What are people using for servers talking to EWB's JSON

RemObjescts, what else?   I'm wanting to list the options in my book, so I'd like to talk about things other than what I personally use.

I built a server with RealThinClient components.  It has an interchangeable datamodule - one for DBISAM, EDB and MSSQL using Devart Unidac.

I know another user on the forum used RealThinClient to create an ISAPI dll, which is hosted on IIS to interact with EWB developed web app.

Thanks,  it's a great feeling knowing your work is appreciated.

I have no power to convince Amazon, I'm just glad they tolerate me.  As I said in another post, I don't want to run my own mail-order store.  Shipping from Canada is expensive.

i had never heard of them before.  Thanks, that's very helpful.

My intention is to use a "standard" Microsoft ASP.NET WebAPI backend, more "service method" calls that process requests and return results, and not so much ODATA (at this time).

Thus I need EWB to send data so that ASP.NET automatically deserializes it into method parameters (or a DTO parameter), and that the various ActionResults and their payloads are deserializable and useable in EWB.

I'm more of a Operating Systems's and network protocol developer.  If you ever used WATTCP or Kermit in DOS, I contributed to those and some real time operating systems and the Undocumented DOS book. I've written numerous Windows device drivers for every Windows release from 3.0 to the latest,  but never successfully started Visual Studio.  

Though in recent years I have done a lot in Apache/Linx Mysql.Postgresql/Oracle world.  I don;t know ASP.NET or any .NET, so I admit to total ignorance about what your paragraph means.  Sorry.

Fun thing about jargon: I was giving a presentation one day and an older woman said at the end "this nice young man says all sorts of  words I know but I have no idea what he's talking about".

Maybe I shouldn't have said that to the same group I'm trying to sell books Smile

I think your book has a fine set of words, quite suitable for anyone
getting into WebBuilder at least.

As for helping with Kermit, that makes me shiver still. I used to work
on Vicom (and did the Atari ST version FaSTcom), and Kermit and other
protocols were sometimes horrible to work on - certainly in those days.
Learned a lot of lessons from that time. That took us to custom
protocols with sliding windows, and multiple channel sending, and...

Much happier in today's abstracted world, but knowing how it works
underneath and being able to debug is a valuable skill IMO.

No worries, Erick, as I've realized my fellow forum members are noticeably non-Microsoft :D  While I started in Delphi, I've been in the .NET world since 2003 and I've lost my footings in Delphi and hesitate trying to retool to a Delphi backend after all these years Smile 

I'm primarily a business logic (backend) programmer and I'm weak in the UI.  The appeal of EWB for me is the easier development of UI's like in the old days vs all this JS and Angular and Bootstrap nonsense Smile But my main strength lies in the C# of a MS backend.

As long as your 2nd edition guides me in serializing/deserializing complex objects, I can get my MS backend to talk to my EWB front end.

As for Kermit - that does seem to ring a bell back in the early '90's... (Not to mention Sesame Street in the 70's, lol.)
