The trend today is to deliver applications via the Web. Organizations want their information available via a browser to make data and functions easily accessible to a broad range of users, as well as to reduce development and training time. For application developers, Web 2.0 development delivers many benefits - platform support and standards; operating system independence; and simplicity (e.g., less to install on your computer; no worries about installing in the right directories)...
CodeGear understands developers. It's who we are. So we build complete development environments to make it easier for developers to get started fast, and be highly productive. You don't have to build your own environment, and put all the pieces together to make it work. With CodeGear solutions, you're ready to go, right out of the box - including databases, VM, IDE and debugger. You'll have everything you need to build your application and deploy to your Web server.
With CodeGear tools, developers can focus on features, quality and building compelling Web applications that deliver the functionality and performance that once required a native app. With Web 2.0 and AJAX it's easier to build applications that are interactive, can access data and deliver a quality user experience.
If you're looking for a quick and easy way to build dynamic web pages PHP is one of the most popular web scripting languages. With the release of PHP 5, the language is even more robust and supports Object Oriented Programming. PHP is also a great cross platform solution with broad support for web servers, operating systems and databases.
There are several PHP tools to choose from, but only Delphi for PHP gives you a visual, drag-and-drop development environment, that is quick and easy to use. Delphi for PHP makes it easy to rapidly prototype and produce Web applications. If your infrastructure is a LAMP stack - Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP - Delphi for PHP gives you full support.
"CodeGear revolutionized web development with the release of Delphi for PHP. It gave us countless innovations including speed, increased productivity and ease of maintenance. Because we develop high-performance financial applications, we must be able to implement new routines very quickly. This capability, along with the new HTML template system, easy access to the Oracle database, integrated help functionality and language translation in Delphi for PHP 2.0 are all very important to our business."- Ricardo Mendes, CEO of RBM Web
CodeGear 3rdRail is a complete, integrated development environment built from the ground up to bring you high efficiency coding and visualization tools. Tools like "intelligent code completion" let you build dynamic, database-backed applications faster, with fewer keystrokes. Rails takes care of a lot of the underpinning of things you'd have to do manually with Ruby language.
"This opens up a whole new world for things like advanced refactorings and, in general, provides an environment that's familiar to anyone coming from IDE-heavy environments like .NET or J2EE."- David Heinemeier Hansson, creator of Ruby on Rails
If your company has standardized on Windows technology then you're likely to consider ASP.NET to leverage the .NET framework for building interactive Web applications. Delphi for .NET and its model-driven ECO development framework in CodeGear RAD Studio let you develop powerful Web applications within the Microsoft .NET standard, for deployment environments built exclusively around Windows and Windows servers.
“As a long term user of Delphi, I also work as a Part time Project Manager. In that capacity I have used Delphi with ECO to develop ASP.NET applications. One of the applications is a task manager using state machines. I am also completely redesigning an existing web site (with totally dynamic content) using Delphi & ECO. The best part is that I could teach fresh programmers to do these (through my guidance) & they have done it very well. It has increased their confidence levels many fold.
- VT Venkatesh, Delphi training partner
If you are a Delphi or C++Builder developer, you can build Web apps in the same way you use Delphi and C++Builder to build native Windows apps. VCL for the Web is a great solution for building data-drive Web apps to run within your organization such as purchase order processing and HR applications.
"The software people at Tekran write scientific apps, realtime control measurement, and data acquisition systems that work along with our primary products (scientific instrumentation that detects ultra-trace amounts of mercury). All our software is written in Delphi. We're a small 3-delphi-developer + 1 QA person shop, but if we didn't use Delphi, we'd be a 12 man shop just to do the same amount of work."- Warren Postma, Tekran
