    1. Highest Productivity with a Complete Tool Set
    Delphi Client/Server offers the most cost-effective way to ensure high productivity high-performance development for all of your developers. When you're building important client/server business applications you want your team to be equipped with the best, most complete tool set. Delphi Client/Server includes everything you need so that all of your developers will be productive. In addition to the native code compiler, visual two-way tools and scaleable database support.

    Delphi Client/Server includes:
    High performance native drivers for development and deployment on remote servers
    Team development support for check-in, check-out and version management
    Visual Query Builder for visually designing complex queries
    Visual Component Library source code to more than 75 pre-built objects
    ReportSmith SQL edition for queries and reports on remote servers
    Local InterBase Server deployment kit for standalone applications


    2. High performance SQL Link native drivers for server access
    Delphi Client/Server includes high performance SQL Link 2.5 native drivers for Oracle, Sybase, Microsoft SQL Server, Informix and InterBase. These optimized native drivers are licensed for royalty-free development use and application deployment. By purchasing Delphi Client/Server for each developer, everyone on the team can develop and test applications against remote servers saving valuable time. If you want to connect to the server during development, you must purchase Delphi Client/Server.


    3. Team Development support reduces errors on complex projects
    Delphi Client/Server includes built-in team development support for source code control including check-in, check-out and version management. The team development support uses industry standard Intersolv PVCS so it works with tools and practices already in place. By equipping everyone on the team with Delphi Client/Server, everyone benefits from integrated team development support. You'll have increased efficiency and fewer errors managing complex projects.


    4. Visual Query Builder saves development and testing time
    The Visual Query Builder included in Delphi Client/Server makes it easy for developers to create complex queries efficiently without writing code. It allows developers to "drill down" for complex queries automatically generating error-free SQL code. You can develop queries interactively and immediately see the results of performing the query on the server, saving valuable development and testing time.


    5. Visual Component Library Source code saves development and debugging time
    Delphi Client/Server includes the source code to the Visual Component Library (VCL) of over 75 pre-built objects. By examining this error-free source code, developers can learn the techniques for creating highly robust, reusable components, just like those that ship with Delphi Client/Server. This includes source code to all Visual Data Objects for data access and display, system objects for DDE, graphics, Windows controls, file management and much more. Developers will find this source code to be an invaluable tool for learning the techniques of advanced object-oriented programming and complex Windows system programming. By having the source code to the VCL, developers will be able to debug to the lowest level of their application, saving countless hours of debugging time.


    6. ReportSmith SQL edition with remote server access
    The ReportSmith SQL edition included in Delphi Client/Server allows you to create "live" data reports in your applications that directly access the remote server data. ReportSmith Client/Server includes advanced data dictionary capabilities and free runtime distribution.


    7. Local InterBase deployment kit for standalone applications
    Delphi Client/Server includes the Local InterBase deployment kit so you can freely distribute the Local InterBase Server with your applications. This allows you to create applications that support standalone "offline" usage with a fully scaleable ANSI SQL-92 compliant server for greater flexibility. For example a field sales reporting application would allow users with laptop computers to work with a local InterBase SQL dataset while traveling and then connect to a remote Oracle, Sybase, InterBase or Informix server when they return to the office. No additional runtime licenses or fees are required for distributing the Local InterBase server.
