Client: web browser

While there are some situations that warrant writing custom web browsers in Delphi, you can generally assume that the client-side software will be provided by Netscape or Microsoft.

Middleware: Web Server plus Delphi application

On the Windows NT platform, there are a variety of choices for the middleware. Web servers are available from Microsoft, Netscape, Purveyor, O’Reilly & Associates, and others. Delphi applications can be written from scratch or with components provided by third parties.

Back end: SQL database

Because Delphi Client/Server connects to such a wide range of databases, the SQL database choice is wide open and certainly includes the major players: Oracle, Informix, Sybase, DB2, SQL Server.
