Visual Studio Pro for Just $45 !!

Te Waka o Delphi – It’s true. Visual Studio Professional can be had for as little as $45, though it can take a little digging to find this option. And there is a catch (or two). It’s available at this price through Visual Studio Online. And the first catch is… it’s a subscription. That $45 is ...

Making a Noise About on a Thread

Te Waka o Delphi – I’m working on an Android app at the moment, and for a bit of fun I decided to add a startup sound to brighten the day of every user that launches it. Which gives me another opportunity to present some of the advanced language features in Oxygene that make threading such a breeze. First of ...

Delayed POST Response

Te Waka o Delphi – Way back in September last year, Mason Wheeler blogged about his first experiences with developing for Android using Oxygene. I said at the time that I would look into reproducing his efforts and respond. I didn’t get around to that right away and, as I think I have mentioned previously, then ...

Did you get the Memo ?

Te Waka o Delphi – People looking for a cheap Android tablet have a new option from a respected player: The Asus Pad 7 Although not exactly falling over themselves in excitement (it is an entry level, budget device after all), reviewers are finding a lot to like in this device. But Delphi developers hoping to sell ...

Come on Baby Light My Fire

Te Waka o Delphi – These are exciting times in the mobile development space, especially for followers of RemObjects work. Whilst the likes of Xamarin and Embarcadero pursue their cross-platform abstractions, with varying degrees of success, RemObjects have been focussing on delivering genuinely native solutions and ...

When You Say Nothing At All…

Te Waka o Delphi – This is another one of those posts that has a bit of a double meaning in the same title. First, there is the matter of a useful hint/warning that I think could be emitted by a Pascal compiler. The other is what I have been up to in recent months that I have been so […]

“The Operation Could Not Be Completed” – Solved!

Te Waka o Delphi – For a while now I had been frustrated by Visual Studio‘s sudden decision to be un-cooperative when saving new projects, but have finally solved the problem! Or at least, that manifestation of the problem that was afflicting me. The issue I was experiencing was baffling. Following these steps: ...

Old XML Bug in Delphi Causes New Problems

Te Waka o Delphi – A post came up in recent days on the NZ DUG mailing list, about a problem with the LoadXMLData() function on Android. The problem subsequently was found to also exist on Win32. And indeed, the cause was found to go back at least as far as Delphi 2006. So why did it only come up […]

What is Hydrogene ? Asked and Answered

Te Waka o Delphi – Over the past few weeks there has been some speculation as to what the mysterious “Hydrogene” that RemObjects have been working on may or may not be. Well, that particular feline has slipped it’s captors and escaped the bag. I’m not aware of any official announcement and I ...

DUnit Compatibility in Smoketest

Te Waka o Delphi – To address some odd concerns about differences between DUnit and Smoketest, I thought it would be useful to demonstrate how it is entirely within the gift of a Smoketest user to create their own “comfort” layer, to make using Smoketest more similar to the DUnit framework if they wish ...

Smoketest – Performance Case Visualisations

Te Waka o Delphi – This post is a peek behind the curtain of the next major update to Smoketest which I hope to have completed shortly: Performance Case visualisations. Smoketest has always had two types of test case that you could implement by deriving from two distinct base classes: TTestCase is the base class for ...

Smoketest – Interfaces vs Inheritance

Te Waka o Delphi – A couple of commenters on my previous post have taken issue with my use of interfaces to form contracts between test cases and the test framework, rather than using simple virtual methods and inheritance as found in DUnit. I thought it would be interesting to illustrate why I went down this route. ...

Smoketest – Set Me Up / Tear Me Down

Te Waka o Delphi – In a previous post I demonstrated how the default “pretty name” for a Smoketest test case (derived from the test case classname) can be over-ridden by a test developer by implementing a specific interface (INameCase) on the test case class itself. There are some other interfaces that can ...

Smoketest – Some Differences With DUnit

Te Waka o Delphi – Writing tests in Smoketest is intended to enable a test developer to write tests in a way that describe themselves, without requiring the test developer to add this “narrative” themselves. To see this in action, I thought I would compare some simple DUnit tests with the equivalent using ...

Bonjour JSON

Te Waka o Delphi – I know, you wait 5 years for a library then three come along at once! As well as Smoketest I also want to mention a couple of other libraries that have been published alongside it. They are wholly unrelated to Smoketest itself, so I decided to just quickly mention them in this separate post. The ...
