MidWare v.16.08.2010

DB-Aware Components > Multi-Tier > MIDAS alternatives

By Francois Piette.

Freeware 22 Mar 2012


Intended to be replacement for MIDAS. Midware is very easy to use and very efficient as it is pure VCL. No COM/DCOM, no OCX no DLL. Just your own executable. The client doesn't need the BDE. The server doesn't require the BDE, but can use it as anyother database system such as SQL, ODBC express, Apollo or CodeBase. And it works on your LAN, WAN or accross the Internet. Both the client and the server can be built in only a few minutes. At client side, you can use all native Delphi dataware components such as TDBGrid, TDBNavigator and others.

Requires Internet Component Suite.
