Want more…RAD Studio XE2

Thirty-one posts in the thirty-one days in July.  Each day a new word for the "Want more…" series.  All of the words, all of the posts, all of the links and all of the hints all leading up to tonight.  You asked what it was all about.  You posted comments and sent me emails asking about products, technologies, languages, and Embarcadero plans.  I had to say "all good things come to those who wait".  Well, the time is now to open up the curtain.

Tonight, we launched our RAD Studio XE2 World Tour page with information about the upcoming product releases, product features, and dates for our worldwide tour stops.  The biggest and best Delphi, C++Builder, RadPHP and RAD Studio release (since forever) is coming soon.

With RAD Studio XE2, you will be able to create 64-bit Windows Delphi applications to take advantage of the latest hardware, access more memory, build 64-bit server applications, and push the performance envelope. And with FireMonkey™, the new GPU-powered next-generation application platform, you’ll be able to create visually stunning HD and 3D business applications, using Delphi and C++, that are more immersive and interactive than anything on the market and deploy them to Windows and Mac..

Embarcadero RAD Studio XE2 includes Delphi XE2, C++Builder XE2, RadPHP XE2, Prism XE2, an expanded developer toolbox, and more.  We’ve already shown you a sneak preview video of our upcoming 64-bit native code compiler, Delphi for 64-bit Windows.

With the Delphi 64-bit compiler:

  • You recompile your projects to create 64-bit versions of executables, DLLs, packages, and other compilation targets.
  • Use your same source code and project files - just select an additional platform to build for in the project window
  • Use the same Windows API calls in your code
  • Use the same Runtime Library classes and functions
  • Use the same VCL components and non-visual components

You will find the details, dates, presenter, and locations for the world tour at http://www.embarcadero.com/world-tour.  Tonight, and throughout the month of August, you’ll continue to hear more about what you’ll see on all of the stops on the global tour.  It all starts, live, in Auckland New Zealand this Thursday, August 4th at 9am local time.

On the RAD Studio XE2 World Tour you will learn how to:

  • Create GPU-powered FireMonkey applications that will keep your customers engaged
  • Build 64-bit Delphi applications to take advantage of the latest hardware
  • Create a single application and target both Windows and OS X
  • Extend your multi-tier DataSnap applications with new mobile and cloud connectivity in RAD Cloud
  • Connect any visual element to any type of data using LiveBindings™
  • Modernize the look and feel of your Windows applications with VCL styles
  • Create mobile-optimized web applications and standalone apps for iOS and Android devices using RadPHP

With Delphi and C++Builder in RAD Studio, you can write an app once and compile it for Windows and Mac. C++Builder apps can be compiled for Windows and Mac. Need apps for the web? RadPHP has you covered with a full visual web and PHP development solution. And it’s all done with the power and speed of component-based visual development that saves you time while still giving you full access to source code and hardware when you need it.

When you use RAD Studio, your applications get high-speed connectivity to popular databases. Create multi-tier applications with Windows servers and support for clients on multiple operating systems. You can also connect with a broad variety of data and services and to Amazon and Microsoft clouds.

Use RadPHP XE2 to create mobile optimized web applications that work on all types of mobile devices with elements that behave similar to native mobile apps. Take advantage of touch optimized layouts, user interface elements, and professional looking theming using HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript on the client and PHP on the server in an easy-to-use and visual way that only RadPHP can offer.

Stay tuned to this blog, other Embarcadero blogs, and our Embarcadero web site for additional product details throughout this month.  To those of you who live in New Zealand, you will be the absolute first developers on the planet earth to see it live.  Malcolm Groves and Damien Bootsma will be your guides to the next generation of business application development.  I wish I could be there, but you will be in good hands with Malcolm and Damien.

Register today for free live event near you!

You can also meet the RAD Studio XE2 team at Delphi Live 2011 in San Jose, California, USA from September 12-14, 2011.

    Excellent,

    I’m quite excited about FireMonkey GPU engine, that looks like something that might give Delphi users an edge in data visualisation. Also, compiling for both Windows and OS/X is impressive, I didn’t know about that.

    The best part - 64bit computing. I’ve been using FreePascal to get 64bit code, it’s great that Delphi is getting this very important compiler target - we really need it.

    Also, it would be great if we had a South African event - there are a lot of Delphi and C++Builder users in Africa, we don’t want to get left behind!

