Embarcadero Technologies announced the last of three sneak previews into Delphi 2010 and C++Builder 2010, part of the Embarcadero RAD Studio 2010 family. The latest sneak preview showcases expanded database connectivity for more than a dozen platforms including Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, Sybase, MySQL, InterBase, IBM DB2, and more, plus new support for the popular Firebird SQL database.
Firebird is a community-supported open source database based on Embarcadero’s InterBase platform. RAD Studio’s DataSnap multi-tier data access framework has also been enhanced to support an array of industry-standard data communication protocols such as JSON, SOAP, XML and REST enabling interoperability with virtually any data source.
Some of the new features being previewed include:
“With RAD Studio 2010, our goal is to make Delphi and C++Builder the most flexible and powerful application development tools for the widest selection of database platforms,” said Michael Swindell, vice president of products, Embarcadero Technologies. “The 2010 releases will add highly requested support for Firebird SQL, the popular open source database which is based on Embarcadero’s InterBase database platform. We are also extending RAD Studio’s powerful DataSnap connectivity platform with JSON and RESTful Web Services and updating the `out-of-the-box' database support for all major database platforms.”
