According to Amazon.com the much anticipated C++Builder Developer's Guide is now shipping!!
I have written six C++Builder 6 chapters (on dbExpress, BizSnap, XML Document Programming, SOAP & Web Services, DataSnap, and WebSnap - 162 pages in total) and can assure you that the book will be worth the wait.
You can now order C++Builder Developer's Guide from Amazon.com (with a 30% discount) and also from Amazon.co.uk. The previous edition (called C++Builder 5 Developer's Guide) will be in PDF-format on the CD with this book. Note that I get a small commission for each on-line Amazon order from my website (so thanks in advance for those of you who wil order).
For those of you who already have the previous edition, the new one will be even better with updated material and lots of new C++Builder 6 specific topics.
A quote from the foreword of the book:
"Welcome to the second edition in the C++Builder Developerís Guide series. Our goal for this book was to put forth the most informative and practical reference on C++Builder to date. Building on the success of C++Builder 5 Developerís Guide, we have concentrated on the essential elements and capabilities of C++Builder, including the very latest features provided by C++Builder 6.
Topics in this edition include fresh material on XML, SOAP, the Windows API, COM, DLLs, VCL, CLX component development, database development, plus much more including a look at mobile application development. Weíve gone to great lengths to provide practical examples and discussions to common issues, and explore topics not previously covered."
My own previous MIDAS chapter was updated with new material into two new DataSnap chapters, and I wrote four completely new chapters on dbExpress, BizSnap: XML Document Programming, BizSnap: SOAP and Web Services, and Web Server Development with WebSnap. All C++Builder 6 new features...
