A simple Dependency Injection Container for Delphi

As wikipedia says: “Dependency injection (DI) in computer programming refers to the process of supplying an external dependency to a [software component]. It is a specific form of inversion of control where the concern being inverted is the process of obtaining the needed dependency. The term was first coined by Martin Fowler to describe the mechanism more clearly.

News and small fixes for DataSnap Filters compendiu

JSON support in Delphi2010, a simple example

During last ITDevCon in Verona (ITALY) I talked in a session with title “Marshal and UnMarshal in Delphi 2010″ (we have published some photos about this great conference here). In the first part of the session I’ve talked about JSON and many attendees were very interested in JSON and his application in everyday programming.

Si è conclusa ITDevCon 2009 [ITALIAN]

Giovedì scorso si è conclusa la prima edizione di ITDevCon, la conferenza europea dedicata interamente a Delphi e alle tecnologie e metodologie ad esso collegate. Aver partecipato alla sua organizzazione selezionando i contenuti tecnici è stato molto impegnativo, ma visto il successo, altrettanto gratificante. Ringrazio gli speaker che hanno proposto topic ad alto contenuto informativo e tecnico nonostante alcuni argomeni affrontati richiedessero, probabilmente, più tempo di quello a disposizione (le sessioni sono durate 55 minuti).

Custom Marshalling/UnMarshalling in Delphi 2010

My AMQP Delphi wrapper is in the standard 0MQ distributio

Yes, this is a nice news! My AMQP Delphi wrapper for 0MQ is officially included into the distribution of 0MQ. Now sources are managed into the main svn trunk. You can read the news in the project’s main page. You can see the code here. In the upcoming greatest Delphi conference ITDevCon, I’ll have a talk about MoM (Message oriented middleware) and I’ll talk about ZeroMQ too.

Using AMQP from Delphi with ZeroMQ

The Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) is an open standard [application layer] protocol for [[Message Oriented Middleware]](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Message_oriented_middleware “What does it mean “Mom” ?") (MoM). The defining features of AMQP are message orientation, queuing, routing (including point-to-point and publish-and-subscribe), reliability and security^.^ The good news about AMQP is that AMQP mandates the behaviour of the messaging provider and client to the extent that implementations from different vendors are truly interoperable, in the same way as SMTP, HTTP, FTP, etc.
