First time - Delphi ASP.NET application on MONO

Well, I just ported, for the first time, an ASP.NET application, written in the Borland "DevCo" Developer Studio 2006 from IIS/ASP.NET 1.1 to MONO 1.x on Apache. An application developed during a developer seminar at BMW roused the interest of one of the participants. He hosts his webs on Linux machines with Apache. Over the weekend, he installed the MONO .NET framework and we got started about 90 minutes ago in adapting the application.

We changed the MS SQL ADO.NET driver to a MySQL .NET driver and adjusted the Adapter and the SQL Command to the MySQL components, compiled, deployed and started it. It works great. We tested the whole setup on a Debian Linux in a VM with only 64 MB RAM! Not fast, but fine ;-)

He is getting ready to move from PHP to ASP.NET. There is nothing like displaying data in a browser with almost no coding. Try that with PHP!

Cool! VERY cool! Mono and Delphi!
Thanks for posting that information! Please keep posting informations on Mono and Delphi if availible!

BTW: do you know that Mono runs on IBM machines? There is even an article about Mono on z/Series!

It was Delphi Code, definitely. C# wouldn't be a big problem now, would it ;-)

But hey, as I mentioned, Delphi code is no problem either :)
