What's Next?

This chapter has presented a detailed introduction to client/server programming with Delphi. We discussed the key issues and delved a little into interesting areas of client/server programming. After a general introduction, I discussed the use of the dbExpress database library. I also briefly covered the InterBase server and the InterBase Express (IBX) components. At the end of the chapter I presented a real-world example, going beyond the typical examples in the book to focus on a single feature at a time.

There is more I can say about client/server programming in Delphi. Chapter 15 will focus on Microsoft's ADO database engine. It's followed by a chapter on Delphi's multitier architecture, DataSnap; this chapter highlights the use of the dbExpress library and the ClientDataSet component, although in a slightly different context.