    Free Live event? In Germany all events cost 30 Euro!
    Is it the same story as with the software? In the US its always cheaper.
    Never the less: Looking forward to the new XE2!

    There will be more registration links added to the World Tour page as these days progress. We’re still locking in some of the locations and then the URLs will turn on. Stay tuned to the World Tour page for additional cities and events.

    Our partners will also be doing events in different cities. We’ll be adding those cities too. Will check on specific countries that are mentioned above. I hope we can get up to more than 100 cities around the world as we move through August.

  9. David I | August 2, 2011 at 7:32 am | Permalink

    Cities I will be visiting in September include: Tokyo, Kobe, Osaka, Cologne, Moscow, Warsaw, and Amsterdam. I wish I could go everywhere, but until we have Star Trek transporter beams, I’ll have to keep using jets.

    The R&D team and many Delphi experts will also be at the Delphi Live 2011 conference in San Jose, September 12-14. http://delphilive.com/

    We’ll also have some online events in August and September to get "in front" of you who can’t come to one of the city stops.

    > Jennifer commented:

    We have Delphi, RadPHP, and Prism - before we had Delphi, Delphi for PHP, Delphi Prism - the renaming/focusing is so that each language has its own name, identity, language, components, etc. Makes it easier to talk about each one.

    > Also, any new features in C++Builder? C++11?

    No C++0X - other than what we have done in the past. We are working on next generation C++ that will be totally compliant for the future. The big items for C++ are Macintosh OS X compiler, FireMonkey, and some library work. C++ Audits and Metrics are also added in this release for static analysis.

    We use the Delphi/C++ Windows IDE. There is a new Platform project node. If you are building a console application or a FireMonkey application you can choose Windows or OSX. You design your UI, add non-visual components, add dbExpress components and then compile/build. You can debug on Windows for the windows version and we have a platform assistant (via IP address and port) that copies the OSX app to a Mac for deploy/debug. All you have to do is build, set a breakpoint, and hit run with debugging and you are testing.

    I have a MacBook Pro and use VMWare Fusion 3.1.3 to run the IDE on the Mac and then debug/deploy from the Windows guest OS to the Mac host OS to test and run. Another option would be to have a Windows computer and a Mac mini to debug.

    Of course you’ll need components compiled with the new Delphi OSX compiler for any that you use. We have been working with our technology partners so that they can get their components ready for Win32, Win64 and OSX.

    VCL - absolutely there for Windows development using Delphi 32-bit, Delphi 64-bit and C++ 32-bit. Styles added to VCL so that you can modernize all visual VCL controls :)

    FireMonkey - use it for cross platform GUI/CPU/GPU development on Windows and OS X (and other platforms in the future).

    > Future Delphi writes:

    Build your RadPHP server application using components and then "compile" the client application for iOS and Android. RadPHP RCPL has components for generating the JavaScript, HTML and CSS for you. RadPHP IDE has the integration to take the client side and compile/deploy it to the devices. Your PHP server side still is involved working with the mobile client. Come to our world tour stops and see it in action :)

    Is FireMonkey then considered a CLX then, David, sort of…?

  23. David I | August 3, 2011 at 8:21 am | Permalink

    > Jennifer Kuiper writes:

    CLX is long, long gone and is waaaay ancient compared to what we are going to release with FireMonkey.

    FireMonkey is completely new and different - different architecture, different implementation, HD and 3D support (Direct2D, Direct3D, OpenGL), and more. GPU support and more.

    There is no comparison of relationship between the two - no one will be confused when they see FireMonkey’s breadth and depth of platform support. There’s even a TPlatform class :)

  24. Jennifer Kuiper | August 3, 2011 at 8:45 am | Permalink

    David, I still have Kylix 3 running on RedHat 7.1. :)

    OK, 2 more for the road then:
    - Will C++Builder really eventually get a 64 bit compiler, or… :(
    - Can you develop 32, 64 or 32/64 bit applications using FireMonkey?

  25. Future Delphi fan | August 4, 2011 at 1:46 am | Permalink

    David, so FireMonkey is almost like cross platform WPF for Delphi :)

  27. David Intersimone | August 5, 2011 at 12:20 pm | Permalink

    > Kobus Smit writes: David, so FireMonkey is almost like cross platform WPF for Delphi

    FireMonkey is a next generation application platform for building business applications. The fact that you can compile your apps for Windows, OS X, and iOS is just one aspect of the application platform. Other cross platform solutions do much less and usually restrict you to some lowest common denominator implementation on each platform. FireMonkey gives you full access to the operating system, full access to databases, full access to the hardware and more.

