Ok, here's the ultimate factor in how successful a programming language becomes... Bauer's gotta get some tips from Intersimone immediately....
According to Tamir Kahson, there's a direct correlation between the success of a programming language and the length of the facial hair on the face of the man who built it. And he may have a point.

TSOAPConnection and SSL (Delphi XE8).
I have a project here using midas to exchange data over SOAP webservices. Now i should secure the connection with SSL. Is it done if i use https://.. in the URL? Really? See..
http://docwiki.embarcadero.com/RADStudio/XE8/en/Specifying_a_Connection_Using_SOAP
Go Up to Connecting to the Application Server. You can establish a connection to a SOAP application server using the Soap.SOAPConn.TSoapConnection component. TSoapConnection is very similar to TWebConnection, because it also uses HTTP as a transport protocol. Thus, you can use TSoapConnection ...

I think there may be some confusion because the DocWiki says "also uses HTTP." I'm not certain but would like to hear what others say.

Ich hab da ein kleines Tutorial gemacht, wie man eine 32-bit  ISAPI-dll unter einem 64-bit IIS zum Laufen kriegt. Das Hauptaugenmerk liegt dabei auf der Konfiguration des IIS zum Hinaufladen grosser Dateien.

Official EMBT Updates  - 
 
Is this solved in XE8? No? Then the whole thing is useless for me. Wont upgrade until https://quality.embarcadero.com/browse/RSP-9568
is solved.
 
Very very annoying, XE7 is unusable! 
Out of memory, exceptions, very slow, etc.

please vote for this QC!
https://quality.embarcadero.com/browse/RSP-9568

+Marco Cantu: I thought you said there were many bugs solved? And XE7 is the best IDE? Well, I have to tell some customers to downgrade to XE6 now... :(
(and no, SP1 did not fix this)

Michal, it is possible to log your issue, then send the project to Embarcadero privately (afaik, NDA can be signed by them if required) in case it contains sensitive information or is large.

Tips & Tricks  - 
 
I thinking about to create a master vm (citrix) with delphi and all needed components installed on it. Then i wants to clone this vm for my two developers. They have theif own user in our active directory. The sourcecode is located per svn on the users homedirectory. So i could update only the master vm with the newest delphi version and components and clone this for my developers. The sourcecode (local svn copies on the home directorys) are not touched on this process. Have someone done this before? Could that work? What problems might be occur?

Any help would be great!

+Jean-Marc Kiener Delphi could certainly make this easier. This approach is pretty decent though if you need to be able to patch very old versions, which we do.

The build/install tool is basically a glorified batch file, and since it's also in svn of course it doesn't need any options or such.

We don't stay current with all the releases though, lately we've updated Delphi once a year. Though that's mostly due to the large number of comppnents we rely on and the testing needed after updates to make sure essential stuff still works as they should.

Need help! Please show me how to organize this.
 
Years ago we decided to move our codebase from Delphi 7 to XE2. So we checked all our needed Components (Devart, Devexpress, Rave Reports, Gnostice) are aviable for XE2. When all was ok, we moved forward to XE2. We testet all our modules and it was not a big thing to get all work fine. But it takes time. Not a lot of, but enough.
Since then i made nearly the same procedure for Delphi XE6. Then i stopped introducing new versions. To much efort. We do not have any phone apps at moment (but planned in future). We have a huge inhouse ERP system, tons of webservices and software for our customers out there. For this part of software the most of the funky new stuff is useless, because it works as it is and there is no need to rewrite something to make it hip.
The main problem is: EMB can make as much marketing bling as they want. We can't upgrade to a new version until all of our component vendors are ready. If one of them stops to make the version race, we also stop to upgrade Delphi.
Also, as mentioned, we wants to start developing phone apps.

At moment, our goal is to keep all our codebase to one delphi version.
Is this the wrong approach?

Should we have for every software project we build using the expected Delphi version (include the external components)?

Some years ago i tryed to install serveral Delphi versions in a same VM but i failed to run it properly. So should i have one VM for each Delphi version?

How could that be handled if you are more than one developer (We are three at moment)?

You see, i'm a little confused at moment. I do not know how to organize that.

I tryed to call a webservice form a ISAPI Module (Delphi XE6, 64bit). I get an AV on the line calling the webservice. Targedet on 32bit it works well. if found following:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/16083434/delphi-xe2-64-bit-isapi-access-violation

I sheems that this still happens in Delphi XE6. Does anybody knows a solution for that?

The problem is that the code of the AllocFirstStageIntercept function assumes that the jmp destination address is within a 32 bit range from curent ip.
In Windows 8.1 address returned by HeapAlloc may not be within this range.
I've written a solution in https://quality.embarcadero.com/browse/RSP-9949
