However, before you submit your first commit to a well known project, you have to practice on your own repository in advance. My demonstration are based on the GitHub system, but it not only for it.

Learn How To Execute External Commands On Linux From An Auto Tables For RAD Server API Endpoint Auto Tables for RAD Server is an automated solution for generating a REST API for your database. However, in addition to that it supports defining custom methods for an endpoint. Inside of this custom method you can call external commands on Windows. You can also call external commands when the RAD Server instance is hosted on Linux using the code I will show here from StackOverFlow.

How can you design your mobile app to avoid being one of these casualties? Start out by designing your application with mobile in mind. You can’t just replicate your desktop application and expect it to make sense on a smaller form factor. Each platform already has existing patterns your users are used to: iOS tab bars are on the bottom and include glyphs but Android tab bars are at the top and are text-on...
FireDACの秘密:最後に挿入された自動生成IDとEnterprise Connectors この記事は Eli M. による Secrets Of FireDac: Last Inserted Auto Generated Id And Enterprise Connectors の抄訳です。  自動インクリメントフィールドがあるテーブルにデータを挿入するとき、一般的にはSQLクエリを使用して新しく作成されたレコードの最後に挿入されたIDを取得します。TFDQueryを使用してINSERTクエリを実行し、続いて、SELECTクエリを実行すれば、新しく挿入された自動インクリメントIDを取得できます。 異なるデータベースには、これを実現するために異なるSQLクエリがあります。 たとえば、MySQLには、LAST_INSERT_ID(例:SELECT LAST_INSERT_ID))という名前で実行できるSELECTクエリ関数があります。 このSELECT文を直接実行するか、FireDAC内蔵の機能を使用することができます。 FireDACには、GetLastAutoGenValueというTFDConnectionコンポーネントから呼び出すことのでき...
