Je pense le lire, mais je peine à lire les livres électroniques ! La longueur d'un tuto me convient sur écran, mais au-delà... Et j'ai du retard de lecture par ailleurs !

Mais c'est sûrement une excellente révision de nombreux points et éclairage sur de nouveaux.

Critique du livre par la rédaction Serge Girard le 6 juin 2017
J'ai découvert la parution de ce livre par hasard au fil de mes recherches sur les LiveBindings.
Utilisant FireDAC depuis sa sortie je me suis dit qu'il valait la peine de se fendre de quelques euros pour avoir enfin une documentation sur ces composants.

FireDAC (ex AnyDAC) était voulu pour être un « BDE like » et plus. Ceux qui ont abordé Delphi à ses débuts ont eu la chance d'avoir des livres assez complets (je retourne régulièrement à ma bibliothèque papier les compulser, en particulier les 4 ou 5 tomes de Delphi 3) mais au fil du temps ces derniers sont devenus de plus en plus compacts (un seul tome pour Delphi 7) jusqu'à finir par disparaître. Il était donc temps d'avoir un ouvrage sur ce sujet.

Premières impressions : livre très clair et aéré, impression renforcée par une police de caractères assez importante.Les images d'écran sont nombreuses, les codes exemples, téléchargeables par ailleurs, sont clairs quoique sans commentaires.

J'ai beaucoup apprécié les différents tableaux de propriétés bien détaillés. Bien qu'utilisant FireDAC depuis déjà quelques années, j'en ai découvert beaucoup plus grâce à ce livre que pendant toutes ces années à rechercher dans l'aide et via les moteurs de recherches dès que je butais sur un problème. Un exemple : j'ai été soufflé par la performance de l'utilisation des ArrayDML du chapitre 15 (la démonstration vaut le détour), ou encore par les fonctionnalités, décrites dans le chapitre 11 'Persisting Data', dont je n'avais aucune connaissance.

Un seul regret : tous les composants de la suite ne sont pas abordés, mais il aurait certainement fallu un millier de pages supplémentaires !

En conclusion, un livre à mettre dans toutes les mains, aussi bien du débutant qui veut se connecter à des bases de données que des développeurs confirmés qui voudraient migrer leurs anciennes applications BDE. En tout cas, ce dernier sera en bonne position sur mon bureau pour l'avoir sous la main lors de mes prochains développements.

P.S. On parle rarement des relecteurs techniques, j'aimerais signaler que l'un de ces correcteurs est Dmitry Arefiev qui est l'un des créateurs d'AnyDAC, toujours aux manettes de FireDAC chez Embarcadero. Si ça ce n'est pas un gage de sérieux pour ce livre, je mange mon chapeau.

Critique du livre par la rédaction Serge Girard le 8 janvier 2015
Les livres concernant les versions XE de Delphi (ici XE6) sont rares. Ce n'est pas un livre de référence tel que l'incontournable 'Delphi 7 Studio' de O.Dahan et P.Toth mais un livre de recettes pour public averti.

Comme dans un livre de recettes de cuisine, chaque "plat" est présenté :
  • par sa "photo" -> Ce que l'on va faire ;
  • sa recette -> Comment le Faire ;
  • sa préparation -> Comment ça marche ;
  • les conseils du Chef -> Aller plus loin.

Le chapitre 1 peut être un peu décevant au départ (vieilles recettes) mais monte vite en puissance. Le reste du livre, pour continuer la comparaison, est digne d'un chef étoilé.

L'achat permet d'accéder aux sources des programmes exemples. C'est le seul bémol que je mettrai : il est dommage d'avoir à ouvrir l'EDI pour suivre la lecture mais c'est hélas courant ; impossible de lire le livre dans son fauteuil préféré au coin de la cheminée.

À mon avis, c'est un livre plus que digne d'attention mais peut-être pas dans sa version papier. Plutôt que d'encombrer une bibliothèque , à courte échéance au vu du renouvellement rapide des versions de Delphi XE, préférez la version électronique de l'éditeur (vous y gagnerez en place et en monnaie sonnante et trébuchante).

