Embarcadero has some cool new Delphi iOS technology in the pipeline (via: Xcode – Debug iOS application on device without symbols – Stack Overflow)

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/06/27

Today exactly a month ago, Allen Bauer (Chief Scientist at Embarcadero) asked a really in depth question about debugging the startup sequence of iOS apps on a device not originating from Xcode on Stack Overflow indicating on what Embarcadero is researching.

Last week, he also answered the same question using manual steps for GDB. Not easy, but it works.

For a development tools company, getting your tools to work on a new platform is hard, and in this case it seems exceptionally hard.

I’m really looking forward to see what kind of cool tools come out of this, as the current developemt platform choices (Xcode or MonoTouch) can really use more competition to make it easier for us developers.

Exciting times ahead (:

  1. I am interested to hear what you think Xcode needs that competition will help deliver.

    In comparison to the current Delphi IDE and considering the price of each, I’d say that Xcode is pretty damned good. Factor in the hurdles that you are faced with when trying to use Delphi to develop for OSX/iOS and I would say that it’s Delphi that needs a good, hard kick up the bum, not Xcode.

      The Xcode development cycle is long and clumsy. With version 4 it got better (and it got more stable and a less mediocre debugger too) but it still has a long way to go.
