Prepping for Delphi XE5 beta blogging; PasCon / RAD Studio In Action discount

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/09/04

You will see a few Delphi XE5 pre-release related updates here soon. That is part of the Delphi XE5 beta blogging permission I have been given so I can show new Delphi XE5 features. Those updates are from a pre-release version of Delphi XE5 and will be replaced with a final update when Delphi XE5 is being released.

For more information about Delphi XE5 and the Android support, please visit

Though not as fast as I hoped (I’ve slept most of the past days), I’m already preparing my Mercurial repositories at, and preparing for the PasCon / RAD Studio In Action in Leiden, The Netherlands next saturday so stay tuned.

About this event: there are a few seats left, and a last-minute discount recently launched. Book your tickets through the on-line links for EUR 35 excluding VAT (normallu EUR 49 excluding VAT): Read the rest of this entry »

.net – What is the difference between SqlCommand.CommandTimeout and SqlConnection.ConnectionTimeout? – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/09/04

Lots of people are confused about the different time out options you can set in ADO.NET.

Thanks NinethSense for explaining this well for the SqlClient DAL. Other DALs work in a similar way.

  • SqlCommand.CommandTimeout = timeout limit for your SQL query. Means, how much time a (eg: SELECT, UPDATE) query can take for its execution. If it exceeds SqlCommand.CommandTimeout, then it stops execution. A command timeout error will occur.
  • SqlConnection.ConnectionTimeout = timeout limit for your connection. Means, how much time your connection object can try to connect. If it exceeds the specified time, it stops connecting. A connection timeout error will occur.
