FMX is not a VCL replacement

The Wiert Corner – This is more elaborate English version of a short Dutch message I recently sent to explain the differences between VCL and FMX: Do not regard FMX as a replacement for VCL: they are different kinds of frameworks. VCL is a wrapper around Windows Controls. In itself, it has not much functionality: it ...

Entity Framwork and how to solve poor performance on large read-only batches

Olaf Monien – ORMs such as Entity Framework are great – as long as you don’t forget that there is quite a complex engine under the shiny hood. I just ran into the situation that EF performed extremely poor while processing large sets of data. It even threw exceptions that indicated that my underlying ...

iOS “Support” Prior to XE4 ?

Te Waka o Delphi – Some people have taken issue with my chagrin at the way in which iOS support has been mis-handled in Delphi, implying or in some cases directly stating, that iOS was only ever in beta before and so I had no right to expect “real” product to be delivered at no extra cost. I take issue ...

Qualified Enum Reference That Fails to Compile in XE4 (and rightly so)

Te Waka o Delphi – Running through some of my code last night, putting them through the new XE4 compiler, threw up a real oddity: Some code that used to compile just fine, which no longer compiles in XE4 and which should not have compiled before! It’s an odd one, because the code previously compiled – and ...

Use the Power of Delphi Carefully – Please!

Olaf Monien – Now that EMBT gave us Delphi for iOS, a.k.a. RAD Studio XE4, we got a quite powerful tool (not just) for developing iOS Apps in our hands.
