Delphi for .NET Developer's Guide by Xavier Pacheco is the first book about the new generation of Borland Delphi development environment. Delphi 8 is the first version of Delphi that allows programmers to harness the power of Microsoft .NET framework, and bring productivity to the new levels through advanced technologies and application lifecycle management.The collaboration of author and several contributing writers enabled this book to bring fresh and relevant information in print quickly. I enjoyed this format while reading the book; the mix of styles brought in by different people makes reading moving. At the same time it is in no way disconnected, and the well-structured set-up is definitely felt through the chapters.Seeing how fast this book was brought to the market, some minor discrepancies and misprints are excusable, do not lower the technical value of the book, and can be overlooked. I haven't noticed any serious mistakes.The book includes a concise introduction to .NET and to the Delphi language, as well as the more important features of the new Delphi for .NET environment. Such subjects as Assemblies, GDI+ programming, Cross Platform demonstration, Reflection, and memory management are discussed.Most developers will find chapters on .NET collections, strings and multithreading extremely useful. Interoperability with unmanaged applications, and WinForms programming are also covered.Multitier development is mostly discussed in the context of web services and .NET remoting. Which are very powerful concepts of the new framework that will definitely progress in the future.Unfortunately, there are no chapters on the Borland VCL.NET.
