C++ Builder XE2

Embarcadero® C++Builder® XE2, now with FireMonkey™, is the only true visual C++ development environment - designed for ultra-fast, component-based creation of highly-maintainable, visually stunning GUI applications for Windows and Mac OS X. C++Builder's fully visual two-way RAD IDE and thousands of available components speed and simplify building visually-rich and data-intensive end-user applications.

Deliver fast native applications across Windows and Mac

C++Builder includes VCL for building native Windows applications, and FireMonkey for developing native Windows and Mac OS X applications. C++Builder enables you to write a FireMonkey app once and compile it for either platform. Your real native applications take advantage of the power and speed of the CPU and GPU. And it's all done with the power and speed of component-based visual development that saves you time while still giving you full access to source code and hardware when you need it.

Create visually stunning and interactive applications using FireMonkey

C++Builder is the premiere C++ development environment for the FireMonkey application platform. Quickly build applications that are visually spectacular, highly interactive and data rich for PC and Mac. Build stunning HD and 3D user interfaces powered by GPU scalable vector graphics with programmable animation and effects.

Build applications that connect everywhere

When you use C++Builder, your applications get built-in high-speed connectivity to all popular databases. C++Builder's RAD Cloud data and application services connect to all popular client platforms, frameworks, languages, and devices today. Connect iOS, Android, Blackberry and Windows Phone 7 mobile applications to your DataSnap applications and database services.

Data-aware UIs and beyond – visualize live data

C++Builder's new LiveBindings let you connect any data source to any VCL or FireMonkey user interface or graphic element. LiveBindings give you the power and creative freedom to present data to users in more intuitive and interactive ways. LiveBindings also include expressions giving you incredible power and flexibility to build "dynamically" calculated and updated bindings.
