Back in 2019, David I wrote a fantastic guide to RAD Server that has been very popular in helping developers develop new, and migrate older systems towards a RESTful architecture. There have been a number of updates to RAD Server since the guide was originally launched, including a number of new components that have simplified and made RAD Server even more RAD!
We have also had a lot of feedback over time about using the guide, and we have incorporated a large part of that into the new, heavily revised version. Today we launch the first part of that guide but with a refreshed approach. Now you will find not only the text guide but also source code examples that you can directly download from Github for both Delphi and C++Builder, and also includes a comprehensive video series supporting each chapter.

Once you have downloaded the new guide, you will find in the paper the links for the GitHub repository with all the examples as well as the video series included.
The list of the current published chapters is:
Chapter 1: What’s RAD Server – Introduction
Chapter 2: Using the RAD Wizard to Create a “hello world”
Chapter 3: Creating your first CRUD Application
Chapter 4: REST Debugger
Chapter 5: Using FireDAC Batch Move and JSONWriter
Chapter 6: JSONValue, JSONWriter and JSONBuilder
Chapter 7: Creating your own customized endpoints
Chapter 8: Accessing the built-in analytics
Chapter 9: Deploying RAD Server (Windows, Linux & Docker)
Chapter 10: RAD Server Lite
Our plan is to keep this guide updated and release new chapters progressively in the future so stay tuned for upcoming updates.
