Enterprise Connectors on CodeRage 2019

December 12th, 2019 Posted by Embarcadero No Comment yet

I mentioned on a previous This Month in RAD Studio that CodeRage 2019 is currently on, and this week I gave a session on setting up the Connection component in Enterprise Connectors.

 

It’s fairly short (around 15 minutes) but I go into customising the connection to:

  • look for the OAuth Token in a custom location
  • trigger the OAuth process if it doesn’t find a token
  • creating the Google API credentials and putting them into your connection
  • customising the Consent Screen so your users see your app details, not CData’s

Automated Testing with Ranorex : Actions

December 11th, 2019 Posted by Embarcadero, Ranorex No Comment yet

The other day I posted about how I’m increasingly becoming a fan of the automated testing tool, Ranorex Studio. I listed a bunch of reasons and mentioned I would dive into more details about some of them.

 

So today, I’d like to start that, by looking at Actions.

Testing your RAD Studio Applications with Ranorex Studio

December 3rd, 2019 Posted by Embarcadero, Ranorex No Comment yet

Over the last few months we’ve been doing more and more work with Ranorex Studio.

 

If you’re not aware, Ranorex Studio is a Test Automation tool covering desktop, web and mobile applications. It supports applications written in dozens (or maybe hundreds, I didn’t count them all) of technologies and languages, but importantly for many of you reading this, RAD Studio is one of them.

 

I’m increasingly falling in love with this tool, for a bunch of reasons: (more…)

Webinar : Converting a 20 year old Legacy Application to Microservices and Containers

August 21st, 2019 Posted by Embarcadero, News No Comment yet

Update: We had a great response to the webinar. Thanks to everyone who attended. I’ve updated the post below with the recording and links to the other materials.

 


 

Code Partners is co-presenting a webinar next week with Embarcadero, detailing the story of how a major freight company took a 20-year old Delphi 6 client-server application and converted it to a Microservices architecture,  leveraging Kubernetes and containers and still using Delphi.

 

Here’s the description:

 

It’s 2014. Brazil’s largest domestic Freight company is facing a problem. The 20 year old Delphi 6 application which ran a crucial part of their operation could not scale to keep up with the massive growth they were experiencing.

They’d already tried to replace it twice, once with SAP and once with Java, and both projects had failed. Their next attempt had to work.

It’s 2019. Their new operational system is flexible, scalable, saving them money and rock solid. It uses a modern, microservices architecture built on top of Docker and Kubernetes and leveraging DevOps principles.

Oh, and it’s still written in Delphi!

  • Join us for this real world Case Study to learn what happened between 2014 and 2019:
  • Why did the two earlier attempts to rewrite fail?
  • How did an 8 person Delphi development team pull off this massive turnaround in less time than much larger external teams?
  • How did the project pay for itself in reduced Citrix costs alone?
  • How did they architect this new system to provide the elastic scalability and development speed that other systems could not.

 

This is a great story of recognising the value in an existing system, and how migration is often a faster, lower risk approach than a rewrite. It will be  presented by Code Partners’ own Malcolm Groves, Fernando Rizzato from Embarcadero and Kelver Merlotti from Embarcadero Brazil.

The webinar will be held on Thursday, August 29, 2019 at 11am AEST (9am in Perth/Singapore, 1pm in New Zealand) and you can register here.

Hope to see you on the webinar!

 

Materials

The materials from the webinar, including:

  • A PDF version of the slides,
  • Fernando’s example Dockerfiles
  • the RAD Server sample code

 

are all available in his github repo here.

 

 

Lastly, here’s the recording. Hope you enjoy it.
