Well, thanks a lot!

Meanwhile, I've noticed the difference in format between inetd.conf and

I've tried the following in xinetd.conf:
service acedb
        socket_type     =stream
        protocol        =tcp
        wait            =yes
        user            =acedb
        server          =/usr/local/bin/saceserver saceserver
/database/acedb 200:200:0

to replace the line in inetd.conf
acedb  stream  tcp     wait    acedb   /usr/local/bin/saceserver
saceserver /database/acedb 200:200:0  

This was from what I understood from the man page for xinetd.conf. Since
this did not work either, I probably misunderstood something there.
