The European Borland Developers Conference in London is always a nice conference to attend. This year, however, I will only attend on October 27th (since Tasha's 2nd birthday is on October 26), to do the following two sessions:
|Title:||Delphi 4 Web Modules (aka Web Broker)|
|Description:||This sessions will demonstrate the power and all abilities of Delphi 4 C/S Web Modules,by implementing several web server applications.|
|Prerequisites:||Basic knowledge of HTML, ObjectPascal and the concept of CGI will be helpful.|
|Abstract:||Delphi 3 Client/Server came with a powerful new addition called "Web Modules", also available in Delphi 4 or as a separate "Web Broker" package.
Web Modules take much of the work behind CGI, WinCGI, ISAPI/NSAPI web server applications out of our hands (and our concerns). Web Modules are supported by a Wizard and a number of components, and in this session we'll learn how to use the Wizard to start a new Web Module project and then use the components to write a full-blown web server application. Every feature of every Web Module component will be demonstrated in detail by building a real-world example application, and all examples are "run" live at the session as well (using my CGI Debugger). The final example is a database web application, including pages (actions) to fill in new records in the database, as well as pages (actions) to query individual records and find matches, or to get a general overview or summary report out of this database. All components will be used for this full-blown real-life web server application.
|Title:||Introduction to JavaBeans|
|Description:||This session show how to use JBuilder 2's Java BeansExpress to write your own JavaBeans.|
|Prerequisites:||Basic Java knowledge|
|Abstract:||JavaBeans creation and deployment made easy with JBuilder 2 Java BeansExpress.
Like Delphi VCL components (that can also be used in C++Builder) and ActiveX controls, it's clear that JavaBeans are the components of the future.
In fact, as long as they're 100% pure java, JavaBeans can be used in any development environment and on any Java supporting Virtual Machine (VM).
In this session, we'll see (step-by-step) how we can write our own simple and some more complex Java Beans using JBuilder 2's Java BeansExpress. We'll also see how to deploy the newly developed Java Beans, how to add them to the component palette, and finally how to test them in a real project again.
