*Where this package relies on other packages, the additional packages are listed
dbfServer provides instant Client/Server capability to most Xbase++ programs which currently
directly access .DBF files. In many applications, simply add an #include statement to each
source file and link with the supplied DLL, run the server software, and your program will
automatically route all database activity through the server.
The server itself is transparent to the client program - if your code generates an error
(such as when storing an incorrect data-type to a field), the error is handled by the client
and not the server. Which is how it should be.
All database access functions are mapped to routines which pass the request on to the server.
'Instant' Client/Server capability in many cases for existing programs which need to access DBF tables
Transparent access to databases via the server
Any DBF table visible from the server machine can be accessed by any client program
Errors handled transparently - errors are passed back to and handled by the client program
Server provides information on which clients are connected and which files they have open
Remote Procedure calls - an analog to Stored Procedures. Get the server to perform complex
procedures for you.
