Technology Chat

There is no formal topic for this month's meeting. Our regular meeting time and place will be kept and there will be a laptop with Delphi 2010 hooked to the big screen TV, but no PowerPoint slides and no agenda.

Touch and Gesture Capabilities

Last summer, a member of the group brought a multi-touch enabled laptop to an ODUG meeting. Of course everyone wanted to see a touch enabled application written in Delphi. He now has a demo ready that shows some of these capabilities in a business application.

XML Binding and REST Servers

10/17/2011 6:00 pm


We'll be going over how to create XML documents in Delphi using the XML Binding Wizard to create the document from either an XSD or XML file. We'll use a web broker based REST server to serve up the document and then read it in using a Delphi client. As we do that we'll define what a REST server is and why it's replacing SOAP servers.
