Delphi Compiler RTTI Enhancements
Barry Kelly – Embarcadero
Relevant to: Delphi
Barry Kelly shows off the new type information, including type rooting, how to get information about fields, methods, properties and parameters. He also shows how to declare and use custom attributes, and provides an overview of the new TValue type. Furthermore he shows how to invoke methods, get and set fields and properties as well as demo an RTTI browser and a basic RTTI-driven scripting tool.
Relevant to: Delphi, Delphi Prism
In this session, learn how to use Delphi for Win32 as well as Delphi for .NET to develop multi-tier applications that consist of middleware server applications and thin- or smart-clients (stand-alone executables). See a demonstration of the use of the RemObjects SDK to define the server interface with the Service Builder and the different channel and message components, explaining their use and benefits, as well as special security details (encryption and compression). Also covered are Data Abstract in combination with RemObjects SDK, in order to build data-driven multi-tier applications. Benefits of using thin/smart-clients are covered in detail including the fact that these are "internet-enabled applications", with a rich GUI, and without the need for a Web browser!
Gesturing Capabilities for New Application and Current Projects
Vsevolod Leonov – Embarcadero
Vsevolod analyzes gesturing capabilities available in Delphi and C++Builder from the viewpoint of practical effectiveness. Benefits of gesture control are discussed for application, when it's the key metaphor of UI. In addition, a number of ways to improve usability of the existing projects for DB is considered. Mouse-driven and touch device gesture trigging is compared on the base of test results.