    If you want compare cross platform frameworks or platform specific frameworks - then you can lump qt, wpf and others together. But FireMonkey is not a cross platform framework.

    Jennifer et al:

    1) We are working on the next generation C++Builder compiler. When the work is completed - we will have 32-bit, 64-bit, and non-Intel chip targeting and much more C++ 2011 support. When? When it is ready of course.

    2) With FireMonkey in Rad Studio XE2 you can develop:

    a) Delphi 32-bit Windows and Delphi 64-bit Windows FireMonkey Applications

    b) Delphi 32-bit OS X FireMonkey Applications

    c) Delphi iOS FireMonkey Applications - using a special version of the Free Pascal Compiler/RTL/FireMonkey until our next generation Delphi compiler is completed.

    d) C++Builder 32-bit Windows FireMonkey Applications

    e) C++Builder 32-bit OS X FireMonkey Applications

    There are rumors circulating that using FireMonkey sacrifices the ability of the compiled app to run under RDP or XenApp. Can you confirm or debunk this rumor?

  32. David Intersimone | August 7, 2011 at 8:25 am | Permalink

    Magne Rekdal writes - "There are rumors circulating that using FireMonkey sacrifices the ability of the compiled app to run under RDP or XenApp. Can you confirm or debunk this rumor?"

    FireMonkey applications use Direct2D and Direct3D on Windows. FireMonkey applications use OpenGL on OS X and OpenGL/ES on iOS. FireMonkey gives you all the platform support you need to build native applications for each platform and you can also still use all of the underlying operating system, hardware and other platform pieces and parts you need in your application. Nothing is sacrificed. You get the RAD, native code speed, and the platform support.

    Whether a FireMonkey application will run on RDP, XenApp and other remote desktop, virtual pc/vm, and other remoting/virtualizing software depends on what those systems support on each platform they connect to.

    I choose to focus on what the FireMonkey application platform targets and uses. I supposed I could have asked the questions about why don’t RDP, XenApp and other connective software support everything that applications can use natively on the platform?

    So far, I have found the following articles about remoting and DirectX and GPU:

    Hardware Considerations for RemoteFX: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff817602(WS.10).aspx
    3D graphics acceleration over Remote Desktop: http://www.virtualdub.org/blog/pivot/entry.php?id=208

    Q&A: Microsoft RemoteFX and Remote Desktop Session Host Servers: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/rds/archive/2011/03/25/q-amp-a-microsoft-remotefx-and-remote-desktop-session-host-servers.aspx

    Thread: Configuring Rich Graphical Application on XenApp: http://forums.citrix.com/message.jspa?messageID=1571681

    In any case - we’ll do some more testing and create a complete list of RDP, VNC and other software that supports applications that use GPU(s), DirectX and Open GL and post the results.

    Spread the word about what FireMonkey applications use to render the GUI - and everyone should be able to understand what platforms and software FireMonkey applications will run on.

  33. David I | August 8, 2011 at 7:30 am | Permalink

    A few more notes about remoting desktop with FireMonkey applications from Karl in FireMonkey R&D:

    RDP to a Win7 or Vista machine works fine. This is because the RDP server for Vista and Win7 can handle 3D.

    RDP to a WinXP machine that fully supports FireMonkey (has a GPU) will work for 2D and not work for 3D. This has nothing to do with FireMonkey and everything to do with the RDP server for WinXP that can’t stream 3D content over the wire.

    Regarding XenAPP: (or VmWare ESX, basically any server based virtualized environment that lacks a GPU)

    This is fundamentally about the presence of a GPU. As we’ve discussed, the GPU in involved in three parts of FireMonkey: 3D, Shader based filters/effects, and 2D drawing. FireMonkey will fall back to GDI+ based software rendering for 2D drawing, but there is no software fallback for 3D or Shader based filters/effects.

    This isn’t a FireMonkey specific problem, but a generic problem for any software that requires a GPU in an environment that doesn’t have one.

