Rapid Application development on Delphi

From a layman's point of view RAD is a software development process that allows usable systems to be built in very fast or within a small span of time. It is a process through which the development cycle of an application is expedited. Rapid application development thus enables quality products to be developed faster, saving valuable resources.The basic principle behind this definition is that the business requirements for a system can be fully satisfied even if some of its operational requirements are not satisfied. It can also be interpreted this way that the acceptability of a system can be assessed against the agreed minimum useful set of requirements rather than all requirements. And Delphi application development is the best method to be deployed in developing Rapid application development. Using Delphi, the RAD application can be build much faster with pre-built components and drag-and-drop visual designs. Delphi radically speeds desktop, workstation, touch, kiosk, and Web application development without sacrificing an ounce of programming power or control.

Delphi regarded as the premier development environment that enables to rapidly deliver high performance and easy to maintain software applications. Delphi also provides a comprehensive set of editing, refactoring, and debugging tools in a complete solution focused on making development faster and easier. The powerful Delphi language and compiler, delivers high performance and access to all the power and speed of native Windows development. Delphi is very much suitable for software project as it contains several libraries which also support the development of web applications. Delphi is very popular for the desktop applications & enterprise applications. Delphi is rapid application development because of the feature that it integrates IDE integrated development environment which helps to provide GUI (graphical user interface) for localization and translation to created programs. As its source code contains various libraries for the development of applications, the Delphi products are having colossal framework called VCL (Visual Component Library). Users of Delphi are provided to update the older versions into newer ones with the help of integrated VCL framework which maintains high level of source code compatibility between various versions. So the process of software development would be much faster and error free.

Jaguar Development with PowerBuilder 7

PowerBuilder application development environment is a declarative application development platform for building, maintaining and modernizing business-critical Windows applications. PowerBuilder provides tools for developing custom class, which is non-visual user objects and deploying them as Jaguar CTS components. PowerBuilder includes three wizards for building Jaguar components and those are Start wizard, which creates a new application, a new custom class user object, and a new project, object wizard creates a new custom class user object in an existing application and a new project and project wizard which Generates a Jaguar component from an existing custom class user object.

PowerBuilder is the award-winning development tool that simplifies the building of data driven, business applications. It is both revolutionary and proven technology, a dynamic duo that catapults the developer experience out of this world. To build and deploy an appropriate Jaguar component from a custom class user object, you need to complete the following steps. These steps are listed down here. They use the Jaguar Component Start Wizard to create a new user object in a new application. Alternatively, if you are working in an existing application, you can use the Jaguar Component Object wizard to create the object. It adds functions, events, and instance variables to the generated user object in the user object painter. It also tests and debugs the component and finally deploys the component to Jaguar. The Jaguar component life-cycle is designed to take advantage of sharing server resources while reducing the chance that client applications can take control of them, thus ensuring that the Jaguar server has consistent performance and can handle the maximum number of concurrent connections. Jaguar Development with PowerBuilder 7 shows off the strengths of Sybase Enterprise Applications Server (EAS) and Jaguar CTS to create scalable database applications in PowerBuilder. Jaguar programmers develops the DataWindow technology that abstracts the complexity of data access, data manipulation, sorting, filtering, data presentation, and enables developers to declaratively apply custom business logic with about five lines of script, significantly accelerating development speed. With the help of Jaguar development you can create desktop, web, rich internet applications (RIA) or windows presentation foundation (WPF) applications at a much easier and faster way.

Delphi component Development

Components are very essential elements of the Delphi environment. Components are simply little bits of an overall system. The term components can be better understood with the help of an example, to manufacture a car, various components are needed like the spare parts etc. The other part of component is variable, taking the same example of car, “paintcolour”, “manufacturer” etc are called the variables. One of the most important and essential features of Delphi is that you can use Delphi to create your own components. A new component can be derived from the existing component by using Delphi. Component can also be created by modifying existing controls, creating windowed controls, creating graphic controls, subclassing Windows controls and creating nonvisual components.


Components can help to reuse code for eg if you find yourself repeating the same code, you can write a component for your task and place it on future projects with two mouse clicks. This can benefit the Delphi developers and Delphi programmers the most.

Why should you go for component writing? The answer is its ease of use and debugging facility. Encapsulated code means that you can simply drop the same component onto various forms again and again without writing a single line of code. And Centralized code makes it easy to repair an entire application by fixing an error in a single component and recompiling. And component writing increase revenue of your company, as the job is made easier by not doing that repeated work again and lot of companies are always ready to go-ahead with such opportunity. By creating Delphi components, you get a lot of benefit like, it provides abstract and wrap working functionality and provide an easy to use interface through properties, methods and events. It Provides maximum re-usability. Gets the best visual development experience and and allow third parties to easily use your code.

Components are usually optimized within a complete, cost-effective package to meet the manufacturer's performance objectives and price points.
