Microservices Security Resources The new hype in Enterprise architectures are "micro-services". The concept to build distributed systems from many small, independent building blocks that are accessible through REST APIs is not new. The rise of container architecture where you can realistically start the whole operating system very quickly to just serve a method call. When you start thinking about building such a solution, or at least demo, one of the first questions are about handling security. Clearly just using HTTPS is...
Demystifying Macros with ER/Studio In the webinar, Demystifying Macros with ER/Studio, Embarcadero Software Consultant Stanley Chan demonstrated how macros work in ER/Studio. He showed how to use the built-in macros and also shared some custom macros during the session. If you missed the live presentation, you can watch it on demand. There were a lot of great questions during the session, some of which Stan didn’t have time to answer live. So he has provided responses to several of those for this blog. Q: In the color-coding de...

Box2D physics engine in Object Pascal There is plenty of interesting Delphi, Appmethod and FireMonkey information published very frequently on www.fmxexpress.com website. A very interesting article was published on fmxexpress about Box2d Physics Engine For Delphi XE6 FireMonkey on Android, iOS, Windows and OSX a few days ago. You have probably heard about "Angry Birds". It is probably the most easy to remember example of an application that is using Box2D. Box2D is one the most popular, open-source engine for simulating r...

Lazy Form Creation Design Pattern One of the most important things about any application, and especially mobile apps, is short start-up time. End user does not like to wait for too long for an app to start. In some cases, if the start-up time is excessively long a mobile app may not be accepted into an app store. I have been building a lot of mobile apps recently for both Android and iOS in Delphi and found myself reusing the same "lazy form creation" design pattern, that I would like to share with you. The idea is not new...
