Delphi 2009 Ships!
Posted 12 years ago on 10/2/2008 and updated 10/2/2008
Summary: Embarcadero Technologies unveils Delphi 2009! The next generation of the popular CodeGear rapid application development (RAD) tools for Windows native code development.


Delphi 2009 New Features:

  • Unicode - Developers can now easily expand the global reach of their applications with built-in support for Unicode throughout Delphi 2009 (and C++Builder 2009). Built-in support for Unicode means that applications will look and operate properly on all language versions of Windows and seamlessly support both Unicode and ANSI data. In addition, new and enhanced localization tools make it easier to translate applications to take advantage of specific local opportunities.
  • Delphi generics
  • Delphi anonymous methods
  • Multi-tier DataSnap architecture enables developers to use RAD to build high-performance, highly scalable database middleware applications.  The middleware applications can be connected to via a lightweight, open communications protocol with thin, full-featured clients that can reside on virtually any native or Web client platform.
  • DatabaseGear Integration - In addition, Delphi 2009 and C++Builder 2009 represent the first Embarcadero solutions to bring together advanced CodeGear and DatabaseGear functionality in a single offering. The Delphi and C++Builder Architect editions include ER/Studio Developer Edition to provide a complete solution for designing and building database applications. This integration results in enhanced productivity and time-to-market for developers.
  • New VCL Components - Including Microsoft Office style ribbon controls, Portable Network Graphics (PNG) image support, dozens of new capabilities for existing controls, and the ability to seamlessly build powerful UIs for Windows XP and Vista desktop applications simultaneously.
  • AJAX and Silverlight support - VCL for the Web for creating AJAX and Silverlight-enabled rich intranet and line of business web applications.
  • Updated dbExpress - Updated built-in dbExpress support for CodeGear InterBase and BlackfishTM SQL, Oracle, Microsoft SQL ServerTM , Informix, IBM DB2, SQL Anywhere, Sybase and MySQL databases.
