Introducing FireMonkey - The Next Generation Business Application Platform

Integrating FireMonkey Into Your Existing VCL, C# and C++ Applications
by Stephen Ball
 

FireMonkey is the first native CPU and GPU powered platform for rich business applications.


In this paper, we will look at what is required to create a shared library with FireMonkey in RAD Studio that can be used across multiple platforms, specifically with Windows and Mac OS X. We will look at using the new library in Delphi FireMonkey and VCL applications and also with C#.


We will cover using the shared library for containing business logic that is shared across applications using examples. The first will be a simple library with no visual elements. The second will use FireMonkey forms within the library and illustrate the differences this causes due to GDI+. Finally, we also look at what is required to call the second example from a C# application.


The techniques used in this paper are relevant and applicable for developers using C++Builder to write visual (using FireMonkey) and non-visual code.
