: Hello all,
: Can anyone suggest some reading material/tutorials on creating 1 & 2 tier database applications? I am a beginner at Delphi 5 but am attempting to run a database on a machine on a Novell network and access it from other machines.
In any case, it's advisable to start with a simplified stand-alone desktop app. Nex t, modify this app as to access the database from the server. And finally (if still necessary) split up the app in two parts: one for the "front end" clients, one for the server.
I can't recommend good books nor tutorials, as I'm not an expert in the C/S field. Just one tip: "The Delphi Magazine" has published some very useful articles on C/S, e.g. a series called "Surviving Client/Server". Besides their magazine, each year they publish a CD-ROM with all the articles and code of the previous years, plus a database with keywords and pointers to the articles (www.itecuk.com)
