Rad Studio EX2

Embarcadero® RAD Studio XE2 is the ultimate application development suite and the fastest way to build data-rich, visually engaging applications for Windows, Mac, mobile, .NET, PHP and the Web. RAD Studio includes Delphi®, C++Builder®, Embarcadero Prism™, and RadPHP™, enabling developers to deliver applications up to 5x faster across multiple desktop, mobile, Web, and database platforms including Delphi applications for 64-bit Windows.

Deliver fast native applications for Windows, Mac, web and mobile

With RAD Studio XE2, you can write an application once in Delphi and compile it for Windows and Mac and build applications for iOS. C++Builder applications can be compiled for Windows and Mac and with RadPHP you can easily build applications for the Web. RAD Studio XE2 applications are compiled into simple and efficient executables that are easy to distribute and deploy.

Speed up your development process with RAD (Rapid Application Development)

Rapid Application Development (RAD) tools allow for fast visual prototyping. You get your customer's feedback on actual GUI prototypes and in real time before moving on to full production. With RAD Studio XE2 you also get thousands of built-in extendable components, which increase reusability and speed up your development process.

Create more visually stunning and interactive applications

RAD Studio XE2's included application platforms, VCL and FireMonkey, help developers rapidly build business applications with higher quality user interfaces and rich data and services connectivity. The VCL framework is designed to build traditional Win32/Win64 form based GUI applications and largely leverages the Windows operating system and APIs such as GDI to draw UIs. FireMonkey is a rich business application platform that enables developers to build visually spectacular HD and 3D business applications with incredibly fast performance on Windows, Mac and iOS.

Build applications that connect everywhere

When you use RAD Studio, your applications get high-speed connectivity to popular databases. Create multi-tier applications with Windows servers and support for clients on multiple operating systems. You can also connect with a broad variety of data and services.

Data-aware UIs and beyond - visualize live data

RAD Studio'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.
