Following the format of the "Late Show with David Letterman Top Ten list", here are the "number 8" reasons to use Delphi, C++Builder, Delphi Prism and RAD Studio.
- 8. Delphi - Globally expand your app’s reach– easily build or enable your existing apps to seamlessly interact with users and data in any language, currency, or character set with fully integrated Unicode data and UI support throughout. Use the included language support and translation utilities to more quickly create localized versions of your apps.
- 8. C++Builder - Connect you applications and servers everywhere – with C++Builder you can make the connection to your IT infrastructure and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) solutions using COM, XML, SOAP, REST and Web Services. Applications seldom reside in a vacuum, so C++Builder enables developers to connect to a wide variety of servers using these industry standard protocols. If you want create your own Internet and distributed applications at the lowest level you can use the Project Indy components to built every kind of TCP/IP and HTTP application.
- 8. Delphi Prism - Design for the desktop with Windows Forms and WPF - With Delphi Prism, you can leverage the powerful and time-proven Windows Forms designer in Visual Studio, including support for partial classes and choose from the wide variety of available third party Windows Forms components. If you choose to use Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) for desktop applications, Delphi Prism provides full design-time and run-time support for WPF.
- 8. RAD Studio - Windows today, Macintosh and Linux tomorrow – Embarcadero has announced that Mac and Linux cross-targeting support is under development. That means applications built in RAD Studio 2010 will have a migration path with Mac and Linux supported products in the future. The investments you make in RAD Studio 2010 development today will continue to deliver dividends in the future. Using Delphi Prism (part of RAD Studio) you can use the Delphi Prism programming language, .NET and the mono framework to create an application that runs on Windows, Macintosh and Linux.
