Subject RE: [IBO] Firebird Server check
Author Vahan Yoghoudjian
I would like to run things in the ideal way, which I think as you
suggested would be to run the server on a separate machine, but sometimes we
have to give up to the needs of customers who always think to economize and
have one machine less in their offices.
Some customers are very open and comprehensive but others no (especially
in the market around me), all those technical reasons to have a server on a
separate machine means nothing to them. And since the customer is always
right, I think sometimes we have to "lean" in front of them...

Coming back to your suggestion, is it possible to have one compiled
version of my application that checks if the server is embedded or not and
run accordingly?

Thanks for your reply

It is possible to compile two versions of your application, one using
the embedded server and one the client, they will work the same. So the
choice is up to you when it comes to management of installations.

Personally I prefer to run the server on it's own, then I can get in and
tidy things via a remote connection, something that is not available
with the embedded version. It will depend on how YOU want to run things ;)
