Time to Jump into the Delphi Pond?

TPersistent.com – If you’re a new developer and you’re wondering what development tool to adopt you have to decide what pond you want to play in. Don’t be suckered by the vendor offering free conferences, and trial development tools. Don’t “go with the flow” and choose the most ...

Delphi, why won't it just die?

Along the way, languages have come and gone in typical "Flavour of the Month" style, while others that have been predicted to be flavour of the month, have become very mainstream;  Java being one of them.I used to do a lot of work ...

How to simplify memory management the right way

TURBU Tech – As I pointed out yesterday, with FastMM available, memory management is so much of a solved problem that it’s a non-problem.  So dropping a performance-killing pseudo-GC “solution” on us is patronizing and insulting in the extreme, not to mention a massive waste of effort that ...

THMTLWriter and XE4

Nick Hodges – I’m happy to say two things: I’m still alive.  I can’t believe that it has been over two months since I posted. I have been working on my book, but it is sure slow going.  Writing is hard, as my wife says. THTMLWriter works great with Delphi XE4. I’d be delighted to hear from you ...

SOAP and REST – Using GZip with Delphi client

Roberto Schneiders – I did some testing with delphi clients and a Java server. We are deciding between SOAP and REST. I’ve implemented client applications in Delphi using GZip.

NextGen: Delphi’s “Visual Fred” moment?

TURBU Tech – There’s been a lot of talk recently about immutable strings in the iOS compiler, which, as Marco pointed out, is not actually implemented (yet) but is just something that’s under consideration.  And it appears that he’s uncomfortable with the removal of AnsiStrings.  That’s a ...

LLVM for DWScript

DelphiTools – Very experimental support for LLVM in DWScript is now in the googlecode repository, thanks to the efforts of Christian-W Budde.

Of Strings, Immutability, COW, and AnsiStrings

Marco's Tech Blog – Not unexpectedly, there is debate in the Delphi community around strings in the NextGen compiler, touching on string immutability, copy-on-write, the loss of the AnsiString type in Delphi's new iOS compiler, and the like. Some sources are: delphitools.info/2013/05/13/immutable- ...

A very frustrating issue with Microsoft SQL Express

Delphi Code Monkey – Recently I had some customers complaining that they could not connect with our Delphi-powered database backed application, to their database.

More dwsLinq improvements: query sources and JSON

TURBU Tech – When I started writing dwsLinq, I never intended it to just be an integrated SQL query builder.  I did that first because it was both useful and easy to implement, but that was never the end goal. Over the last few days I’ve taken a big step towards the real goal: developing a general-purpose ...
