Smart Clients with Delphi and RemObjects
Bob Swart – Bob Swart Training & Consultancy
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!
PARTNER SOLUTION: From Paradox to Client/Server in 5 Minutes
Joachim Duerr – Sybase GmbH
Relevant to: Delphi
There are still a lot of applications around which use the BDE and Paradox to store data. Due to the fact that direct file access can be over the network, index and data corruption is a common problem. In addition, PC-based data access in a multi-user environment can be very slow. Both issues can be solved by implementing a Client/Server Database Management System (DBMS). Classically, migrating an existing application to a DBMS could be very difficult. In this session, see just how easy it is to move your existing BDE/Paradox application to client/server using Advantage Database Server and Delphi.
Relevant to: Delphi, InterBase SMP, Blackfish SQL
Delphi developers can choose between many databases on the market for their database-applications. Embarcadero offers InterBase and BlackfishSQL - both are great products. Many Delphi developers are facing the fact though, that they have to support one of the “big players” with their application. Oracle is used very often in big environments and then it's good when the developer can say: "Oracle database, no problem." This session opens the door to this database, explain the basics, what is different from smaller databases and how the databases tools from Embarcadero can help you to produce an excellent product in a very efficient way with Delphi for Oracle databases.
