Relevant to: Delphi Prism
Often when you build an install with your favorite setup tool, it is a chore to integrate with your build system. #Install allows you to do so with Delphi Prism or any .NET language. Even if depending on the build parameters to make radical changes to the install, #Install allows you to specify precisely those differences and build the specific MSI file. If you have a MSI file built by someone else, you can de-compile it into code to enhance understanding of its internals, make changes, then rebuild.
In order to use the ADO.NET Entity Framework effectively, you must understand its value-based data model, which is distinctly different from the SQL and ORM approaches to representing and querying data. Programmers who approach the Entity Framework as "just another ORM" often find themselves frustrated or disappointed, a common reaction to trying to force a square peg into a round hole. This presentation examines the Entity Data Model in-depth, explaining where it fits into the context of a larger application, and demonstrates different techniques for retrieving and altering data. Also covered are performance considerations and future directions.

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.
