Delphi developers know the value of small, agile teams. For years, they have outperformed larger development organizations through skill, expertise, and the right choice of tools. Borland® Delphi® 2006 provides the ultimate 'force multiplier', eliminating tedium and maximizing productivity through a revolutionary enterprise framework, a reusable visual component library, and a fully integrated suite of modeling and application lifecycle management (ALM) tools. Quickly reverse-engineer, migrate, and reuse existing code with enhanced Borland® Together® modeling and LiveSource® features. Delphi 2006 is part of Borland Developer Studio - Borland's multi-language developer environment for Microsoft® Windows® and .NET applications. It is the only IDE that includes support for Delphi (both Windows and .NET), C, C++ and C# applications within a single environment.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

SPEED DEVELOPMENT AND ELIMINATE MAINTENANCE HASSLES WITH A TRUE ENTERPRISE FRAMEWORK FOR .NET

Move to the next level of design-driven development with the ECO III model-powered framework for Microsoft .NET when building Web Services, ASP.NET, and Windows Form-based applications. Use the model-powered ECO (Enterprise Core Objects™) Object/Relational Mapping technology to generate or map to major enterprise-class relational databases, then later evolve the database based on changes in the design model. Build enterprise-scale applications using multiple synchronized ECO Space object caches for increased scalability and performance. New in ECO III, you can now also design robust enterprise applications at the state-machine level, allowing you to focus on application design instead of infrastructure.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED, ALL IN ONE IDE

With Delphi, C/C++, and C# languages, and support for the Microsoft .NET Framework, ASP.NET, VCL.NET, VCL, and Win32® SDKs, you have the right tools for any job. With full support for Win32 and .NET, Delphi 2006 lets you continue to develop and maintain existing Win32 applications while simplifying the path to the Microsoft .NET Framework and next-generation Windows applications.

ACCELERATE WINDOWS DEVELOPMENT WITH THE MOST PRODUCTIVE AND RELIABLE RAD ENVIRONMENT EVER

Delphi 2006 introduces many productivity enhancements, including a new live templates system, history manager, structure pane, improved database providers to simplify application data access, and VCL usability improvements to speed GUI development. Advanced refactorings for Delphi, C/C++, and C# languages let you rapidly make extensive automated source code changes that work. Performance and quality enhancements throughout make Delphi 2006 the most solid, responsive, and feature-rich rapid application development (RAD) environment ever.

STREAMLINE THE COMPLETE APPLICATION LIFECYCLE

Take full control of the application development lifecycle process with integrated requirements management, UML modeling, version control, bug tracking, and team collaboration tools. Ease maintainability with Together reverse engineering capabilities and leverage rapid prototyping with ECO III to improve the quality of requirements.
