DevExpress releases beta for controls supporting D2009

Sevensteps – Well, I just got that email that I was waiting for. DevExpress has its first (beta) release out supporting D2009. I now have placed my order for D2009. I hope everything works out as smooth as you read out elsewhere. And it looks like I can finally get my feet wet with regards to the anonymous ...

Proof of the concept is in the eating...

Sevensteps – Marco published a little example of anonymous methods. I already commented about it on his blog, but to me this is the very proof of the uglyness of anonymous methods.To me the beauty in object oriented languages is the ability to create easy readable code if you take care of your object design and ...

AutomatedQA know their support

Sevensteps – Some time ago I reported serious problems that prevented me from compiling my projects using AutomatedBuildStudio from Automated QA. I already had some support emails going back and forth but the solutions was nowhere near.So, I decided to switch to FinalBuilder and installed the trial version. That ...

To further on all the non(sense) news about Tiburon...

Sevensteps – I may be too sceptical, under too much work stress, or maybe I'm catching some flew or the other. But really, is the news about the handling of a password character worth the bits over the internet? (oops, now I've done it myself).See: ...

So, installation time is shorter. Who cares????

Sevensteps – I've now seen a couple of blogs about the improved install speed of the new Delphi version. It may be me, but I really don't get it why people get so enthousiastic about that. Who cares if your installation takes 10, 20 or 60 minutes? It's something that you (should) do only once in a long while and ...

Would you buy Delphi 2009?

Sevensteps – Now the new version is in the open I found me talking to myself yesterday (...) about when and why I should buy the new version. I am curious enough to want to get my hands on it, but really haven't found an argument for upgrading yet. The new features in the language are not the ones that will ...

Exceptions, return value checking, pre- and postconditions

Sevensteps – I never actually worked with Eiffel but when I first heard about it (that is some decades ago, really...) there is one concept that I remembered for the whole of my professional career and I adhered as a 'coding principle' in my own code. I'm talking about the concept of pre- and postconditions.As I ...

FinalBuilder it is...

Sevensteps – As reported yesterday I was experiencing problems with AutomatedBuildStudio. With a little pain in my heart, but in the end with great relief I can tell you that I decided to switch to FinalBuilder.The pain is caused by the memory of some great experiences with ABS. So I feel a little sad to leave ...

Thinking about switching from Automated Build Studio to FinalBuilder

Sevensteps – Some time ago I purchased an update to Automated Build Studio. I whish I never did. I was pretty happy with the previous version, but encountered a problem (or wanted a feature - can't remember) that was solved/available in the new version only. Since I was very happy in the past I never thought ...

I now get anonymous methods: but I really dislike them already...

Sevensteps – The example below was taken from Andreano Lanusse's blog on anonymous methods.After examining this example for a couple of minutes (yes, really it took me that long...) and looking at the other example in his blog, I think I've made my mind up. I detest anonymous methods already. IMHO (of course as ...

I don't get anonymous methods...

Sevensteps – Today I watched a presentation by Adreano Lanusse and David I on Tiburon. Nothing really new was shown from the things we already know. Luckily there were a couple of exceptions showing up as my installation does from time to time :-) And I now know that showing recorded videos using Microsoft Live ...

What are those prizes in the race - (part of) part 3

Sevensteps – You might be wondering what's keeping part 3 of the reviews on the prizes in the race. To be honest: I started looking at RemObjects'  DataAbstract but business has kept me from looking at the software properly. It's not your daily component pack that your can write a quick review about. It's a ...

Impressions from the webcast by Embarcadero

Sevensteps – Yesterday I attended (half of) a webcast by Embarcadero presenting their products. Everytime I attend such a webcast I am amazed that it actually works. LiveMeeting (and all their competitors for that matter) really work and help to do a presentation from a distance. But, the presentation itself ...
