SOA with the "Interfaced Singleton" Pattern Delphi Wizard I found myself reusing the same pattern over and over again in different Delphi projects. This pattern is useful to introduce a logical layer into the application design to abstract an underlying implementation of arbitrary service, and is handy for writing easy to maintain client code with minimum number of hardcoded dependencies. I call it "Interfaced Singleton" pattern and have created for it a special OpenTools API wizard that integrates with Delphi 2006 IDE and can generate units for Delphi...

StarTeam SDK examples translated to Delphi for .NET There was lots of fun to translate from C# to Delphi for .NET StarTeam SDK examples. Both sample projects - ListItems and CRWatcher - are available from Code Central. I'm great fan of Borland StarTeam. Not everybody is aware that it's not just a file versioning system, but way more. In fact you can version not only files, but also tasks, change requests, and requirements and make links between items of any type. There is also a chat-like facility for topical discussion.
