7 days left - special offers for Delphi, C++Builder, RAD Studio developers!

Posted by on in Blogs
There are only 7 days left to take advantage of the Delphi, C++Builder and RAD Studio special offers. The last day to take advantage of the offers is June 28, 2010. Following the format of the "Late Show with David Letterman Top Ten list", here are the "number 7" reasons to use Delphi, C++Builder, Delphi Prism and RAD Studio.

  • 7. Delphi - Build in quality – Delphi provides developers with a rich, full featured debugger that peers into generated code all the way down to the actual assembler. Developers can set conditional breakpoints, view stack traces, track variables, inspect the depths of any object, and peek into the CPU itself. In addition, Delphi extends the developer tool chain to support unit testing, enabling developers to write test driven code and capture bugs before they even make it into the build.

  • 7. C++Builder - Reach more user desktops – with C++Builder, you can support multiple Windows desktops without worrying about the specific Windows API details of each version. Your user interfaces can take advantage of new Windows 7 and Windows Vista elements like ribbon controls while still supporting users on previous versions back to Windows 2000.

  • 7. Delphi Prism - Bring new power to your Web applications - For Web application development, Delphi Prism provides full support for ASP.NET and for Silverlight when installed into Visual Studio. Delphi Prism developers can use the full extent of the Visual Studio designers for these platforms as well as the entire eco-system of third-party components for these web development platforms.

  • 7. RAD Studio - Work with all your data – RAD Studio provides lean, native, high performance access to all the popular database management systems including Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, SQL Anywhere, InterBase, Firebird, IBM DB2, Informix, and more as well as supporting standard ADO (using DBGo for ADO), ODBC and ADO.NET (using Delphi Prism) connectivity.  With ClientDataSet you can also process XML data and save local tables and fields to XML and binary format files.  Using a robust, powerful database access framework, developers can easily access, create, read, update and delete data with ease, either from visual controls or in code.
