Next-generation Delphi and C++Builder development tools unveiled
25 August 2008
Embarcadero Technologies today unveiled the next generation of the CodeGear rapid application development (RAD) tools for Windows: Delphi 2009 and C++Builder 2009, geared specifically for both Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and workgroup client/server development.
Developers can now expand the global reach of their applications with built-in support for Unicode throughout Delphi 2009 and C++Builder 2009, resulting in applications operating properly on all language versions of Windows.
New and enhanced localization tools make it easier to translate applications.
The new release takes the Delphi and C++ languages forward with a host of powerful new programming language features such as Delphi generics and upcoming C++0x standard language features.
Multi-tier DataSnap architecture enables developers to use RAD to build high-performance, highly scalable database middleware applications. The middleware applications can be connected to via a lightweight, open communications protocol with thin, full-featured clients that can reside on virtually any native or Web client platform.
Other new and enhanced features of the two products include:
Delphi 2009 and C++Builder 2009 are now available worldwide for pre-orders. North American upgrade pricing begins at US$399 per license for Professional editions, US$1,299 for Enterprise editions and US$2,299 for Architect editions.
