- 1. Middle-tier Distributed Application Services. Borland physical multitier architecture used in Delphi. Renamed as DataSnap in Delphi 6.

that everything he touch be turned into gold. This turned out to be a curse

- including food and eventually his daughter. Hence the expression "Midas touch"
meaning to be (very) successful financially.
