Free Download: Bold for Delphi 2005

By: John Kaster

Abstract: The Borland ECO team (formerly known as our Bold team) has graciously provided a download of Bold that can be used with Delphi 2005 Architect

A Delphi 2005 compatible version of the award winning model-driven framework Bold for Delphi is now available for download from CodeCentral.

This edition contains a few bug fixes beyond Delphi 7 Architect Service Pack 2, but has no new features. Additional information on MDA (Model Driven Architecture) technology for Borland Delphi with either ECO (for Delphi and other languages that run on the Microsoft .NET platform) or Bold (for Delphi on the Win32 platform), can be found on the OO design street on BDN.

Note: This is an unsupported, use at your own risk, download for use with Delphi 2005 Architect. Bold is certified for use with Delphi 7 Architect, and is still a supported technology for owners of Delphi 7 Architect. Bold is not certified for use with Delphi 2005. This is a build directly from Borland R&D, and is not supported by Borland's Customer Support department.
