Yes.  Kinda.  I have a small server framework patterned much like fpWeb which 
takes care of most of the server app's logic and plugs into either fpWeb (for 
lazarus/fpc) or RealThinClient (for Delphi projects) where each of those 
frameworks, hands the request off to my framework which handles the request. 
Just to make it easy to switch between the two...

It's easier for debugging too because I can plug it into a small embedded HTTP 
server without the need for apache, etc.

Warm Regards,
