Modify Small Existing Delphi App - Add Execute via Command Line

Existing Delphi Based App. Add support to the application to allow it to run from a command line in order to allow it to run in automation.

Figure A – Current Application WorkFlow

User opens application --> select the XML file to load --> click load button --> review for success --> close application

Figure B – Projected app flow with execution via command line

Execute Automation Command Line Task --> Loader app runs, imports data from specified file and always closes thereby returning control to automation.

Figure C – Projected Command Line

ExecutableFileName /XmlFileName

e.g. \\SomeUnc NetworkPath\[url removed, login to view] /XmlFileName "\\Some Other UNC Path\[url removed, login to view]"

Figure D – Activities performed by loader

Load XML data from XmlFileName to SQL and continue to perform activities application already performs today {example .xml is changed to .bak})

Close load application (in all scenarios regardless of outcome or failure), never display user interface error messages or require user interaction of any kind

Update 2013-07-19
This simple loader program is a working app with a user interface which we can continue to use in our production environment. Our goal is to take this app that works and put it into automation no longer requiring user interaction. The application must always close regardless of errors/exceptions. There will not be a user waiting in automation to click ok to any messages. We are comfortable with refactored code. We are ok with removing/simplifying the user interface to bypass use of LMD tools. The portion of the code that needs to remain functioning in tact is pickup of the file through data saved to database. Any version of Delpi 7+ will be fine. We would be willing to accept a .NET equivalent. A sample XML file and SQL for testing have been added as a zip file attachment to this project.
