Have you ever wanted to embed an InterBase installation along with user, database and table creation within the installation of your Delphi application? Obstacles, caveats and possible solutions will be explored. Although Wise Installation Systems will be utilized for part of the solution, the concepts should be able to be carried over to any installation tool. PRESENTER Jeff Sohler has considerable experience with Oracle and has worked with Delphi off and on since it’s inception.

Ed ran into quite a problem while trying to attach Word documents to an Interbase database¬ónothing seemed to work. He’ll show us the method that finally did the trick. He’ll also show the general outline of his system and the objects used. This is very extensive with about 50 forms and 50 tables. All of these are tied together with the users always having the same look and feel no matter where they are in the system.

Two medical applications will be discussed. The first application, named Bambi, is basically complete except for annual maintenance and can be seen at www.Bio-Optics.com. Bambi is used for evaluating the health of the cornea and diagnosing eye disease. Bambi captures video images of a monolayer of cells of the cornea of the eye from special corneal microscopes, enhances the image if desired, and allows morphometric parameters (number of cells/mm2, variation of cell sizes, etc.
