Re: is it possible to run a delphi application on linux

infect these delphi apps(forms), connects MS Sql server.
we are running delphi apps on windows 2k machines.
These win2k machines are used to just run the delphi apps.
If it is possible to run delphi apps(that are built and run on win2k machines), on linux(fc 6, rhel 5, suse 10.x) then we will certainly ground all the windows machines.

Thanks

Re: is it possible to run a delphi application on linux

Why not try vmware instead of using wine since you mentioned sql?

If you have strong funding, VMware is the best choice without doubt, but you should at least take a look at Kylix... http://www.borland.com/kylix

>Why not try vmware instead of using wine since you mentioned sql?
vmware is the option, but not the proper solution because pc machines are just 256 MB memory, and 1.5 Gig Processor.

>Should at least take a look at Kylix...
yes Kylix is good .. for kylix

Shalom Maaz,

Based on your last post wine or another emulation is your only answer.

The computer is quite underpowered and should not be expected to run the application quickly.

Lastly if there is any unusual code in the applicatoin it will crash your emulator. This is not a sure thing.

Re: is it possible to run a delphi application on linux

my point of view:

- either continue to run it on windows. it was developed in delphi, the choice has been made at that time, it was known to be a windows programming language so now you are stuck with it.

- or, rewrite the application to something platform independent (java or others) so that you can move to linux and even back to windows or another flavour of unix to whatever better commes along.
