C++Builder XE6 multi-tier database app with FireDAC JSON Reflection Welcome to The C++ Mobile Day webinar! Right now I'm listening to David I explaining basics of building native mobile apps for Android and iOS from the same C++ codebase with C++Builder XE6. In less than three hours there will be my, prerecorded session "Create C++ Secure Mobile Applications that Work with Enterprise Web Services and Multi-tier Architectures". In this session I'm going to demonstrate how to use C++Builder XE6 to build a multi-tier database application with DataSnap framework....
Defining custom user sign-up properties in your BaaS enabled apps In a recent blog post, I covered how to add user account creation to your BaaS enabled apps. Our BaaS support that we introduced with the release of RAD Studio XE6 allows you to integrate with leading Backend as a Service providers to add functionality and platform services to your mobile applications. Many applications today include account creation functionality, allowing the app user to sign up for an account by providing their name, email, username, password etc. In my recent post, I u...
Controlling my Philips Hue Lights using C++Builder for iOS Last Friday (January 31, 2014) in my blog post, "Managing my Philips Hue Lights from a C++Builder FireMonkey Desktop", I showed you how to use C++Builder XE5 to build a Windows (32 and 64 bit) and Mac OS X application to control my Philips Hue wireless LED lights. In this blog post, I will show you the screens and code for the C++Builder for iOS version of the project. I reused the code and the data module and built a mobile UI on the main form. I tested the application on my iPhone 4s and set t...
Planning a vacation? Do it mobile REST Client style using C++Builder and Delphi I am planning a vacation during my wife's winter break. To remind me of the number of days until I leave and to be able to see what's happening with the weather, I've built an iOS mobile application using C++Builder and Delphi (I finished the code for both versions and posted this blog while I was watching Seattle overwhelm Denver in the SuperBowl). The UI contains a TTabControl to contain three tabs for Weather, Browser and Settings. The app uses TGeocoder to get the latitude and longitu...
Some interesting RESTful web services to explore with Delphi and C++Builder With the new REST Client Library components for Delphi and C++, you can build desktop (Windows and Mac OS X) and mobile (iOS and Android) applications that leverage a wide range of Internet REST/JSON functionality. In my REST component use I've found a bunch of cool web services site. As I've written in past blog posts, you can use the REST Debugger that is included in Delphi, C++Builder and RAD Studio XE5 to explore these services and then use the REST Client Library components to integrate the...

Riding the waves with REST and C++Builder for iOS Last month, John Thomas (JT) and Sarina Dupont wrote blog posts showing you how to use the new REST Client Library components in your Delphi XE5 VCL and FM applications. JT and Sarina both built examples that use the SpitCast web site (http://www.spitcast.com/) REST API(s) to query surf spots and locations. In this blog post I will show you how I built a C++Builder for iOS. I won't enumerate all of the steps and property settings as you can see some of the design time work in JT's and Sarina's b...

The year in review (2013) and the year ahead (2014) Happy New Year! Last year we delivered more new platform, language, component and library support than we ever had before. We had our largest CodeRage Delphi conference ever. We visited more cities and developers than ever before. The momentum continues into 2014 with more platforms, more technology and more improvements in our Delphi, C++Builder, RAD Studio and InterBase products for Windows, OSX, iOS and Android. Buckle up and join the wild ride into the future of native code software developm...
No time to rest: Endless possibilities with REST for VCL and FM REST is awesome. There I said it. And, like many of you, I've lived through several generations of remoting technologies over the years. What I like most about REST is its simplicity and inherent flexibility AND the fact that everyone is exposing their services this way AND it's relatively painless to integrate regardless of the language used. Basically, REST is everywhere and there countless services exposed that will add value to your apps. In RAD Studio XE5, we've introduced components ...
