Temporary Outage

TPersistent.com – You may have noticed that my blog has been off line for a while now.  Took me a couple weeks to find the time to rebuild my machine after a hard disk failure.  It’s still not 100%.  Images are not appearing with the blog articles for some reason.  I hope to have that resolved this weekend.

DX Seattle is Unstable with CnWizards 1.0.9.803

TPersistent.com – I installed the latest CnPack’s Wizards 1.09.89 a couple days ago and DX Seattle suddenly seemed much slower, sometimes pausing for several seconds before presenting an hour glass and coming back to life.  A few times Windows actually detected it as not responding and prompted if I wanted to ...

Installers Lie

TPersistent.com – At work I have an SSD which is only 220 GB so it is almost full almost all of the time.  Gone are the days of lean software deployments, and I am a hoarder when it comes to information.  As a result, I was attempting to install DX Seattle on my SSD and Install Aware told me I had sufficient space ...

So far, after ...

You ARE Paying for Bug Fixes - Do you like it?

TPersistent.com – I got notified today again about the IDE memory consumption issue (RSP-9568) I continually encounter even in XE4, although it seems to be more severe in later versions.  The Atlassian graph is very telling.  It seems EMBT is not even treading water, let alone making progress addressing quality ...

A Response to Nik Hodges - You will pay for bugs and like it!

TPersistent.com – I tried to post a comment on Nik’s blog, but for some reason I never got the email for verification of my address so I thought I would respond here. I find it very interesting that a former EMBT employee still with close ties, would write such a post.  I understand how he drew some of his ...

A First Look at DevArt’s “new” EntityDAC

TPersistent.com – One of the newest ORM entries into the commercial market is EntityDAC from DevArt.  If you are a Delphi developer you have probably heard of DevArt, even if you haven’t actually used one of their products.  The company has been developing Delphi based technology since 1997 when they ...

Encapsulate Your Data

TPersistent.com – What I always fail to understand is why developers (especially Delphi devs), tend to write programs using datasets with the normal RAD approach when all the benefits of Object Oriented Programming (OOP) are lost by doing so.  Datasets were used back when I wrote Clipper programs in 1992.  Clipper ...

Delphi Dead Code Elimination

TPersistent.com – Delphi’s compiler tool chain may automatically eliminate some dead code, but with an older or “mature” product there are bound to be lots of units that are no longer used but are still present as part of a project or referenced indirectly by some other unit. Having a good ...

Making Delphi 64 Bit/Large Address Aware

TPersistent.com – In the 18+ years Delphi has been out, some rather large applications having been built.  Between the number of units developers are using, the size of the component sets installed in the IDE and the transition to the Galileo IDE with .NET subsystems, Delphi now requires more memory than ever.  What ...

Compiling the JWA and JWSCL

TPersistent.com – Recently I decided to try to incorporate Windows Job Objects into a project to artificially limit the amount of memory available to an application so I could test it’s behaviour under such circumstances.  Originally I had intended on using M$’s Application Verifier for that purpose, but ...

Using Object Pointers in a DataSet TField

TPersistent.com – I have seen code where an object pointer is stored in each row of a TDataSet, and referenced by code.  So skipping the question of the validity of such code, how do you support X86 and X64 bit code, especially if you use persistent TFields (use Delphi’s Form Designer RAD approach for the UI)? ...

A Hint About Warnings

TPersistent.com – Compiler Hints and Warnings are an important indicator of the quality of the code you are compiling.  It dismays me that I have often seen a ton of compiler warnings on commercial components suites when I compile them.  It makes you question the care taken when writing the code. Compiler Hints and ...