Mastering Delphi 6

de
Public visé : Débutant

Résumé de l'éditeur

Whether you class yourself as just a beginner or have long been a lover of Borland's much-acclaimed object-oriented development tool, Mastering Delphi 6 has plenty to offer you. Written by world-renowned Delphi expert Marco Cantù, this edition, marking the release of Delphi 6, continues the tradition of excellence, balancing attention to detail with the author's unfussy, very readable style, which makes this a book that's accessible to all. While you will need an understanding of the basics of Pascal, even that is catered to by the inclusion of an easy-to-understand Pascal tutorial as one of the four bonus "chapters" on the accompanying CD-ROM. The CD-ROM also includes example source code and the full searchable text of the book in Acrobat format.

Much of the introductory material included in previous editions has been removed in favor of plenty of exposure to the enhancements available in Delphi 6. Among others, these include CLX, the new cross-platform component library, dbExpress, the new database engine, and Delphi's extensive support for e-business and Web development. There is also improved coverage of some of Delphi's longer-standing features.

Designed in a tutorial format, this book bristles with practical programming. In all, there are around 300 examples, each one supported by Cantù's clear explanation of the key skills in view. From the foundations of Delphi's object-oriented class library through to a whole section devoted to building Web applications, no information is left unexplored. If you are looking to lever your skills and harness the power of Delphi 6 for your applications, look no further than this excellent resource.

Delphi in a nutshell

A Desktop Quick Reference

de

Résumé de l'éditeur

Aimed at the working Delphi developer, Delphi in a Nutshell is an effective desktop reference to this popular programming tool. Besides listing all core classes and methods, this book also provides a host of expert dos and don'ts for mastering the newest features in Delphi's Object Pascal.

The heart of this book is its reference sections on built-in Delphi language features and other useful information on this development tool. Each entry has a guide to syntax, a description of all parameters and return values, and code samples, plus many entries feature "tricks and tips" with additional information. While this title concentrates on the "core" language (instead of Delphi's extensive support for visual components), there's little doubt that it will be useful if you work with the tool on a daily basis.

The book also delivers an advanced guide to ramping up on the latest and greatest in new language features in Object Pascal. Material on using classes, and the type of information features available in today's Delphi, are particularly effective. There are a lot of smart tips on proper class design techniques, including using properties, constructors, and destructors. (Delphi has its own conventions here, and this book will fill you in if you are coming to Object Pascal from another programming language.) Along the way, the author offers numerous expert nuggets on when to use (and when to avoid) using certain features. Whether you are a novice or a more experienced developer, this tutorial and reference is all you need to be productive with the latest and greatest in object-oriented programming with Delphi.

Delphi Developer's Guide to OpenGL

de
Public visé : Expert

Résumé de l'éditeur

The Delphi Developer's Guide to OpenGL gives an outline of OpenGL--once a proprietary graphics library that used to reside only on expensive workstations--and explains its capabilities, including how to use it inside Borland's popular programming language, Delphi.

The book begins with a tour of creating a Delphi project that can utilize OpenGL. Over the first five chapters, the book demonstrates how 3D graphics work using popular computer graphics nomenclature as well as instructions for drawing OpenGL objects in perspective within a Delphi window, and the implementation of the three different types of OpenGL lighting (ambient, specular, and diffuse) upon those objects.

While the book provides great coverage on some of OpenGL's effects (fog, transparency, and mapping textures to surfaces), the most important chapter is "Picking," which discusses how to detect a user's interaction with OpenGL objects (i.e., detecting a user's selection and movement of an onscreen object).

There are plenty of code snippets, and all the source code in the book can be found on the CD-ROM. However, the book completely lacks color pictures that demonstrate the results of the techniques, even though the chapters on lighting, textures, and special effects could've greatly benefited from them. Also, all the examples in the book use extremely primitive shapes and actions. Presumably, a talented programmer can extrapolate the viable info from the simple examples and build more sophisticated projects.

With the proliferation of video display cards that support the OpenGL standard, applications built in popular development environments like Delphi can take advantage of real-time 3D graphics. This is a timely book, suitable for programmers with Delphi experience and some graphics programming experience who need to get a leg up on the Delphi/OpenGL learning curve.