    Citrix understands this issues and is working to provide solutions: http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX125574

    Any software solution for something that a GPU can handle orders of magnitude faster will be orders of magnitude slower without one. In an environment like Citrix, you are radically cutting the number of instances that can run at one time because you are greatly increasing the CPU usage to make up for the lack of a CPU.

    For Windows desktop remoting environments on pre-Windows Vista/7 you can still use the VCL.

    Building GUI is only one part of building application.

    One big problem with VCL is poor class library compared to .Net.

    No standard serialization mechanism.
    No standard nullable type and tuple class more.
    No standard Garbage collectors.
    Poor standard generics collections(no SortedDictinary, OrderdDictionary and so on).
    No reliable well-desingned network library(Indy is sometimes buggy ).

    So productibity is pretty worst than .Net

    Simple answer to your question is you can not compare Native Code with .Net Codes. Also there are over thousand ways of dealing with network libraries in Delphi. For example uniGUI for Delphi (free) still on BETA version.

    Hi David

    Yes I understand FireMonkey is more and not directly comparable with WPF.

    But when I read this I thought it reminded me of WPF:
    "Components in FireMonkey are containers; it means you can embed any component inside any other component. Just to give you an idea, the Button component is composed by 9 components, when together they look and behave like a Button"

    Kobus

    There are several non-visual components that are not actually VCL. Many of these components can be used on multiple operating systems including:

    dbExpress drivers - we have driver interfaces for 32-bit and 64 bit windows and for OS X.

    TClientDataSet can be used.

    Indy Components - being worked on

    Project Jedi - they are on the beta test, so stay tuned for their status

    TeeChart - VCL and FireMonkey editions will be available

    Our component and tool partner EcoSystem has been working on the Application Platform since end of last year and also were fundamental in our decision to create FireMonkey and make sure it works across operating systems and hardware platforms.

    and you create a XE2 with this support, it’s unfair

  45. Ben Hayat | August 26, 2011 at 6:55 pm | Permalink

    David, I hope the team is attending at MSFT BUILD conference in three weeks. The Win8 support will be critical for XE2. Secondly support for Android.

    This will bring in lots of people from .Net and Java to Delphi to write one code for all three platforms. The Tablet is gaining momentum and Delphi XE2 can be the king to cover all three. Remember Delphi 1, the "VB Killer"? :-)

    David, I’m attending the Washington, DC day event even though I’m from Montreal. Very curious to see how to use Delphi for iOS development. I started a little with XCode - it’s good … but it’s no Delphi.
    I do have concerns on how to develop in Delphi and have access to iPhone’s full capabilities???
    Will we be able to use their address book? Background threading? And a BIG thing … can we do networking (TCP/IP etc) on the iPhone?

    You use the Delphi XE2 IDE on Windows. You create the FireMonkey user interface and event handling code in the IDE. you use the code editor to create additional functions. You save your project to a folder accessible by your Macintosh. Then we have a DPR2XCode project converter that generates the XCode project file for your source code. You move to the Mac and compile (we are temporarily using FreePascal Compiler until our next generation Delphi compiler - that will support ARM chip - is done) the project for iOS. You can run and debug using the iOS simulator or deploy to your device (if you have a developer key).

    There is a FreePascal unit iPhoneAll - that gives you access via code to the iphone APIs. you can add that code either in the Delphi XE2 IDE or in XCode.

  48. Joe Sansalone | September 7, 2011 at 7:15 pm | Permalink

    Thank you David for the quick response. "iPhone APIs" - does that include all the library of classes available in XCode for the iPhone? Like their popup menu? or their navigation table classes etc? And I’ll be able to write it all in Delphi, right?
    What about more than just UI?

    Sounds exciting!

  49. Joe Sansalone | September 8, 2011 at 3:03 pm | Permalink

    Hi David. Just wanted to add to my last comment. Networking is the highest priority after UI, for iPhone development. Without it the scope of apps is rather limited.

  50. David I | September 9, 2011 at 12:54 am | Permalink

    iPhoneAll.pas is the unit that gives you access from your FireMonkey for iOS applications. It is included in the FreePascal + RTL + FireMonkey libraries and units as part of the RAD Studio XE2 install.
    iphoneall.pas has includes for all (most?) of the iOS interfaces.

  51. Joe Sansalone | September 9, 2011 at 7:40 am | Permalink

    Are there plans for some new Delphi classes to package some iPhone functionality, like access to the camera, GPS, accelerometer, etc? In the future?
