Delphi 2010 XML, SOAP and Web Services courseware manual

Author: Bob Swart
Posted: 3/12/2010 2:00:14 PM (GMT+1)

125 pages, 34,883 words, and several dozen screenshots make up revision 381 of my Delphi 2010 XML, SOAP and Web Services manual (see table of contents), which will be available for purchase from my webshop starting this weekend.

Earlier this weekend, the PDF file will be sent free of charge to everyone who purchased my Delphi 2007 XML, SOAP and Web Services manual in PDF format directly from me (including support and updates). Normally, people would only get updates for the manual of the same edition of Delphi, as well as a cheap upgrade offer for the next version. But since there was no Delphi 2009 edition of this manual, I decided to skip the upgrade offer and just send them a free complimentary upgrade.

The Delphi 2010 XML, SOAP and Web Services PDF courseware manual focusses on native Windows techniques only, i.e. Win32 and no .NET. People who purchase this PDF file for 99 Euro (plus VAT where applicable) will get a choice of a free accompanying PDF manual. Either they select the default Delphi 2009 Development Essentials PDF (covering all new features in Delphi 2009, including Unicode), or they pick the RAD Studio 2007 XML, SOAP and Web Services PDF, which covers Win32 and .NET using RAD Studio 2007, or they wait a few weeks for the Delphi Prism 2010 Development Essentials PDF, which (among others) covers ASP.NET Web Services.

This offer is valid until the Delphi Prism 2010 Development Essentials PDF courseware manual is finished (and sold as separate book), which will be before the end of this month.



IL 10/03/12 14:58:03Mr.Swart, am I right that you split one "RAD Studio 2007 XML, SOAP and Web Services" to later manuals: Delphi 2009, Delphi 2010 for web and Delphi Prism 2010? I didn't compare table of contents and wonder what is the best buy offer here :) And could you transform all bold text in the post to hyperlinks?
Bob Swart 10/03/12 15:03:02RAD Studio 2007 XML, SOAP and Web Services is indeed split into a Delphi 2010 manual for native Windows (Win32) coverage only. People who want to do .NET can use Delphi Prism (and wait a bit more for that manual), or use the Delphi for .NET personality of RAD Studio 2007.
The table of contents for the Delphi Prism 2010 Development Essentials manual isn't finished, so I cannot show you a link for that one, yet. But it will contain mainly ASP.NET content - at least as much as I covered in the .NET part of the RAD Studio 2007 XML, SOAP & Web Services manual.
Spiderman 10/03/12 20:56:21The PDF versions with updates are too expensive in my opinion (99 Euro) even if we get the bonus PDF.
Bob Swart 10/03/12 21:00:03If 99 Euro is too expensive for you, then you can get the printed paperback from for half the price. If that's still too expensive for you, then you will have to find things out using other resources I'm afraid...
Bob Swart 10/03/13 00:19:01See for the book on Lulu
Troy W 10/03/13 01:20:33How does this work? I can just buy "Delphi 2010 XML, SOAP and Web Services" from Lulu using this link, and then you'll contact me to ask me which of the PDFs I want?
Bob Swart 10/03/13 08:28:10No, if you buy the paperback from Lulu you will get no additional free PDF, and also no updates (or e-mail support). The paperback on Lulu is made available for those who do not want (or can afford) the PDF file with updates and support.
Troy W 10/03/14 23:30:52I just read by a blogger that SOAP server support in Delphi 2010 is on the "deprecated list". Is this true? If so, is there an official reference somewhere (from Embarcaderro) to confirm this?
Bob Swart 10/03/14 23:33:12See SOAP Server Notes in the readme.htm of Delphi 2010, which says: The Win32 SOAP server support generates the older RPC|Encoded style WebServices. If you want a document/literal service or a service of any other WS-I compliant style, you should build your SOAP server using Delphi Prism, which supports the SOAP specifications that are supported by the .NET framework, including WS-I compliant styles.
Bob Swart 10/03/14 23:34:12So SOAP Server Support is not deprecated, still present, although it's not extended either (while SOAP client support has been extended with SOAP v1.2 support for example, and partly rewritten for Unicode in Delphi 2009, etc).
IL 10/03/15 08:09:03Dear Mr.Swart, thank you for the links. A list of your coursewares is very intriguing. Do you have plans to offer "Delphi 2010 Development Essentials" and "Delphi 2010 DataSnap 2010 Development" in similar way? I think that Delphi materials in the course form would be useful for me. Another 99 Euro for two other courses is a good deal. Does 4 coursewares mentioned above are full information source on Delphi 2010 you are willing to write? Just interesting, are you planning something else? It would be nice to hear about such ways of using Delphi as: RemObjects SDK/Hydra, MacOs/iPhone, architecture of enterprise database/web applications.
Bob Swart 10/03/15 08:23:09Delphi 2010 Development Essentials will be offered in the same way - both on Lulu and on my own site with updates and support. The DataSnap 2010 book will not be offered on Lulu, since there is already my big free 53-page white paper that people can download and print. I will only offer the DataSnap 2010 bigger courseware manual as PDF with support (for those that need the extra information and e-mail support on the topics covered in the manual).

I'm serously considering writing a special book on RemObjects SDK (it's often a bonus chapter in some of the other manuals), as well as Hydra.

Bob Swart 10/03/16 13:56:51Due to feedback and demand, there's a special March 2010 offer now: when you order Delphi 2010 XML, SOAP and Web Services, you can purchase the Delphi for Win32 VCL for the Web / IntraWeb manual for half the price (but still including all upgrade and e-mail support rights).
IL 10/03/18 14:36:23Dear Mr.Swart, it is unclear from your last post does one can buy "Delphi 2010 XML, SOAP and Web Services" courseware for 99 Euro and choose another from the list of "2009 Development Essentials", "RAD Studio 2007 XML, SOAP and Web Services", "Delphi Prism 2010 Development Essentials" for free AND purchase the "Delphi for Win32 VCL for the Web / IntraWeb" manual for 49,50 Euro? So, could offers be combined in such way? On your homepage it is clearly said "New buyers of the PDF manual can get a second manual for free, with a choice between... Or they can purchase the Delphi for Win32 VCL for the Web / IntraWeb Development for half the price..." So one have to choose between a free another courseware or manual for half the price. But on special offer for "Delphi 2010 XML, SOAP and Web Services" and "Delphi for Win32 VCL for the Web / IntraWeb" manual for half the price courseware is listed only. So free chosen courseware is not mentioned at all. And is "Delphi for Win32 VCL for the Web / IntraWeb Development" manual and "Delphi 2007 VCL for the Web / IntraWeb Development" courseware the same thing? I see that links IntraWeb.pdf on and your courseware list are the same. Do you have plans on syncing this manual/courseware to Delphi 2009/2010 Intraweb? Does this manual still usefull for one who has got Delphi 2010 only? Thanks again!
Bob Swart 10/03/18 14:39:19You have a choice of 1 free manual (from the list of 3) or the Web Development manual for half the price. This is also mentioned in the webshop if you go to the details of the XML, SOAP and WEb Services manual (but I will make it more clear on as well).
Bob Swart 10/03/18 14:40:45"Delphi for Win32 VCL for the Web / IntraWeb Development" is the same as "Delphi 2007 VCL for the Web / IntraWeb Development" and the same as "Delphi for Win32 Web Development", covering WebBroker, InternetExpress, WebSnap, and IntraWeb at this time - fourth edition is almost finished and 300 pages now. It will be send as free update to anyone who purchased the PDF edition with support from me.
Mihaela MJ 10/03/30 00:25:34Hi I could really benefit from a special book on RemObjects SDK. Regards.
