Embarcadero’s RAD Server provides a turn-key application foundation for rapidly building and deploying services-based applications using Delphi and C++Builder. RAD Server supports the REST (Representational State Transfer) protocol with JSON (or XML) parameter passing and return results. You can publish APIs, manage users and devices that are connected to the RAD Server, capture analytics about the use and users of applications, connect to local and enterprise databases using the FireDAC components and connect with Internet of Things (IoT) devices. RAD Server also supports user authentication, push notifications, geolocation, and data storage.
Throughout the RAD Server documentation, source code, and in this technical paper, you’ll see references to EMS (Enterprise Mobility Services). EMS was the original name for the product, technologies, components and wizards that are now included the RAD Server product.
With RAD Server’s wizards, components, and tools you can quickly develop new middleware and backend applications or migrate your existing Delphi and C++Builder client/server applications to a RAD Server based application to run on a server or in the cloud. You can publish your endpoints for REST calls from desktop, mobile, console, web and other types of applications. RAD Server comes with a full set of tools, components, database connectivity and interfaces that you will rely upon in building your service applications.
RAD Server applications can be deployed on top of Microsoft Windows IIS and Apache web servers, and you can deploy your Delphi-based services to Linux Intel 64-bit servers.
