CodeGear Introduces Delphi for Win32, Providing RAD Development for Windows Vista and AJAX


Tuesday, February 20, 2007; 04:22 AM

CodeGear, a leader in developer tools, today announced Delphi 2007 for Win32, a new version of the award-winning rapid application development (RAD) environment with new support for Microsoft Windows Vista and AJAX.

Now developers have the ability to quickly and easily build rich client applications that are enhanced to support Microsoft Windows Vista Aero user interfaces and dynamic AJAX enabled corporate Web applications. Delphi for Win32 also includes the new DBX 4 database architecture that supports the latest versions of the most popular RDBMSs used today including Microsoft SQL Server, InterBase from CodeGear, MySQL, and Oracle, broadening the appeal for the already popular development platform.

“Built for ISVs, system integrators, VARs and small to medium enterprises, Delphi for Win32 enables customers to develop ultra high-performance native Microsoft Windows applications on either Microsoft XP or Vista that not only support both platforms, but are enhanced on Vista,” said Michael Swindell, vice president of products and strategy for CodeGear.

“Support for both Microsoft XP and Vista helps developers get a jump-start in leveraging Microsoft’s new visual operating system while continuing to support their existing Windows users. New VCL for the Web allows developers to rapidly and visually build dynamic data-driven corporate Web applications with rich AJAX user interfaces,” continued Swindell.

New features and capabilities provided by Delphi for Win32 include:

  • Support for Microsoft Windows Vista and AJAX
  • Development on Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows XP or Vista, and deployment on Windows 2000, Windows XP and Vista
  • Microsoft MSBuild support for enhanced build flexibility and third-party support
  • A new DBX 4 database architecture that streamlines database connectivity
  • Built-in support for the latest versions of InterBase, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle and other RDBMSs
  • Themed application support
  • VCL support for Microsoft Windows Vista Aero glassing effects, Vista file dialogs and task dialogue components
  • VCL for the Web with AJAX support
  • Backwards compatibility with Developer Studio 2006 components from CodeGear

“Delphi for Win32 sports hundreds of quality improvements that make both Delphi and applications built in Delphi more reliable and robust than ever. It also includes the latest versions of popular third-party products such as TeeChart, Indy, and Rave Reports,” said Nick Hodges, Delphi product manager at CodeGear.
