Abstract: See what's new in Delphi XE5 including new features for true native Android and iOS app development
Delphi XE5 is a must-have upgrade for all Delphi developers and is the newest version of the award winning, multi-device app development solution from Embarcadero. Use the new features of Delphi XE5 to deliver apps Android, iOS, Windows and OS X. Target PCs, tablets and smartphones, connect with more data, more easily - and much more!
… and more!
Create mobile apps using the programming skills, knowledge and code that you already have. Your Android and iOS apps will have fast native performance and better security than web-based or scripting language-based apps. Use a full visual designer for iOS user interfaces with multiple device types, resolutions, and orientations. Learn more >
Now you can deliver apps on multiple platforms and device types – including smartphone, tablet and PCs/laptops and deliver impressive results in less time. Develop for Android, iOS, Windows and OS X using a single IDE and a single framework and create true native apps that leverage the full range of capabilities and performance in the underlying devices.

Mobile app development today often extends far beyond the device with the need to support real time communication and access to enterprise data and cloud services. Delphi’s Multi-Device Application Platform makes it possible for developers to deliver truly connected mobile computing from the device through to back-end services on multiple client OS’s and device form factors. Rapidly connect your apps to your enterprise databases and services on-premises or in the cloud with FireDAC enterprise database connectivity, DataSnap n-tier middleware, and access to cloud-based RESTful web services through MBaas providers.

FireDAC database components and drivers are now fully integrated into RAD Studio, Delphi and C++Builder. FireDAC gives you native high-speed direct access from Delphi and C++Builder to InterBase, SQLite, MySQL, SQL Server, Oracle, PostgreSQL, DB2, SQL Anywhere, Advantage DB, Firebird, Access, Informix, DataSnap and many more local/embedded, mobile and enterprise databases. Easily migrate from BDE and other technologies. Learn more >
Delphi XE5 includes mobile embedded database support for SQLite and InterBase (InterBase ToGo and IBLite) with connectivity via FireDAC, dbExpress and IBX. You also get a free development and free unlimited deployment license for IBLite for Android and iOS – a new edition of the popular embedded InterBase ToGo database. Learn more >
Delphi XE5 has new REST Client support, available on all platforms, and focused on simplifying the invocation of REST web services by any third party provider. The library features authentication support and JSON response manipulation, with dataset and LiveBindings mappings. The three core components make it easy to parameterize your requests in many different ways and access to hundreds of web services easily. This technology will enable Mobile Backend as a Service or MBaaS functionality.
