SQL(project specs) and the end-user don't even know it.

I totally agree. kbmMW also supports encryption and compression,
which is nice.

Unfortunately, when we were looking at n-tier components(10 months
ago), I wasn't aware of RemObjects.
