Delphi 2009 Handbook By Marco Cantu
Publisher: Wintech Italia Srl, Italy 2008 | 401 Pages | ISBN: Not Assigned | PDF | 4 MB
This is a book about CodeGear Delphi 2009.
You won't find an introduction to Delphi programming, its Object Pascal language or its Visual Component Library in it. In this book you can read only about new features of Delphi 2009 for Win32 in each of these areas. The book covers Delphi 2009 Unicode support, the new language features (such as generics and anonymous methods), the improvements of the IDE, the new classes of the Run Time Library, the new components of the VCL (including the Ribbon control), and the extensions to the database architecture and the DataSnap multi-tier technology.
As usual for my books, I'm covering the theory but also showing you dozens of examples, you can download and play with on your computer. If you still don't own Delphi 2009, you can download the trial version and also look at the actual programs in action in a series of videos linked from the web page: http://www.marcocantu.com/dh2009/videos.html
