This chapter's description of IntraWeb's features has been far from complete, but my aim was mainly to let you evaluate this technology so you can choose whether to use it in your forthcoming Delphi projects. IntraWeb is so powerful that you now have a good reason to build web applications in Delphi, instead of resorting to other development tools.
You can read much more about IntraWeb in the documentation, found on the Delphi Companion CD (not on the main CD). Delphi's default installation includes the IntraWeb demos, including the extensive Features example that shows at once most of the features of this component library. Also refer to the IntraWeb website (www.atozedsoftware.com) for updates and further documentation and examples.
In this book, we have another alternative web development approach to cover, based on XML and XSLT. Chapter 22 is devoted to a complete roundup of XML-related technologies from the Delphi perspective. So, we'll have another chance to cover web development in Delphi, using one of the techniques I like best—but that's also one of the most complex.
