OData: a few notes

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/03/12

You can’t keep track of the whole world, so every now and then I bump into something and think “boy I wish I had known about this years ago”.

The OData (Open Data Protocol) standard by Microsoft is such a thing. It allows to communicate data over the internet in a RESTful way using either JSON or AtomPub based XML, standardized by OASIS who has it’s roots in the SGML world (SGML is one of the predecessors of XML).

There is a rich Ecosystem of implementations in many platforms (including .NET, Delphi, Java, PHP, JavaScript, etc) with public reachable Example Services to test with (not surprising there is a NorthWind service).

Here are a few links of stuff I want to dig deeper into it to grasp it better: Read the rest of this entry »

Great Unicode presentation by

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/01/21

Stefan Heymann did a great presentation Character Sets and Unicode in Firebird at fbcon11. About 90% of it is not about Firebird, but about Unicode: a highly recommended presentation.

There is also a PDF version of the same presentation for easier reading/searching.

If you like Firebird, there is a whole bunch of Firebird related presentations from various authors shared by MindTheBird.

Delphi hinting directives: deprecated, experimental, library and platform

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/10/01

I’ve been experimenting with the Delphi hinting directives lately to make it easier to migrate some libraries to newer versions of Delphi and newer platforms.

Hinting directives (deprecated, experimental, library and platform) were – like the $MESSAGE directive – added to Delphi 6.

Up to Delphi 5 you didn’t have any means to declare code obsolete. You had to find clever ways around it.

Warnings for hinting directives

When referring to identifiers marked with a hinting directive, you can get various warning messages that depend on the kind of identifier: unit, or other symbol. Read the rest of this entry »
