Thread announcing support for Mormot databases

In my EWB book I have a big chapter where I show how to use Mormot databases with EWB.  Can you imagine, end-to-end pascal!!!!  It's awesome.

This initial support includes both unauthenticated access and mormot's complicated password
confirmation exchange made totally simple - it's cool, it  actually never sends your password over the network,   

The examples include creation, reading, updating and deleting (CRUD) RESTful objects with mormot.  It uses some stock mormot sample servers, which I include in compiled format but source is available from synapse.info.

Unauthenticated access is suitable for phone book type apps with public information, whereas authenticated access is appropriate for most other situations.

To use it, you will need the ewbmormot.* files which are downloadable from my website: http://www.erickengelke.com as the last subentry under the EWB book.

I apologize that the source is a bit messy at this point.

I am currently completing a new book specifically on Mormot, and have a huge section on EWB as the
preferred way to do web access.  It's a huge project, I've been working on it for more than a year.
But the server code you write is tiny and easy and you'll love it.  I'll have more details on it in a month or so.

It will be called Delphi Enterprise Databases With Mormot and Elevate Web Builder
There is an overlap of 50 pages with the EWB book, but the other 250 pages are new to you.

Mormot works equally well with FreePascal on Windows and Linux, actually faster once compiled.  

I honestly have no idea if a market exists for this, but when you see the completed system you'll see EWB was made to work with Mormot (with my little additions).  The TDataSet works just like you would expect.

As always, feel free to Email me if you want to ask questions offline, or post here as I believe this is a legitimate EWB topic.

Thanks Tim, and I really appreciate all your help over the last few months.

This week I came across my original newbie question in the group, where you patiently explained stuff like single web pages to me.  Now I'm doing the same to help you.
