Delphi XE2 is available in five editions – Starter, Professional, Enterprise, Ultimate and Architect. Delphi XE2 is also available as part of the RAD Studio XE2 – a development suite that includes Delphi, C++Builder, RadPHP and additional tools
Delphi XE2 Starter is a great way to get started building high-performance applications for Windows. Delphi Starter includes a streamlined IDE, code editor, ultra fast compiler, integrated debugger, two-way visual designers to speed development, hundreds of visual components, local connectivity with the InterBase database, and a limited commercial use license. Starter edition features include:
If you're an individual you may use Starter Edition to create apps for your own use and apps that you can sell until your revenues reach $1,000 per year. If you're a small company or organization without revenue (or up to $1,000 per year in revenue), you can also use the Starter Edition. Once your company's total revenue reaches US $1,000, or your team expands to more than 5 developers, you can move up to an unrestricted commercial license with a specially priced Professional edition license. See the Delphi Starter page for more information and additional FAQs.
