Delphi MVC Web Framework – “Hello World”

This is the first “Hello World” for my Delphi MVC Web Framework.

program DelphiMVCWebFramework;

{$APPTYPE CONSOLE}

uses
  System.SysUtils,
  MVCEngine in 'MVCEngine.pas',
  BaseController in 'BaseController.pas';

var
  mvc: TWebMVCEngine;
begin
  mvc := TWebMVCEngine.Create;
  mvc.AddRoute('/', procedure(Context: TWebContext)
    begin
      Context.Write('Hello World');
    end).Start(8080);
  ReadLn;
  mvc.Free;
end.

#1 “dorm, the Delphi ORM” bullettin

This is the first post regarding a fast update on the last changes to the dorm project in terms of management and code.

  • Welcome to 2 new contributors: mrbar2000 and magnomp (this is the full list http://code.google.com/p/delphi-orm/people/list)
  • Added a PersistentStrategy for SQLite.
  • New Google Group related to dorm. Post your questions, comments and request here!
  • Added support for Generics Collections. No more needs of TdormCollection. You classes are completely decoupled from the framework.
  • A brand new mapping strategy is under development. There will be “3 levels” of mapping: Config File, RTTI Attributes and “Conventions Over Configuration” (CoC) (do you wanna check the code in dev branch? Click here)
  • Added more unittests
  • Roadmap updated
  • Initial support for MS SQLServer in a development branch (Thanks to Claudio Regonat)
There are plenty of new features still to come. Stay tuned!
