Tech Tip: How do I secure RAD Server for production deployment? Note: This is not a comprehensive security tutorial for RAD Server merely a tech tip. There are a number of sections in the emsserver.ini file which can help you secure your RAD Server for production which include Server.APICrossDomain, Console.Login, Server.Authorization. You can limit cross site scripting by changing the CrossDomain setting in Server.APICrossDomain to only allow your domains. You can customize the UserName and Password of the Console.Login section so that only you will b...
How to customize URL in Datasnap REST servers In this post I discuss how to customize the URLs generated by the Datasnap REST server. Challenge A major challenge in building APIs when using Datasnap is to generate URLs so that documentation, understanding, and versioning is easy. I've always been particularly bothered by the "datasnap / rest / TServeMethodName" automatically generated by Datasnap servers, because when we share this to other languages it is immediately identified how we generate our server.

既存システムをWeb化するために考慮したい2つのポイント 従来、一般的に「クライアントサーバー型」のシステムが普及していました。自社内専用アプリケーションをシステム管理部が複数PCにインストール後、ようやく利用者が扱うことができます。システムのバグや機能エンハンスメントはそれと同じくシステム管理者がセットアップします。利用する側やシステム管理部はPCに対したくさんの配慮が必要でした。世間では、MEAPやBYODが普及していく中「クライアントサーバー型」のシステムではやはり限界がきています。 Delphi / C++Builder を使った企業内アプリケーションでもVCLで構築された「クライアントサーバー型」システムがたくさん採用されています。昨今ではWindows 10に対応するため引き続きDelphi 10.2.xを採用されている場合も多くみかけます。しかし多くのビジネスパーソンがスマートフォンやタブレットを利用しており、また Gmail や Google Map, Office 365, Salesforce などのクラウドベースのサービスを業務やプライベートで使用しています。このため業務をオフィス内でしか行えない状況は減りつつあり、既存の業務システムについてもWebブラウザでアクセスしたいという要望が高まっています。 そこで、既存のシステム(特に「クライアントサーバー型」) のWeb化を考える際に考慮したいポイントが2つあります。

REST with Datasnap Details in Practical Application Part 2 Previously I presented points of attention to be considered in practice with REST in Datasnap, in this post we will address the project codes.  Recapping the scenario Let's return to what we were asked in the project in question: There is a bariatric clinic that wants its clients / patients to have access to the information in their charts through a mobile application. As a solution, for this partner responsible for the clinic software I suggested the use of a Delphi Datasnap REST Application Server, since your company is familiar with Delphi would be very quick to reach the solution and maintain the system after my interaction. Be sure to read the first part, link to post: REST WITH DATASNAP DETAILS IN PRACTICAL APPLICATION - part 1. (In portuguese)   Delphi resources employed in the solution