Bonjour,

Je viens de le commander en occasion pour 21 euros, pour développer ma culture générale sur les graphismes avec Delphi.

J'en ai commandé un autre aussi : Delphi Graphics and Game Programming Exposed: With Directx for Versions 5.0-7.0

Il est vrai que les livres sur les graphismes avec Delphi ne sont pas légion et datent quelque peu

The Tomes of Delphi 3 : Win32 Graphical Api

de
Public visé : Expert

Résumé de l'éditeur

The Tomes of Delphi series books are reference guides for using the Windows 32 bit API in Delphi. As such, this book is not a tutorial, and is not meant to be read from start to finish. There are over 200 examples in the book, and every API function covered is used in an example. The book also includes coverage of poorly documented aspects of certain API functions.

The CD that comes with the book includes all of the code from the book, additional example programs, shareware and freeware components, help files, and third-party development tools (InstallShield, DemoShield and more)

The book is devided into 16 chapters (~900 pages) that will let you discover the graphical Win32 API functions, those functions used to display graphics and user interface elements, and includes chapters on bitmap and metafile creation and manipulation, icons, the graphics device interface, drawing primitives such as lines and circles, menus, resources, printing and text output, colour palette management, regions and paths, and the Windows 95 shell. Each function entry contains the syntax, a description of what the function does, a list and description of parameters, acceptable constant values, return values, cross-references to related functions, and an example of its use in Delphi's Object Pascal.

Whether you're an experienced Delphi programmer with a working knowledge of Windows programming or an intermediate Delphi programmer, this book will help you to extend the functionality of Delphi components and objects and demonstrate what the Win32 Graphical API can do for you. This book is a must for any serious Delphi graphics programmer.

Critique du livre par la rédaction Serge Girard le 6 janvier 2015
C'est vrai que de l'eau a coulé sous les ponts depuis mais ce livre est toujours en bonne place dans ma bibliothèque et quand j'ai un petit doute je m'y replonge avec délice.
Quand on veut un peu "déborder du cadre conventionnel" pour par exemple maîtriser l'affichage de la barre de titre ou simplement pour le dessin, ce livre est une mine d'informations de départ.

The Tomes of Delphi 3 : Win32 Graphical API
John Ayres, David Bowden, Larry Diehl, Phil Dorcas, harrison, Kenneth Harrison, Phillip Dorcas, Rod Mathes, Ovais Reza, Mike Tobin



The Tomes of Delphi series books are reference guides for using the Windows 32 bit API in Delphi. As such, this book is not a tutorial, and is not meant to be read from start to finish. There are over 200 examples in the book, and every API function covered is used in an example. The book also includes coverage of poorly documented aspects of certain API functions.

The CD that comes with the book includes all of the code from the book, additional example programs, shareware and freeware components, help files, and third-party development tools (InstallShield, DemoShield and more)

The book is devided into 16 chapters (~900 pages) that will let you discover the graphical Win32 API functions, those functions used to display graphics and user interface elements, and includes chapters on bitmap and metafile creation and manipulation, icons, the graphics device interface, drawing primitives such as lines and circles, menus, resources, printing and text output, colour palette management, regions and paths, and the Windows 95 shell. Each function entry contains the syntax, a description of what the function does, a list and description of parameters, acceptable constant values, return values, cross-references to related functions, and an example of its use in Delphi's Object Pascal.

Whether you're an experienced Delphi programmer with a working knowledge of Windows programming or an intermediate Delphi programmer, this book will help you to extend the functionality of Delphi components and objects and demonstrate what the Win32 Graphical API can do for you. This book is a must for any serious Delphi graphics programmer.

Bonjour,

Dis voir, sans vouloir te vexer à propos des résumés en anglais : La Règle n° III-A du Forum dit "Ce forum est un forum francophone". On fait une exception ???
Faudrait un automate de traduction sur le site ...

Ce n'est pas une exception : c'est dans la rubrique "Livres en anglais"...

Pas la peine d'allécher les non anglophones par un résumé en français s'ils ne peuvent ensuite le lire !
