    Datasnap -> MARS conversion

    Putting the SQL in the URI is IMHO a way (and unsecure) way of defining a service. Leaking the database access (and structure) is a bad practice. This is not REST-oriented at all - see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Representational_state_transfer The first step would be to put the SQL in the REST body, not in the URI. Then there is no reason why MARS shouldn't be able to execute it.

    Also, https://github.com/tananaev/rootless-logcat Same caveat.

    IDE can not create ancestor TFrame

    I have never done that but thank you for encouraging me! I just found out that, at least in my special case, the IDE runs into this error when you Are using the form designer Edit -> Hide non-visual components (Ctrl+H) Close the project After that, the registry path HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Embarcadero\BDS\17.0\Form Design has "Show NonVisual Components"="False" This appears to be deadly. Just setting this value back to "True" makes my RAD Studio work again. I am on Delphi 10.0 Seattle. Not sure if it also affects other versions.

    Android Log Capture

    I have ADB log capture in Codex: https://www.delphiworlds.com/codex/ Sorely needs updating because there's a few quirks.
  6. InitInstance() fills the allocated memory with zeros and inserts a pointer to the class's vtable at the front of the memory You should not need the type cast. ANY pointer can be assigned as-is to an untyped Pointer variable/parameter.
  7. Im building a new app that's based on a similar app i've already built in Delphi. No way i'm using Delphi now. I just renewed my maintenance and will make every attempt in the next 12 months to make sure I don't have to renew again. This is just acting in bad faith. I hate to say it but Stallman was right about a lot of things. I'm building this new app on top of open source components. I'll help contribute if I can, but im not using anymore commercial development tools. Except for Xcode because I dont have much choice there.
  8. Oh boy, the things I've heard about Packt Publishing. You'd be better off publishing yourself. Their agents work on commission so they'll basically try to talk anyone into writing a book. They'll set impossible deadlines, their editors don't speak English as a first language and will often introduce errors, they ignore the corrections/suggestions of technical editors, etc. They don't do the promotion they promise. And they've been caught before "accidentally" not paying any commission on the book sales generated through a link one could add on one's own blog for readers to buy one's book. I've seen one successful author declare he sold more copies himself than through Packt and when they finally agreed to let him out of his contract due to his allegations they hadn't done what they promised, they still refused to stop selling his book themselves. He then made his book available for free on his webpage to stop them from profiting from his book. It's a horrible, horrible outfit that's little more than a self-publishing firm that takes a large percentage of your sales and does nothing in return.
  9. No, seems there is no more download for free books. The old ones can still be downloaded
