The OP's backend was half constructed.

There was also a requirement to interface to PLCs etc. (using, I'm told, 
the nodave library), the specific problem he'd got was MySQL access 
which- according to him at least- is not well-supported by Delphi. In 
that context I risked mentioning Lazarus, but I think that trying to 
tell him to simply use a different database would have been 
counterproductive since (a) he could then choose one that suited his 
version/variant of Delphi and (b) it was in a private conferencing topic 
dedicated to Delphi, not to Life After Delphi.

So while I use Lazarus, PostgreSQL and (tentatively) FireBird, there are 
limits to how aggressively I'm prepared to push the combination. 
Particularly when the other party is more experienced than I am and has 
been known to wear a journalist's hat.
