Kylix Development targets the throngs of Linux developers who are starved for a tool that gives them the Linux development power they need, coupled with a convenient rapid application development environment. This unique book also focuses on the needs of current Windows and Borland developers who are taking their first steps into the Linux universe with Borland’s cutting-edge visual development tool for Linux.

Special chapters are dedicated to weaning Windows developers away from proprietary Windows development concepts as they are introduced to the Linux world. Kylix Development examines the complex tasks that face project managers who are porting Windows applications to Linux and writing single-source code that can function in both Windows and Linux environments.

KEY FEATURES AND BENEFITS: Kylix Development allows developers of every background to master Linux development with the easiest and arguably the most powerful tool in the software development environment. Linux developers will enjoy its step-by-step introduction to the Delphi for Linux two-way visual interface and integrated development environment.

Windows developers will benefit from the Windows Alert sections that point out platform-specific issues and techniques. Project managers will appreciate the special chapters dedicated to porting applications from Windows to Linux and to developing technical plans for moving or expanding to Linux. Whether the reader is developing components or applications, or implementing migration strategies, he will find the answers in Kylix Development Features highlighted in this book include the re-creation of the VCL, the new event model, and the transformation of the data layer.
