I ment I will remove the XML support (probably). The component is designed as an 'in memory' account/user database capable to authenticate users and to store the account data (actually to binary file, or to an XML file optionaly). I need such a simple component for a service application that runs a TWSocketServer. The server needs to load user account data on service start. When a client wants to edit users the server sends entire data to the client, after editing client sends data back and server saves data to disc locally. --- Arno Garrels [TeamICS] http://www.overbyte.be/eng/overbyte/teamics.html > Bye, Maurizio. -- To unsubscribe or change your settings for TWSocket mailing list please goto http://www.elists.org/mailman/listinfo/twsocket Visit our website at http://www.overbyte.be
