We attended the DelphiLive Delphi developer conference in San Jose California once again this year. Although it was a very small event we had many good discussions with developers, including some of our long time Advantage customers who attended the event.
Embarcadero announced the launch of the latest product RAD Studio XE, which includes Delphi, C++ Builder, Delphi Prism and RadPHP tools. There were also many other great sessions from many great speakers including Cary Jensen, Jim McKeeth and of course David Intersimone. There was also an "Meet the Team" event where members of the Delphi engineering team were available to answer questions.
One of the big announcements we made at the show is the release of the next Advantage Database Server book written by Cary Jensen. The book is titled Advantage Database Server: A Developer's Guide, 2nd Edition and has been updated to include all of the changes in Advantage version 10.
There is a companion web site to go along with the book which provides code downloads as well as some additional chapters. In fact, you can download all of the chapters included in part three of the book which covers accessing Advantage data. Each chapter covers a different development platform such as Delphi, Visual Studio, Java and several web platforms.
