A Cornucopia of Tools To Leverage

Delphi and C++ developers have a wide spectrum of available tools to help build solutions for their companies and customers. Beyond just the compiler, IDE, components and libraries, Embarcadero and Idera provide tools you can leverage to get the development done faster and with higher quality. Here is a quick rundown of all of the tools.

Developer Tools

  • Delphi and C++Builder (Professional, Enterprise, Architect and Community editions) allow developers to rapidly build multi-platform high-performance native code applications using the Visual Component Library (VCL) controls for Windows 11 and FireMonkey (FMX) components to develop single source projects for Windows, Mac, iOS, Android and Linux. Developers can also use components that work with SQL and NoSQL databases, cloud services and broad IoT connectivity. Delphi and C++Builder are supported by a global ecosystem of component and library vendors, consultants, trainers and book authors.
  • InterBase is an ultrafast, scalable, embeddable SQL database with commercial-grade data security, disaster recovery, and change synchronization. InterBase can be used by developers in four editions: IBLite – Cross-platform, zero-install, embedded database as a direct-access library; InterBase ToGo – Cross-platform, zero-install, embedded database with database-level and column-level AES and DES encryption; InterBase Desktop – Concurrent applications/client access to the database on Windows with database-level and column-level AES and DES encryption; InterBase Server – Ultrafast, scalable, SQL server database for Windows and Linux with commercial-grade data security, disaster recovery and change synchronization.
